Savvior and Citrine will be co-keynoting “The Compounding Challenge of Enterprise Visibility” at the Pittsburgh Technology Council “I Love it When You Call Me Big Data” event on January 24th, 2017 at the Marriott City Center.

Senior executives, Savvior Vice President Christopher R. Evans and Citrine Vice President Doug Ramsey, will be discussing how millions of dollars and countless hours of human capital are squandered each year because data is trapped in various, disparate silos, spreadsheets, and employees minds.Even the strongest companies risk being eclipsed by the competition, and delaying business-growing innovation when the left hand and right hand aren't aware of each other's efforts.

Savvior and Citrine have created two platforms, Savvior’s OmniView™ and Citrine’s Citrination™, which address Big Data challenges faced by large enterprises in separate, but incredibly powerful, complementary ways.

Enterprise visibility problems which have existed for decades are solved by organizing diverse data repositories and applying Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to turn data into decisions. 

Savvior's OmniView™ Framework is the first-and-only "Wikipedia for the Enterprise", resolving the enterprise-wide challenge of knowledge management across disparate corporate functions, from accounting to management to customer relations. OmniView™ builds bridges between teams, and teases out important insights and mission-critical intelligence to improve overall efficiency and competitiveness. 

Citrine's Citrination Enterprise Platform focuses on materials discovery, processing, and application for R&D, Design, and Manufacturing organizations.  The Citrination Platform hosts the world's largest repository of material properties and helps users organize and connect their proprietary data to this repository to speed time to discovery and collapse design and manufacturing challenges. 

In “The Compounding Challenge of Enterprise Visibility”, guests will learn how machine learning tools are leveraged to mine customer data, connect disparate teams and operations, to drive action and improve performance. Evans and Ramsey will showcase how it solves even the most complex challenges of knowledge management, and how they are working in global organizations. Learn more about the event, and plan to join us!
