Over the past decades, we have seen a new type of business emerge in the big data industry: DaaS companies. They operate as a SaaS company, but instead of offering Software as-a-Service, they offer Data-as-a-Service. Through online platforms and APIs, clients of DaaS companies can connect to data, query, and download the relevant parts to ingest the data into their pipelines and workflows. Examples include otonomo and INRIX that provide connected car location data for mobility, traffic, and transportation industries and Spire Global for maritime and aviation data.
