​​​Kogentix, a privately held startup based in Chicago, announced today a range of applications and solutions designed to help accelerate the business impact of big data for customers. Kogentix has been implementing advanced analytical solutions and providing services to Fortune 500 customers across industry vertical segments, including financial services, healthcare, retail, and consumer goods. Leveraging the insights and experience from the many engagements that the leadership team has successfully implemented, Kogentix is launching analytical applications that address the real-world business challenges for customers that want immediate value from Hadoop and Spark deployments. In addition to rapidly growing their capabilities to deliver applications and solutions, Kogentix has announced that Boyd Davis, a proven leader in the big data market, has joined the leadership team as Chief Executive Officer.

Kogentix service offerings include both assessment and implementation for platform deployment, data integration, and decision sciences.  The company’s model is to deliver solutions that generate rapid, practical results, built on an architectural foundation designed for future application growth.

Beta versions of the new applications will be made available first to existing services customers by the end of 2015.  They can be deployed on a customer’s Hadoop stack or run as a service in the cloud. The offerings include application operational intelligence to enable a broad range of packaged and customer applications, as well as a customer care analytics application and a device management and analytics application targeted at Internet of Things (IoT).

"In the last few years, we've seen a dramatic proliferation of breakthrough tools and technologies to manage and analyze data - Hadoop, Spark, and dozens of other open source projects are enabling innovation in customer service, operational efficiency, and even business models" said Boyd Davis, CEO of Kogentix. "Unfortunately, many companies still struggle to identify business value in big data, let alone find the skills to implement and integrate big data solutions. After spending several years driving platform technologies, I'm more optimistic than ever that Hadoop and related technologies will be transformative - but with applications, not raw technology. The leadership team at Kogentix has the vision, the experience, and the methodology to deliver custom and off the shelf applications for rapid big data results."
