KXEN keeps on going ...

That's the predictive analytics & data mining company (Knowledge Extraction Engines), not the radio station!

Last I checked, they have about 40 employees and just US $5M in revenue.

But Forrester ranked them as a leader, like SAS, they leverage PhDs in Mathematics and they have a business model that I have always liked and watched from afar in that they work with software vendors and SIs to embed their technology.

Instead of the SAS large implementation model where you have to hire PhDs to use the software, KXEN allows you to put predictions and data mining in your application, hiding the implementation details.

OK, that's it. I just wanted to say something nice about the little company that sounds like a radio station.

Back to Project Portfolio Management BI next time ... Best, Mark
