ABOUT SavantX

Customer-focused, Purpose built Technology; No Silicon Valley Groupthink

About Us

We wanted to unlock the potential from data within any organization, so the SavantX geeks set out to transform the way organizations can search data. All too often, a data search is limited by the type, skill of the person searching, and many other factors. We set out to change that. Now, regardless of skill, anyone can search data to extract true meaning from data. The Visual Insights provided through the HYPENAV feature offer the opportunity to see the ‘big picture’ and then encourages discovery by revealing hidden relationships that bring meaning to the data.

SavantX is an augmented intelligence tool that ALWAYS keeps the human in the loop. Users don’t need to be a data scientist to use this innovative Advanced Data Analytics Toolkit. The user-friendly, straightforward interface allows data to be easily searched, accessible, and understandable. The team behind SavantX prides themselves for bringing the consumer search to the enterprise. Named as a Gartner Cool Vendor in Natural Language Processing (NLP) for 2018, SavantX uses analytics to bring order and understanding to all types of data.

HISTORY

Established in 2015, SavantX was born with one problem in mind: Bringing the “consumer” search experience to the enterprise.

SavantX’s lineage includes open source intelligence gathering tools for the Defense Intelligence Agency. So, the base technology was an obvious fit to help nuclear power stations swimming in unstructured data locked away in many structured databases quickly find what they needed to safely, efficiently and effectively operate. The development of the SavantX Toolkit to what it is today spans a number of years across numerous successful pilots within a variety of industry applications.

Mission

The mission of SavantX is to make data accessible and understandable through smart search, augmented intelligence, and data visualization.

Founders

SavantX was founded in 2015 by Ed Heinbockel and David Ostby. Ed and David have been working together building applications to solve real-world problems in business, the FBI, the Department of Defense, and the Intelligence Community since the 1990’s. Precursor technology to SavantX was successfully deployed at the Defense Intelligence Agency for several years. After using vast quantities of nuclear station data to build an optimized Data Analytics Toolkit, patents were filed, and the Company’s core offering is now available through a variety of services.
