Super graphics make sense of a sea of data - (BIS2)
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 16 Dec. 2010 ) Ever tried to make sense of a spreadsheet of numbers - data that in its raw form can be a sea of complexity?
Sure, a bar graph or pie chart can do for some statistics, but once you start getting two, three or more variables in the scheme of things, it becomes increasingly difficult to 'see' meaning.
Enter BIS2 (Business Intelligence Software Systems), a three year old Wellington-engined, with a USA front-office marketing and sales company, that ironically as yet has no New Zealand clients.
"We make super graphics," says BIS2 development team leader, Jeremy Banks. Kiwi founders, chief executive Mukesh Gordhan and chief technology officer Andrew Cardno are based in San Diego. "We provide visualisation tools that make it very easy to take the mass of your data and see what areas you need to look into."
For sticK – science, technology, innovation & commercialisation KNOWLEDGE - is a new Wellington based news service concentrating on following the money from ideas to income. Contact editor Peter Kerr at peter.kerr055 @ gmail.com
