Here is more from their website:
At IKANOW, we have created an environment that supports Open Analytics, a new process for enabling and deploying rapid innovation in the analytic market space. We start by providing a culture that supports the concept and by providing tools and techniques that enable innovation to occur on the edges of the technology; we believe this puts the power of true analytics in the hands of the people who require it, rather than relying on licensing models and proprietary interfaces or closed innovation, which ultimately prohibits overall innovation expansion.
Our team understands there is no out-of-the-box solution to satisfy all analytic needs, and a new way of thinking about the problem is needed. Unlike structured enterprise search, unstructured ‘Beyond Search’ analytics is research-driven intelligence based on unknowns. Agile Intelligence is an approach that addresses many of the analyst enablement impediments experienced today by incorporating Agile Scrum software development practices into the analytic domain.
Infinit.e is an open, easy to use, value driven product, which puts the power back into the hands of organizations that know their mission better than anyone else. Knowledge is everywhere and by creating pathways through frameworks and tools, we have created a community approach to analytics where ideas can be shared freely to support overall Mission Agility and Knowledge Sharing.
Infinit.e is a cloud-based analyst platform built from the ground up using open source technologies and architected for plug-and-play with additional data sources, extraction engines and visualization widgets providing our customers the flexibility, adaptability and enablement to achieve the Mission Agilityneeds for today’s complex intelligence environment.
Infinit.e Data Extraction Framework:
