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.
Our secret sauce is our patented Knowledge Graph™ — the invention at the core of the platform that combined with Maana’s algorithms, expedite extracting knowledge from data silos and information sources, to reveal their relationships in the context of optimizing assets and processes.
Our Global Fortune 500 customers, GE, Chevron, Maersk, Saudi Aramco and Shell are increasing profitability by accelerating digital transformation with digital knowledge. This digital knowledge enables employees to make thousands of decisions that optimize key assets and workflows, 3 to 10 times faster than alternative solutions.
Investors include Chevron Technology Ventures, Frost Data Capital, GE Ventures, Intel Capital, Saudi Aramco Energy Ventures, and Shell Technology Ventures. Maana is privately held with offices in Palo Alto, California, Bellevue, Washington and Houston, Texas. Visit us at http://www.maana.io/
