About Switchboard

Switchboard enables enterprise business teams to be data-driven with minimal engineering investment. When our co-founders launched Google BigQuery in 2012, they saw first-hand that the amount of data companies were grappling with was rapidly outstripping their ability to utilize it. Switchboard was created to help solve this problem. 

Our ready-made data unification platform turns disparate data into a single source of reliable, trustworthy information. Business stakeholders at Spotify, Meredith Corporation, The Financial Times, Pearson and others have left behind outdated spreadsheets and custom engineering projects. Today, they rely on Switchboard to make confident decisions that engage audiences, optimize yield and spend, and grow revenue.
