About Onna

    At Onna, we believe that fragmented, unstructured, and siloed data not only creates difficulty in managing it, but also hinders its ability to bring true business value. With Onna, legal, business, and IT leaders across organizations can swiftly and effortlessly uncover the complete story of their data, putting the power of the information in the hands of those who need it most.

    Our vision

    Today, knowledge workers collaborate, communicate, and share content through a collection of tools that are growing faster than ever. As the digital workplace rapidly evolves, data proliferates, content sprawls, and knowledge becomes fragmented.

    Our goal is to create a more flexible and equitable way of working by shaping and rethinking the way businesses use data. We aim to simplify how organizations access, manage, and use their data to unlock new opportunities for growth and innovation.
