Datameer is currently used by more 130 companies including Sears, Visa and British Telecom. The platform represents part of the evolving revolution in next generation business intelligence marked by increasingly advanced data visualization options, the ability to handle large, unstructured data sets and utilization of machine-based learning to simplify and streamline the user’s experience with the data in question.
