DataRobot Acquires Data Collaboration Platform Cursor

Acquisition to further bolster DataRobot’s data management
capabilities, making data and AI even more accessible

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DataRobot,
the leader in automated machine learning, today announced that it has
acquired Cursor,
a San Francisco-based company that provides a data collaboration
platform which helps organizations find, understand and use data more
efficiently.

After spending years at leading technology companies like LinkedIn,
Salesforce and Pandora, industry veterans Adam Weinstein, Patrick
Farrell and Jason McGhee founded Cursor in 2017. The team saw the
opportunity to build a unified search experience across a company’s data
assets — including code, metadata and insights — in order to bridge the
gap between business and technical users. Cursor helps organizations
better search and comprehend their data by marrying an easy-to-use data
catalog with powerful tools that all users can leverage to inform
immediate action. With its built-in coding environment and user-friendly
data dictionary and collaboration tools, Cursor supports every level
within a business.

“We’ve seen the value that gets unleashed when companies truly become
data-driven,” said Weinstein, CEO of Cursor. “We are very excited to
join forces with DataRobot, not only because of our common missions,
but also because of our shared passion for helping people get deeper
insights from their data.”

Cursor is used by hundreds of companies, including large enterprises in
the technology, financial services and retail industries. As part of the
acquisition, DataRobot will build a San Francisco office, expanding its
presence in a geography where numerous customers already exist.
DataRobot will also integrate Cursor’s technology into its automated
machine learning platform.

“The Cursor technology and team are key pieces of the puzzle for
DataRobot’s vision of an AI-driven world,” said Jeremy Achin, CEO of
DataRobot. “The Cursor team has architected an incredible platform and
shares DataRobot’s mission to build unprecedented levels of automation
across the AI pipeline. We’re thrilled to have them on board.”
