In 2012 Babur Ozden and Donald Thompson started Maana with the vision to encode the world’s industrial expertise and data into new digital knowledge for millions of experts to make better and faster decisions, while operating the assets of the largest Global Fortune 500 companies.
With that vision Maana has pioneered the Maana Knowledge Platform™, a knowledge-centric technology that has been developed over the past 4 years, while solving the most complex operational challenges of Global Fortune 500 industrial companies. The Maana Knowledge Platform turns human expertise and data into digital knowledge for employees to make better and faster decisions.
