Overview:ThinkData sets the gold standard for data. Their platform, Namara, is a standard gateway for organizations to connect to high-value public data. Important data was being released by every level of government, but in non-standard formats that were hard to access and virtually unusable. A Toronto-based company established in 2014, ThinkData Works, Inc. was founded as a central point of access for this data.
Since its founding, ThinkData’s offering has expanded to include the fastest, most intelligent, and most scalable tools, as well as the largest repository of open, public, and partner data.
ThinkData offers solutions for every stage of the data lifecycle. Using an ETL tool that has been trained on 250,000 datasets, data is streamed in from any open and public portals, bringing sources on as quickly as they’re discovered. Automated QA and detailed monitoring significantly increase confidence in the data, allowing users to get insight into the health, size, and shape of data across versions. To blend and enrich data, a graphical transformation engine and a robust, scalable entity resolution tool serve to create ideal schemas and promote consistency among data points. Finally, for integration, ThinkData offers an API with SQL-like language for querying, as well as integrations with the most common libraries and IDEs, so that users can plug live data into any solution.
ThinkData means more data with less overhead – one platform to access, share, enhance, and integrate data from anywhere.
