Kiwi data migration start-up launches in US

Eight Wire, which has been working with retail, manufacturing and healthcare customers in NZ, has launched in the US with support partner, HUGEData out of Dallas.

Eight Wire, a New Zealand-based data management start-up that focuses on solutions to automate data migration and aims to replace the need for firms to hire developers to work with manual integration tools, officially launched operations in the US yesterday.

The company, which has been working with retail, manufacturing and healthcare customers in NZ, has launched in the US with support partner, HUGEData out of Dallas.

Eight Wire’s tool, Conductor, seamlessly migrates millions of rows of data to the cloud through a simple four-step process that doesn’t require any coding knowledge.

“All over the world, admins and analysts are spending weeks building data feeds from scratch. This process is risky, time consuming and outdated,” said Jason Gleason, director and co-founder at Eight Wire. “Conductor compares source and destination data, maps it together and automatically fixes errors as it goes. Development costs can be lowered by 80 per cent and support costs can be lowered by as much as 60 per cent using Conductor.”

Gleason founded Eight Wire with Nigel Thomas in 2013 to solve the frustrations of using traditional integration tools the two experienced over time spent in business intelligence consulting.

“We drew up a list of pain points such as difficulty translating between databases, flexibly handling data errors, and having to build every solution from scratch. Conductor is an answer to each of those and more, allowing your IT staff to focus on real problems,” said Gleason.

“Conductor is blazing fast. A recent customer moved 650 tables and 1 million rows in 15 minutes. The estimate of the effort required to manually build the data migration and integration solution was eight weeks,” he said.

Available on IBM’s Marketplace, Eight Wire offers individual and enterprise plans depending on the number of data rows being moved each month. Plans start at $200.
