Big Data Analytics
I founded Abundent to address the ever increasing gap between software innovation and software adoption around the globe. The software world today is split between the have's and the have not's, with the have's comprising a very small fraction of the total population. SMEs have lagged considerably behind in their adoption of modern reactive and scalable software architectures, NoSQL/NewSQL databases, and AI/Machine Learning to improve operational efficiency and customer engagement.
Our goal at Abundent is to fill in this gap and allow SMEs to enter Industry 4.0 alongside their much larger and well-funded peers, employing open-source technologies as much as possible and following the key principles of simplicity, decentralization, and empathy.
