Infochimps Adds Enterprise Offering
Austin-based Infochimps, the DFJ Mercury-based big data startup headed by Joseph Kelly, said today that it has sharpened its offerings for enterprise customers. The firm said its Infochimps Platform for Enterprises brings the firm's infrastructure into a company's own data. The company said it would begin working with enterprise applications to apply its experience working with big data, to enhance those firms' own data with other data sources, gathered from across the web. Infochimps did not fully detail its new enterprise efforts, but it did say it will pull data from companies' existing legacy systems, scraped from the web, or other data sources to help firms extract information from those sources.
