In the years leading to Saratoga’s founding, Saratoga’s founders were each challenged by massive data volumes proliferating faster than hardware and software facilities designed to process the data. Having worked together over the past several decades, the Saratoga team united to solve the data expansion problem first for the semiconductor industry and then to broaden their solutions for all industries and applications.
