In a nutshell, GoodData is a business intelligence player focused on making dashboards and company data more accessible and actionable. The company was hatched in 2007, has garnered $75.5 million in total funding and plans to aggressively hire in Latin America.

Now with TOTVS embedding GoodData in its software the San Francisco-based startup is likely to gain a much larger international footprint. GoodData CEO Roman Stanek said in a blog post:

You may not have heard of TOTVS, but it’s huge. In fact, it’s Latin America’s biggest software house (and sixth largest worldwide) that just so happens to be looking for a way to give its customer base easy access to business intelligence. And that’s what brought GoodData to TOTVS’s attention: TOTVS will embed GoodData’s on-demand business intelligence service in its own software.
