Cambridge Intelligence has created competing technology to Wall Street giant, IBM with a new visualisation platform.Cambridge software specialist, Joe Parry spent 12 years at i2 before its acquisition by IBM and has enjoyed brisk progress since founding Cambridge Intelligence last May – the first customer was signed up in October and the inaugural product launched just before Christmas. He says the current product could be adapted for a fresh market segment (visualising time information) and a new product launched later in 2012 – possibly as early as this summer.
One of the first customers is a major software corporation and early adoption by US and European clients suggests an increasingly international footprint. Parry is shortly to engage with his first UK customer. The first product, KeyLines, is a flexible network visualisation toolkit designed for law enforcement, fraud detection, counter terrorism, CRM, sales and social network data. Its purpose is to uncover network structures behind an organisation’s data.
