CARY, NC--(Marketwired - March 20, 2014) - Saffron Technology, a cognitive systems company helping Fortune1000 businesses understand the value of transforming disconnected data into actionable knowledge, today announced that it has closed a $7 million Series B investment round. Funds are earmarked to accelerate business growth, including opening new global headquarters in Silicon Valley.
"Data becomes infinitely more powerful when you tie together its meaning from a multiplicity of disparate sources. Our patented Natural Intelligence Platform unifies all kinds of data -- structured and unstructured -- in real time, from a large variety of sources and continuously learns about the things in the data without the need for pre-determined rules or models," said Gayle Sheppard, Saffron Technology CEO. "Now you can automatically see converging and other patterns to anticipate outcomes and prepare to act. These capabilities, combined with our customers' success with Saffron, position us well for growth. With this additional funding, we will expand customer-centric next generation service teams, build a strong brand presence, create scalability across our business, and establish a Silicon Valley headquarters in spring 2014."
In development since 1999, Saffron Technology's patented associative memory finds connections among data across diverse sources, without the need for rules or modeling, while learning incrementally and anticipating outcomes based on patterns it finds in the data. Saffron Natural Intelligence helps clients rapidly inform decisions and reduce unnecessary risk and waste, making it ideal for real-time operational risk intelligence and decision support; for industries including manufacturing, retail, defense, and healthcare. In a data-driven environment, Saffron helps enterprises make more informed decisions, resulting in increases in productivity and reductions in costs.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
