A Team on a Mission

As a company comprised of business leaders and technology innovators we can’t ignore the fact that as data volumes are exploding, organizations are becoming strapped by the costs of continually adding resources to process this data in the cloud rather than fully tapping into resources they already have.

This is what inspired us to create Kazuhm — software designed to enable powerful distributed compute capability and to optimize any organization’s compute resources, whatever or wherever they may be.

Our Team

Kazuhm is a company built by engineers for engineers with the challenges of today’s geographically and technologically diverse organizations in mind.

 We understand the challenges of managing an IT infrastructure that meets the sometimes competing needs of multiple users and teams, securely, on time, and within budget.  We see the skyrocketing costs of managing data in the cloud and the lack of enterprise-grade choices for managing data and workflows without the public cloud.  The Kazuhm platform is the incarnation of all the “wishes” from our corporate IT experiences brought to life and delivered to users across sectors to address their most pressing concerns.
