About Data.world

A company with a conscience

When the world’s data is transformed into knowledge, opportunities emerge for everyone.

Our Story

We began with an audacious mission to build the most meaningful, collaborative, and abundant data resource in the world.

Today, data.world is widely recognized as the leading enterprise data catalog and governance platform powering the strategic data initiatives for some of the world’s most recognizable brands.

We are democratizing data access and championing inclusive, agile processes for data work

data.world brings data producers and data consumers together to build a culture of data at their organizations. We help make data discovery, governance, and analysis easy, turning data workers into knowledge superheroes.

We are a Public Benefit Corporation

We are a Certified B Corporation

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. data.world was certified in 2016 and earned Best for the World Honors in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

We are home to the world’s largest collaborative open data community 

It’s where people discover data, share analysis, and team up on everything from social bot detection to award-winning data journalism. We use what we learn from this community to improve the enterprise product and vice versa.

Who?

The Owl...

You may be wondering why these cute owls are all over our website and bio photos. We can explain! Sparkle is the name of our OWL, and it is a nod to our underlying graph query language, SPARQL.

You see, one of our heroes is Tim Berners-Lee and we were particularly inspired by his TED talk on linked data. Also, the name of the underlying semantic web language is Web Ontology Language and the acronym is… wait for it… OWL. Ok, so those are the geeky reasons (and we are indeed data geeks at data.world).
