The Software Report acknowledges top CEOs in a variety of industries who demonstrate that with strong, innovative leadership, the best software solutions thrive and are rapidly adopted across the global economy. 2022’s awardees were selected based on thousands of nominations from colleagues, peers, and other software industry professionals and in-house industry research.

Ahana brings together decades of cloud, open source, database and distributed systems experience to be the only commercial company focused on PrestoDB, the project hosted by the Linux Foundation’s Presto Foundation. Presto is the de-facto open source distributed SQL query engine for data analytics and for the open Data Lakehouse.

with $32 million in capital raised to date.
“Since founding Ahana, with my talented team I’ve been focused on building a company that brings the reliability and performance of the data warehouse together with the flexibility and better price performance of the open data lake, enabling SQL and ML/AI use cases on data to engineers and data science teams,” said Mih. “We’re excited about making distributed compute infrastructure as easy as B2C SaaS applications enabling our users to deliver data-driven insights on large amounts of data.”
