Visionary Leadership for a World of Possibilities

In today’s digital age, data is a critical asset for businesses. As a result, software companies that offer data management solutions have become increasingly important. These companies specialize in developing software tools and platforms that enable businesses to manage their data more efficiently, securely, and cost-effectively.


Aparavi Software AG is one such company that offers cloud-based data retention and management solutions. As the CEO of Aparavi Software, Gregor Bieler is leading the company towards change by emphasizing the importance of data management in today’s business landscape. And, under Bieler’s leadership, Aparavi has developed innovative data management solutions that enable businesses to take control of their data and improve their data management practices. These solutions are designed to be easy to use, scalable, and cost-effective, making them accessible to businesses of all sizes.

A Brief Intro on APARAVI

APARAVI is a Swiss company with over 80 employees from 15 nations, developing, operating, and selling its data intelligence and automation platform in Europe and the US. Its universal data platform simplifies data management through intelligent automation and helps companies and authorities discover the value and risks of their unstructured data, no matter where it’s located. APARAVI enables its customers to find, understand, and process their unstructured data efficiently in automated data lifecycle processes, ensuring cost savings, data breach prevention, CO2 footprint reduction, and data-driven decisions. Founded in 2016 by Adrian Knapp in Zug, Switzerland, APARAVI has offices in Munich, Germany, and Santa Monica, USA.


Whereas, APARAVI Europe was launched at the end of 2020 to help clients manage unstructured data growth and unlock its value. As the General Manager, Gregor Bieler built a team of 30 employees by the end of 2021 and launched a dedicated R&D center for the European market. Eventually, the Company contracted over 25 partners and acquired end customers from various industries. “Our platform scans, classifies, and automates unstructured data sets up to Petabyte volumes, delivering immediate return on investment”, shared – Gregor Bieler.

Leading with Vision, Driving with Purpose

APARAVI Europe’s mission is to help organizations achieve full transparency and control over their unstructured data, no matter where it is located. As the CEO of APARAVI Europe, Gregor Bieler leads a team that is dedicated to tackling the biggest challenge that companies face today – managing unstructured data. Unstructured data, which typically makes up 80% of a company’s data and has a much higher growth rate than structured data, can be difficult to manage without the right tools. That’s where APARAVI comes in.


With their AI-powered universal platform, APARAVI can search, find, and analyze more than 6,000 file types through connectors on file servers, cloud hyper scalers like Azure, and Sharepoint, among others. They can also classify with more than 200 standard sets, provide custom analysis through special queries and regular expressions, and allow movement and deletion of unstructured data. This automation helps APARAVI’s customers gain control over their cost-intensive data growth through one single platform.


What sets APARAVI apart is that they not only analyze metadata, but also the content of the files, which helps their clients gain deep insights, including identifying personal or sensitive data in photographs. This makes APARAVI’s platform unique in the data management industry. Finally, the “lean & clean data” can be handed over via APIs to hundreds of data analytics and processing tools, making APARAVI “everybody’s best friend” in the data analytics and management industry.


When we asked about APARAVI Europe’s recent achievements under Gregor Bieler’s capable leadership, the CEO himself shared – “For a UK construction company that suffered a ransomware attack affecting 1.8 million files and 1,200 employees, we were able to remedy the situation in a matter of days, identifying up to 30% of files with PII and avoiding 5-10x higher GDPR fines”. He added – “With APARAVI, businesses can have peace of mind and avoid the costly consequences of data breaches, all thanks to our AI-powered platform that can quickly search, localize, classify, and analyze compromised data, saving our clients significant time and costs”.

A Deep Dive into the Future

As global poly-crisis, fundamental shifts, and changing consumer behaviors drive the need for digitalization, the amount of data that organizations must manage and leverage will only continue to grow. The coming years will see significant advancements in cloud computing, data privacy and security, edge computing, AI adoption, and hybrid data management approaches, which will fundamentally transform the data management and storage industry.


APARAVI is already ahead of the curve, where a platform for the analysis and management of unstructured data has been in development for years and is poised to lead the industry into this new era. With more than 50% of their employees dedicated to R&D and development, the software giant has the brightest minds focused on meeting the challenges of the future. “By embracing these changes and investing in cutting-edge technology, we can help organizations efficiently manage their data and unlock its full potential for business success in the digital age”, concluded Mr. Bieler.

Plans Going Down the Lane

APARAVI is committed to continuously improving and expanding our services to better serve our clients. By the end of 2023, Mr. Bieler and his team plan to double the number of connectors to major cloud services, which currently include AWS, Azure, Sharepoint, and OneDrive. The company also understands the importance of user interaction and has implemented scenario-based scans and reporting, including data breach prevention and smart data migration, to enhance the user experience. And lastly, is also excited to announce that later this year, the APARAVI will be launching their AI modules, which will allow our customers to enter free text questions and requests, similar to ChatGPT, to trigger complex queries. With these advancements, Mr. Bieler and APARAVI Europe aim to further streamline and automate the data management process for all their clients.

On a Personal Level

He holds a degree in Law and Economics from Munich University, and has completed MBA Preparation Seminars at IMD University Lausanne.
