ThirdEye: Less Searching, More Finding

Big Data is impacting the bottom lines of the best businesses of today. While most companies produce information, turning this information into actionable knowledge is what drives long-term value. This is the problem that most companies fail to identify and get past. ThirdEye, a Santa Clara-based company solves this problem by leveraging artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data technologies to provide Data Sciences, Analytics, and Engineering Services.

Established in 2010, ThirdEye started when Big Data wasn’t much of buzzword at the time. The company was established by a Big Data pioneer Dj Das who believed that the world was ready for data-focused products and consulting services through Big Data and Data Sciences. At the time, there were very few companies that focused on Big Data and Das wanted ThirdEye to be the company that offers the full range of Big Data services and solutions at competitive rates.

Today, ThirdEye is one of the go-to names in the Big Data solutions space. The company in 2019 enjoys a great working relationship with the biggest organizations of the world including Microsoft, Apache Spark, AWS, Nokia, Symantec, Amgen, Getty Images and many more.

The Silicon valley-based company is also a great industry connector and accelerator that anticipates trends and pushes the envelope for constant innovation. The company has a big stake in the vital role Big Data plays in today’s world. One of the ways it does this is through running the “Big Data Cloud” meetup group. It is a not-for-profit-organization for evangelizing around Big Data and Cloud Technologies. This group has over 4400 members and holds meetups and annual events.

Big Data Consultancy

Knowledge is the new currency. Big Data is how the largest of the companies are getting a grip on the all-important data. This data is helping them propel themselves ahead of their competition. ThirdEye is the name behind these large multinationals because big data sets are hard to manage. The company helps its customers manage and process big data sets and also batch, real-time data sets.

ThirdEye doesn’t just look to solve the usual Volume, Velocity and Variety problem. It goes on to deliver Value too. Also, ThirdEye provides the customers with predictive analytics too so that these companies can stay on course and make great decisions and achieve proficiency in their processes. The Fortune 500 companies from across industries trust ThirdEye to realize their big data potential.

Recognized widely

ThirdEye is the one-stop-shop for many organizations’ Big Data requirements and all the excellent work they do seldom goes unnoticed. The company has been awarded and recognized by many publications. One of the most recognized ratings and review firms, Clutch has repeatedly highlighted ThirdEye’s work. Last year, ThirdEye was announced to be one of the top three big data analytics companies by Clutch. In 2019, Clutch has recognized ThirdEye as 2019 Top Analytics Company, and 2019 Top AI Company. ThirdEye’s Clutch profile has an outstanding rating which is at 4.7 stars out of the highest 5 stars.
