Habu Emerges as Leader in Burgeoning Data Collaboration Market as Urgency for Companies to Use Data to Optimize Revenue and Transform the Customer Experience Accelerates

Company Showcases Impressive Revenue Growth and Addition of Marquee Customers Across Industries Including Retail, CPG, Gaming, Media & Entertainment, Auto and Financial Services

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Habu, the Global Innovator in Data Clean Room Software, today announced a record breaking year with 800% growth and the addition of marquee customers including: Activision, ASICS, Insider and Digital Trends.

In the last decade, the tremendous value that data offers businesses to future-proof existing initiatives and fuel digital transformation has seen a rocket ship trajectory. However, tapping into that value is a challenge due to a combination of technology, privacy, governance, risk, ownership and trust considerations. These roadblocks have put an urgent pressure on solution providers to better connect and utilize data across distributed systems. In fact, Merkle research recently said that 61% of executives will increase investments in data clean rooms to tackle the issues, while 23% will prioritize data clean rooms due to privacy-related changes.

Habu’s growth is attributed to capitalizing on this high demand by developing superior solutions. Early market adoption was first seen in advertising -- marketers looking to manage their own data within the organization and across Industry clean rooms including Google Ads Data Hub, Facebook Advanced Analytics and Amazon Marketing Cloud for measurement, reporting, attribution, modeling, optimization, activation and experimentation. The next wave attracted business users and data scientists across all disciplines, looking to stand up their own clean rooms for data collaboration with partners to gain deeper insight for better decision-making.

“We spent a long time with companies quietly building a superior product to meet the ubiquitous need to make the data collaboration process seamless and more secure so that companies can understand and utilize data wherever it is needed,” said Matt Kilmartin, Habu Co-founder & CEO. “This past year we saw a surge in not just new customers but a concentration of brands using Habu’s Data Clean Rooms for many different industries and applications.”
