Dan DeMers, CEO and Co-Founder of Cinchy, is a business leader and pioneer in data solutions and the emerging dataware category. Before founding Cinchy, he spent over a decade at some of the largest financial institutions in the world, delivering mission-critical global systems and overseeing multi-million-dollar technology investments. During that time, he saw upfront how half of all IT resources get wasted on integration efforts.
Data marts, data warehouses, data lakes and lake houses, data mesh and even data fabric solutions didn’t solve the core problems or fix analytics issues. They all ignored or “worked around” the underlying problem. DeMers realized that a true solution would have to change the way we originate, manage, and share data within and across operational systems and business processes.
Cinchy was born out of that vision, and has already made huge advances in simplifying processes around data. He has forcefully advocated this transformation at many leading conferences, including TechCrunch, Finovate, Strata NYC, and Ai4.
