Sixgill, a platform-as-a-service for managing sensor-data raised a $27.9M Series B round at an unknown valuation. DRW Venture Capital led the round with participation from Mobile Financial Partners.
The company previously raised venture funding of $6M in March last year. Its total equity funding has reached $33.9M in two rounds from three investors. Existing investors led the previous round as well. The platform’s primary use case is helping to collect torrents of new sensor data, originating from multiple sensors, at one place.
“Cheap and plentiful sensors are penetrating every corner of the enterprise, generating valuable data and creating a vast opportunity to make any organization smarter and more responsive.” Sixgill is building the foundation data services that can help every industry tap the next leg of productivity growth,” said Harry Hopper, founder & managing partner at Mobile Financial Partners.
Products include Sixgill Sense, Sixgill mobile SDK called Reach, an API, and a companion app called Sixgill Sync.
Typical scenarios supported by the Sixgill platform include sensor data analysis, triggering rule-based actions, context-specific messaging, and track people and things via a cloud dashboard.
Sixgill markets itself as an end-to-end platform providing acquisition, analysis and action capabilities.
