Big data wasn't always "Big Data." "I was in the Big Data space before the term was coined. We'd say 'yeah, there's a lot of data,'" recalls Bassel Ojjeh, chief executive officer of nPario, a two-year old Palo Alto, Calif.-based firm that sifts through big media corporations' troves of data to deliver insights about their customers.
nPario, a leading provider of Big Data publisher and marketing solutions, today announced that the company has formed a strategic partnership with Ensighten, an enterprise tag management solutions innovator.

The partnership with Ensighten provides nPario customers with an industry-leading tag management solution.
Over the past month several studies have been released, all indicating that the wealth of data online isn't being used to its fullest potential. Either brands aren't making the data actionable or they're utilizing the data is ways that don't enhance the customer experience. One platform, nPario, offers brands Audience DNA - actionable customer insights which can then be used to drive online campaigns. I recently had the chance to chat with nPario CEO Bassel Ojjeh about audience DNA.
Rejection is the tip of the iceberg. Contrary to the ultra-happy stories that most entrepreneurs share about the experience of launching a new startup, the job isn't always a piece of cake. "Funding is a strange beast," Bassel Ojjeh, the former Senior VP of the Strategic Data Solutions division at Yahoo! and the founder of several companies, told Benzinga. "It's organized chaos that sometimes produces an outcome. And only time can tell if it's the desired outcome." Ojjeh, who most recently founded nPario, said that as a startup guy, "you really find yourself thinking of all avenues to get your startup idea funded. What I would probably say is that someone's reputation and social network (and I don't mean Twitter followers) is what helps the most," he said.
Startups often think that getting funded is a grand achievement. But is it? Bassel Ojjeh doesn't think so. As the former Senior VP of the Strategic Data Solutions division at Yahoo! and the founder of several companies, Ojjeh came to this conclusion with years of experience. "I'd like to think of myself as a data practitioner and evangelist and have been passionate about data throughout my career," Ojjeh told Benzinga. "I believe anyone can tell a great story, but the greatest story can be told if based on data-driven insights."

What if you amassed petabytes of data, then realized you had nothing you wanted to do with it? It's not enough to hoard data, or run basic analytics hoping for patterns.

His startup has just raised $5 million in a first round of funding from WPP Digital to help make those apps possible.

nPario holds an exclusive license from Yahoo for technology based on columnar storage that within Yahoo's internal infrastructure handles over eight petabytes of data for advertising and promotion, per a February 2011 discussion with nPario President and CEO Bassel Y. Ojjeh. nPario has basically forked the code, so that Yahoo can continue their internal use while nPario goes to market with a commercial offering for external customers. The nPario technology enables analysis at the granular level, not just at aggregate or sampled data. In addition to supporting a range of other data sources, nPario offers full integration with Adobe Omniture, including APIs that can pull data from Omniture (although Omniture charges a fee for this download).
