Ardoq, a software-as-a-service firm helping businesses centralize the sprawling data produced by different internal systems, has raised $125 million in a Series D funding round.
Founded in 2013, Ardoq has emerged from the fast-growing Norwegian tech ecosystem, which advisory firm GP Bullhound estimates has witnessed a boom in funding over the past few years.
The firm works in endpoints architecture, the name given to tools designed to help businesses make their disparate internal systems work together more harmoniously.
For example, using an Ardoq plug-in, a client could extract data from an old payroll system and combine it with information from its replacement, creating a comprehensive and more easy-to-navigate database. Ardoq can also be used to check a given system’s security protocols are up to spec, and legally compliant.
Ardoq’s clients include Carlsberg, Condé Nast, and the US Federal Communications Commission. The firm’s latest round of funding saw the company win the support of EQT Growth, alongside London-based growth investor One Peak, and Norwegian VC firm Firda.
“We are in the perfect position to supercharge our global expansion in 2022 and beyond,” said cofounder and CEO Erik Bakstad, adding that the startup planned to make new hires and shore up its tech with the new funding.
