Delman, a Jakarta-based big data management and analytics provider, has bagged USD 1.6 million in a seed funding round, the company announced on Tuesday. The investment was led by “Indonesia-only” VC firm Intudo Ventures, with participation from Prasetia Dwidharma Ventures and Qlue Performa Indonesia, a company that provides smart city solutions.
Delman said it will utilize the funding to continue developing its big data analytics ecosystem, establish an R&D center, as well as expanding its team with qualified software engineers and data scientists.
Founded in 2018 by Surya Halim, Raymond Christopher, and Theo Budiyanto, Delman aims to accelerate digital transformation by integrating and warehousing data sources in an efficient manner. It provides tailored data management solutions to Indonesian enterprises, optimizing operations and human resources with big data analytics.
The most typical data quality-related issues in Indonesia have been related to unstructured or unmatched data, either traditionally managed or handled by inexperienced teams, according to CEO Surya Halim. “We found that, on average, teams may spend up to USD 200,000 and 70% of time allocation on cleaning and warehousing data alone. With the support of our backers, we look forward to working with public and private stakeholders in Indonesia to assist them in driving forward digital upgrading efforts,” he said in a statement.
Delman’s clients include government, consulting firms, and multinational companies across different sectors.
