Our Story

Why we started Telmai

Quite simply we were frustrated!

After spending decades in enterprise data space, and experiencing the challenges around data anomaly monitoring, we felt the need to be a part of the solution to the problem. We witnessed first hand that the smallest anomaly in data could lead to catastrophic effects in business and operations.

Data engineering and analytics teams are constantly living in escalation mode. Traditional rules and static dashboard-based solutions are failing for today's high volume, highly volatile, unpredictable, and unstructured data.


Today's technology landscape and our understanding of data science gave us the strength and confidence to build a solution that will simplify operations and help the business meet its KPIs through reliable data in real-time.

We've started Telmai with the sole motive to help Data Engineers and Data Architects reduce operational risk and business impact caused by the low quality of data.

Fun fact

The name Telmai is derived from

"Tell Me, AI​".

The Sigma(Σ) in our logo refers to the mathematical foundations in our approach to solving this problem.
