Data Startup Cinchapi Announces New Features to its Data Platform

Cinchapi Data Platform adds Workflow Automation, Insight Detection, and Recommended Searches; Cinchapi will be a featured Startup at the Collision Conference in New Orleans.

ATLANTA, GA. May 1, 2017 – Fresh on the heels of winning the Atlanta Startup Battle, data startup Cinchapi today announced the addition of a new set of features to the Cinchapi Data Platform (CDP). Building on the company’s core mission of providing computing without complexity, today’s release offers data analysts, data scientists, and business leaders additional capabilities to make working with decentralized real-time data more efficient and intuitive.

Additionally, the company will be showcasing the new features as well as the full capabilities of the platform at the Collision Conference in New Orleans this week. Cinchapi has been selected as one of 66 startups to be a part of the Collision Pitch Competition, with the first round occurring on May 2nd. The firm will also be demonstrating the CDP in the startup hall on May 3rd.

The new features in this build of the Cinchapi Data Platform include:

  • Recommended Searches – The CDP recommends searches based on real-time changes in the connected data sources to ensure that users can easily discover new insights when they’re available.
  • Insight Detection – The CDP runs automated analysis across every aspect of the connected data sources to detect and curate the most important traits.
  • Workflow Automation – The CDP allows users to easily automate complex workflows in response to changes in the underlying data set. For example, a utility company can automatically dispatch a repair crew when the data suggests a meter will become faulty.

These new features add to the compelling value proposition of the platform. By combining machine learning with human intelligence, the Cinchapi Data Platform simplifies the work and enhances the capabilities of data professionals seeking to explore and discover insights within any real-time or conventional data source – including IoT generated data.

“When we released the initial iteration of the CDP, we delivered a solution which simplified the process of data prep and exploration across disparate data sets,” said Jeff Nelson, Founder and CEO of Cinchapi. “Still, we knew that there was room for improvement. The addition of these new features will enhance the discovery of new insights across decentralized data sources, as well as powering complex enterprise automation workflows. Our team looks forward to showcasing these new capabilities at the Collision Conference in New Orleans next week.”

The CDP uses machine learning to be able to interpret and understand any data in any format. Machine learning also makes quick work of data prep and cleanup, so analysts, scientists, and business leaders can explore real-time and conventional data with ad-hoc, context-aware and conversational questions in just a few minutes. Additionally, the machine learning works to automatically uncover otherwise hidden patterns, anomalies, and relationships which may exist across disconnected data sources. Once discovered, the platform can function like a “DVR for Data” allowing users to rewind time to see how these hidden connections were created and how they evolved over time.

Asking questions is the first step in the CDP’s Ask, See, and Act workflow. The platform’s contextual natural language interface allows users to ask questions of the data with common English words and phrases – there is no need to use a cryptic query language in an effort to “solve for x”. Next, the CDP’s analytic engine lets users see the results via vivid visualizations alongside easily understood text-based responses. Lastly, users of the platform can act in a number of compelling ways. These include the ability to quickly identify interesting data which warrants further investigation by a human, it can generate code snippets for use in data-driven applications, and, as part of the newly announced features, the CDP can now trigger or dynamically modify enterprise automation workflows.

Data Startup Cinchapi Wins Atlanta Startup Battle

Cinchapi Data Platform makes working with data more intuitive and efficient; VC judges award $100,000 investment prize

ATLANTA, GA. April 14, 2017 – Data startup Cinchapi was named the winner of the second Atlanta Startup Battle pitch competition, held last night at Tech Square Labs in Midtown Atlanta. Cinchapi bested four other startups finalists culled from nearly 400 applicant companies.  With its winning pitch, Cinchapi’s founder and CEO, Jeff Nelson explained how the Cinchapi Data Platform makes the preparation and exploration of data far more intuitive and efficient than previously possible.

The Atlanta Startup Battle judging panel, comprised of current venture capitalists from Silicon Valley and Atlanta, apparently was impressed by how the platform combines machine learning with human intelligence to radically reduce data prep, and to expose patterns, anomalies, and relationships which warrant further investigation.

“I’m honored that the judges understood Cinchapi’s vision of using a combination of human and machine intelligence to deliver real-time analytics.” said Nelson after Cinchapi’s victory was announced. “And I’m super excited to have Paul Judge and Allen Nance on board as advisors and investors. Working with them will help the Cinchapi team scale our business over the next few months.”

Nelson’s winning pitch focused on the Cinchapi Data Platform (CDP) and it’s Ask, See, and Act workflow. In an effort to make data conversational, the platform’s context-aware, natural language interface allows users to ask questions with common English words and phrases. The CDP’s analytic engine lets users see the results via vivid visualizations alongside easily understood text-based responses. Lastly, users of the platform can act by triggering enterprise automation workflows, generating code snippets for use in data-driven applications, or they can quickly identify interesting data which warrants additional investigation by a human.

Indeed, it was the human element that stuck out to investor Allen Nance, one of the founders of Tech Square Labs, and the Atlanta Startup Battle. “We’re living in a world with more data, and the interaction data is more and more complex, “ Nance said from the rooftop of Tech Square Lab where the winner was announced. “Cinchapi is trying to make it human again.”

The Cinchapi Data Platform uses machine learning to radically reduce data prep and cleanup, as well as to uncover hidden patterns, anomalies, or relationships across decentralized or disparate real-time data sources. Once discovered, the platform can function like a “DVR for Data” allowing users to rewind time to see how these hidden connections were created and how they evolved over time.
