GraphInsight Featured for Innovation

From the University of Trento, a VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership University Partner:

GraphInsight was recently featured in Corriere Innovazione, an insert of the first Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera which focuses on innovation.

A translation of the article follows.

Graphlnsight is a solution of Business Intelligence for Big Data, which reorganizes data networks and allows an intuitive interactive visualization in 3D.  GraphInsight has been awarded the People’s Choice Award in the international competition for new business ideas called the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Business Concept Challenge in Virginia. The team composed of two students of the Department of Economics and Management and one PhD student in Information and Communication Technology of the University of Trento convinced the audience with their innovative 3D visualization tool that enables analysts to obtain information more quickly and intuitively, enabling them to make more informed decisions and choices. Team Graphlnsight previously won the MIM Business Challenge (a local competition in Trento) and the InnovAction Lab sponsored by Trento RISE.
