The Silicon Review
With data growing enormously every day, there is a constant need of workforce that can effectively manage data and draw conclusions from it. In the wake of such growing need of Data Analytics experts, GNosis was formed in 2013. The higher meaning of GNosis is knowledge from experience.GNosis' vision is nothing less than "realizing the full potential of Big Data" by ubiquitous access to Big Data for discovery and predictive analysis and to drive a new era of efficiency in what it does.
GNosis is a focused and dedicated team working on Big Data solutions. The team worked together previously at BeansFactory, building up the Cloud infrastructure for their customer Savvis (now CenturyLink). The company is headquartered in Singapore and has offices in Chicago, Malaysia, and Shanghai.
