Where did the name Emcien come from?
The name “Emcien” comes from the combinatorial formula mCn that computes the number of ways you can choose “n” items from a set of “m” items, which can only be done by using the existing patterns.
How did Emcien get started?
Dr. Roy Marsten was a professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology when he was approached by a leading company to solve the critical business decisions of identifying the most popular choice combinations and trends in sales transactions. The company also told Dr. Marsten that the tools should be easy to use and fast to implement. “We are facing a new generation of employees who want intuitive, easy-to-use software that gives them consistent and sound actionable results,” a company representative said.
In 2002, Dr. Marsten founded Emcien and set about designing intelligent pattern-based analytics that reveal customer buying patterns and trends. From the start, the mission has been to help companies move beyond tedious data-mining and brute force database queries with a suite of pattern-based analytics applications that automatically convert complex data into actionable intelligence.
Today, Emcien offers a suite of analytics applications that reveal patterns and relevant connections in data streams and converts them into strategies designed to maximize profit. This break-through innovation has eliminated the need for tedious querying of data, search-based methods and long implementation cycles.
