Civis Analytics was born out of the Obama 2012 campaign headquarters in a monitor-filled back room known affectionately as "The Cave" -- a group of scientists and engineers that used data to change the way modern political campaigns are run.
Backed by Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, they built on that success and formed a company that aimed to do the same thing for businesses and non-profits, namely to provide comprehensive technology for data science that would truly reveal what an organization's data was saying. And so, over the course of the past two years, nearly 100 Civis data scientists and engineers have been hand-building an easy-to-use data science platform that's fast and powerful enough to rise to the occasion - making it possible for any organization, big or small, to take control of its data and put it to work.
Faced with an abundance of data, many organizations struggle to leverage it. With Civis, these organizations can now easily unify their data, learn from it, build predictive models off it, and leverage it into truly data-driven decisions.Dan Wagner, Founder and CEO of Civis Analytics
