phData Acquires Tessellation and Data Coach

phData today announced that it has acquired Tessellation, an analytics and business intelligence consulting company.

This acquisition brings Tessellation's innovative analytics and data visualization services to phData's growing portfolio of data engineering and machine learning solutions. phData will also inherit Tessellation's analytics & BI learning platform, Data Coach. Full details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 2018 and headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Tessellation partners with organizations to help them better understand how their analytics tools work so they can get the most out of their investments. Tessellation works across several leading analytics platforms including Tableau, Alteryx, Microsoft, AWS, Google Cloud, Fivetran, Matillion, and Snowflake. Their online learning and development platform, called Data Coach, features video lessons and one-on-one coaching focused on enabling large organizations to become data literate with leading business intelligence tools and self-service analytics software.

"I've never been more excited about the possibilities for our business and our team," said Ryan Bosshart, CEO of phData. "With the addition of Tessellation and Data Coach, we're coming to market with a complete, end-to-end offering for analytics and machine learning. We're serving the entire analytics lifecycle with our combined services and, with Data Coach, we can better enable customers with in-house talent strategies."

phData has rapidly grown to more than 200 world-class employees, doubling its employee count in just the last three years. phData has also achieved a three-year revenue growth of 209 percent, which was a key contributor to its recent placement on the Inc. 5000 list of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies. 

With competencies in the world's leading data technologies like Snowflake, AWS, Spark, Dataiku, and Azure, phData provides unmatched data engineering and machine learning services to enterprises of all sizes through sustainable engineering principles. 

"Our customers are continuing to innovate, expand, and demand value from their data & analytics tools and capabilities. Together with phData, we can offer a transformational, end-to-end services model that ensures our customers have the strategy, infrastructure, process, proficiency, governance, and communities of practice in place to achieve that value," said Baxter Boe, Founding Partner of Tessellation. 

"We are here to support a true enterprise data platform approach by offering passionate technologists that both deliver and coach our clients to a successful outcome, and in phData, we have found a true partner that shares our passion for providing a value-centric, impactful experience."

The acquisition of Tessellation will enhance and extend phData's offering to customers who are quickly maturing and seeking expert professional services spanning the full spectrum of data analytics and machine learning.

Together, both companies are positioned for tremendous growth, offering current and future customers the most complete set of professional data and machine learning services in the industry.
