“I am very proud of our team, and this extended run of patent success is proof of how forward-thinking we are as a company,” said Cognitive CEO, Mac Dougherty in reference to the recent granting of patents 6, 7, and 8 for the company (US 9,063,754, US 9,110,826, and US 9,141,131). “Building off of our early work in parallel processing and data-centric computing, we’ve been able to blaze new trails in performance optimization that will help our customers deal with the overwhelming amount of data their enterprises create every day. It is a very exciting time to be part of Cognitive.”
Inspired by Mac’s quote – and, perhaps, the local filming of Ghostbusters 3 – VP of Business Development, Chuck Toye, added this thought from Dr. Peter Venkman.
Cognitive runs Big Data analytics 100x faster. Its next generation “Smart Memory” technology accelerates applications like Hadoop MapReduce, Spark, and Graph Search without requiring code changes of the user. In fact, Smart Memory also unlocks existing batch-code to run, unchanged, on streams of data. With applications in IT security, oil & gas, media, healthcare, defense, and financial services, Cognitive allows customers to interact with business-critical data in real time.
