VRVis spin-off Visplore makes complex data understandable for everyone
Press release: Viennese start-up Visplore enables intuitive analysis of Big Data for Industry 4.0 as well as the energy industry.
As an expert in the visualization of big data, Vienna's COMET Competence Center VRVis has been a leading technology driver for domestic industry and business for many years. The spin-off Visplore, founded out of VRVis, now specifically offers low-threshold access to Big Data thanks to an all-round software solution for analyzing time series data.
Simple tool for complex data
Data is considered an important resource because it holds valuable information about all aspects of our world. Particularly in the industrial and energy sectors, large amounts of data are generated from machines, sensors and simulations, often exceeding the capacities of previously used programs. For these data volumes, people need visual analysis solutions that facilitate access to the data as a valuable entry aid. This is exactly where Visplore comes in, offering a tool which goes by the same name that makes complex time series data understandable even for citizen data scientists through visual and analytical translation. "Visplore enables users in a very low-threshold way to get faster and deeper into the essence of their data by offering preconfigured and ready-to-use analysis interfaces," explains Harald Piringer, CEO of Visplore. "We put the human user at the center. Our software is an easy-to-use tool that gives specialists without a data science background intuitive access to new insights from their data."
These days, Visplore is closing a €1 million funding round with btov, the renowned European venture capitalist considered an expert in startups in the technology sector. A basic version of the software is available free of charge on the Visplore website www.visplore.com, including several application examples, for example a corona use case. It is intended to enable SMEs to get started with professional data analysis. Already, 20 companies are using Visplore.
COMET program is incubator for marketable solutions
The Visplore spin-off emerged from many years of research work, including work with large measurement and simulation data, at the VRVis research center funded under the FFG's COMET program. COMET represents an innovative and internationally recognized research framework that promotes the important transfer of know-how from science to industry.
"As a visual computing competence center, we translate the latest scientific findings into application-oriented solutions for our corporate partners in order to strengthen their competitiveness through a technological edge," says Managing Director Gerd Hesina. "Visplore is a prime example of how results from our cutting-edge research around visual analytics are translated into a marketable product and a competitive company that has international customers."
