Mobile Agent Technologies ( www.agentos.net) is an early stage start-up offering an integrated platform for decision automation- Einstein Enterprise. This combines and integrates various technologies typically sold separately, like business rules and analytics, and is intended as a horizontal product for the automation and management of decisions.
Einstein Enterprise is Java-based and combines open source and proprietary components and a couple of the key pieces are either patented (cloud computing) or closely held as trade secrets such as Common Sense Reasoning™. The product supports:
- Cloud computing
It runs on any of the machines a company has (the internal cloud, not the amazon/google cloud)
- Business rules
- Data mining and predictive analytics
- Complex Event Processing
- Content Management System
- Relational Database
The product is new and the company has a small number of Fortune 500 customers evaluating and developing with the product. Uses range across the decision management market from marketing and customer acquisition, such as a product recommendation engine, to underwriting, medical diagnosis and treatment and fleet logistics. The 1.0 product is not yet aimed at pure business users (in terms of rules or data mining) but it is already beyond the geeks-only level and the team is working on developing the kind of business user friendly interfaces needed.
I have not had a chance to look at it in detail but it sounds like a really interesting pure-play decision management platform and I look forward to seeing more of it in the future.
