About our Company

Software & Services for Critical Thinking.

We are a cognitive computing company focused on improving human judgement in the decision making process. Through our critical thinking, SaaS applications, we illustrate outcomes to shape decisions. When you visualize outcomes first, you get the opportunity to think what you can do differently now to improve the outcome. To strengthen your decision-making, your advisory and your stakeholder communications. Foresight is a better alternative to hindsight.

Our applications connect changing risk and opportunity indicators to current and future performance. Through outcome analytics and cause-and-effect dashboards. All in context to a stakeholder’s perspective. The foundation of our applications is our PaaS-based, Cognitive Operating System which synthesizes and processes multiple risks and opportunity indicators that you’d attempt to structure, organize and process repeatedly in your mind.

Together, our software complements human judgement with a thinking architecture to provide a clearer picture of current and future exposure to risks and opportunities for each stakeholder.

We work with analysts and decisions makers. Whether they are part of an investment team, a management consulting team or a business management team so they can gain a competitive advantage in thinking and collaboration.

We’re focused on the evolution of intellectual work. And here to shape critical thinking in business, in life and the securities market.

Here's how we help companies manage their business uncertainties.
