History

It started with a question. Is there a better way to analyze data? Our founders answered that question, but didn’t stop there. The innovative environment at North Carolina State University challenged these bold minds to keep questioning. What is the global potential for transforming data into intelligence? Who else might benefit from using our new technology? With the answers to these questions presenting limitless opportunities, our company was born. Explore each era of our history.
