Ditto secures US$9mn in seed funding from True Ventures and Amity

Adam Fish of Ditto

Ditto, creators of critical software infrastructure that enables devices to synchronise data in real time even without internet connectivity, has announced it has won $9 million (€7.98 million) in seed funding from True Ventures and Amity Ventures.

This investment will help the rapidly-growing company expand upon its core technology that enables developers to build real-time mobile and IoT applications that work anywhere, with or without an internet connection.

Ditto empowers developers to build better or entirely new types of software applications. Its real-time database allows information to be stored and transmitted across multiple locations from different data centres all the way to edge devices in difficult-to-connect environments. For example, deskless workers can collaborate regardless of internet connectivity via local peer-to-peer connections across mobile devices. This enhances productivity and provides better security, resiliency and reduced latency.

Ditto’s groundbreaking technology has attracted leaders across many industries, including aviation, restaurant point-of-sale, defense, emergency work, retail, hospitality and entertainment, where seamless connectivity and real-time data sharing is essential. With a growing customer roster, the company has doubled in size in the past year with plans to continue changing the way companies connect, share and store data.

“Data is growing vast and more distributed than ever, and traditional client-server software architectures can no longer effectively support these changes,” says Adam Fish, CEO and co-founder of Ditto. “This is why we built novel data infrastructure that can run across mobile, web, IoT and server systems, and automatically sync data peer-to-peer. Ditto gives developers the capabilities to store and transmit data in real time from anywhere, which is necessary to support the security, resiliency and latency forces transforming software.”

“We have tens of thousands of fans entering the gates to watch the World Cup qualifying games,” says Alejandro Argumedo, CEO of HugoApp, a delivery app for goods, entertainment and services in Latin America and the Caribbean. “Any disruption to the ticket-scanning process upon entry could be chaos. With Ditto, we are protected. We have real-time, contactless ticket scanning regardless of internet connectivity, and we won’t lose the data needed to report on ticket sales and fulfilment.”

“Syncing data when internet connectivity is unreliable or unavailable is a growing problem,” says Om Malik of True Ventures. “This problem with real-time synchronisation inhibits an increasing number of new technologies from working properly. Ditto solves this with an elegant solution.”
