A Look Back at 2021

Katana Graph is off to a stellar start and we are looking forward to shaping how enterprises in domains ranging from financial services to health and life sciences to security glean insights from massive amounts of data.

We have built a great leadership team whose passion is evident from the elegance of our high-performance scale-out graph processing, AI, and analytics products and services.

"Our collaboration with Katana Graph will accelerate the adoption of graph analytics on market-leading Intel Xeon Scalable processors as well as our upcoming GPUs, enabling more customers to take advantage of this insightful technique." Wei Li, Vice President, Intel Architecture, Graphics and Software

Among the many notable highlights of 2021, Katana Graph was featured in several prominent publications and cited as one of the top companies to watch. Despite the difficulties brought on by the pandemic, Katana Graph presented at several conferences virtually as well as in person, including the AI & Big Data Expo North America (watch senior software engineer Roshan Dathathri discuss "Graph Analytics and AI: A Breakthrough Approach to Analyze Massive Data Sets") and Connected Data World (watch our CEO and co-founder Keshav Pingali's presentation "Knowledge Graphs, Graph AI, and the Need for High-performance Graph Computing"). We are also proud to have been chosen as the showcased Graph Intelligence Platform at the Intel Innovation Conference.
