Technology Assessment forms part of Scianta Intelligence's Investor Services program. Paralleling our analysis for venture capitalists, our enterprise-focused technology assessment provides a detailed and in-depth appraisal of an organization's technology objectives, their current technology delivery and use capabilities, and a view of possible technology acquisitions both in terms of complementing their existing business as well market, risk, and management implications of a fusion with possible partners or acquisition targets.

Drawing on our experience as the founder, chief executive, and chief scientist of several software companies since the 1970's, as well as our extensive hands-on experience in designing, developing, and delivering advanced commercial systems in computational intelligence across a very wide spectrum of industries and applications we can provide the entire spectrum of corporate management (from project and department managers through senior executives) with both a broad perspective on technology issues as well as detailed analyses of particular technologies, competitors, and vendors.

From a more fundamental approach, we provide both public and private enterprises with a complete and thorough analysis of candidate technologies, vendors, and marketplace - including such critical factors as,

  • Patent search and trade-secret appraisals
  • Key technology assessment
  • Key individual interviews and assessment
  • Risk assessments – niche markets, technology competitive evaluation and window of opportunity
  • Product and vendor robustness and stability
  • Architecture and system objective analysis
  • Technology value propositions and return on investment
  • Ability to execute on technology tracks
  • Opportunity costs, risks, and windows for leveraging new and emerging technologies

For highly complex and evolutionary technologies as well as for situations requiring extreme care or risk management, Scianta Intelligence uses a Delphi approach to gain expert consensus on a broad range of factors (such as market forecasts, vendor and product viability, multi-faceted risk, capitalization needs for implementation and support.) A Delphi analysis involves a consortium of highly skilled and well qualified technologists and business executives whose expertise is brought to bear on evaluating technology, technologists, and the technology-driven marketplace.

FuzzySQL is a powerful extension to the Structured Query Language (the defacto standard for accessing and maintaining data within a relational database system – as well as many row and column-oriented non-relational systems such as spreadsheets and many flat files).


Port Operations

The model is built on a combination of queuing theory, high dimensional optimization techniques and many state of the art machine intelligence capabilities - such as fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms. A Port Operations Model is built on Scianta Intelligence’s knowledge-base framework and includes both a complete stochastic event simulation system and a multi-objective.


The Adaptive Intelligence Platform

Through its collection of Autonomous Component Managers (nodes in the peer-to-peer network), the Intelligence Platform creates a dynamic grid technology system supporting not only remote application execution and remote data collection, but also cooperative problem resolution through shared resources and shared solution processing.


Crew Scheduling

The crew scheduler is an integrated and coherent collection of Java J2EE classes consisting of a master plan compiler, resource managers, job managers, calendar generators, precedence solvers, bounded and unbounded schedulers, elastic and elastic constraint handlers, and a final ranked collection of solutions.
