Explorium was founded by Maor Shlomo (CEO), Or Tamir (COO), and Omer Har (CTO), three Israeli tech entrepreneurs who previously led large-scale data mining and optimization platforms for organizations such as ironSource, Natural Intelligence, and the IDF's elite intelligence unit 8200.
The founders observed that enterprises need external data to make business decisions, but getting the right data is complicated and resource-intensive. For data teams, it's impossible to determine which datasets will make their advanced analytics or machine learning programs deliver the best results. If they do manage to acquire the right external data, they struggle to onboard it successfully. Preparing, matching, and integrating external data with BI and ML platforms takes too much time to deliver any real ROI.
