New York, New York, United States (Posted Jun 11 2014)
About the company
Transparensee is a small but profitable company which has never taken venture funding, and we are poised for substantial growth in 2014. We make a search platform product that simplifies adding powerful search functionality to existing structured data. Our core product, the Discovery Engine, is an in-memory index which specializes in understanding the relationships among objects in a data set across hundreds of metadata points. We can handle large volumes of rapidly changing structured, semi-structured, and free text data. Our mission is to help data owners maximize the value of their data by improving the ease of information access and insight.
