About Pantomath

Pantomath is a data pipeline observability and traceability platform, revolutionizing the way enterprises automate their modern data stack. In today’s digital age, organizations are continuously striving to be more data-driven, relying on dashboards, analytics, and data pipelines to gain visibility into their operations. The underlying complexity of stringing together various data sources and applications means there are many places in the data stack where something can break, leading to poor business decisions and lack of trust in data as an organization. Pantomath enables its customers to drive data reliability and trust in data, ensuring operational stability and data trustworthiness across complex data ecosystems.

The company was founded by Somesh Saxena in 2022, formerly serving as the Head of Data & Analytics at GE Aerospace. Pantomath’s customers include several F500s and is VC backed by Sierra Ventures, Bowery Capital, and Epic Ventures.
