Joint Innovation

A product is a lot more than the sum of the product's components. At the heart of our TrendMiner DNA we acknowledge that a good solution is not built merely on the assumptions of our product team, nor on the almighty knowledge of our researchers.

Please read our JOINT INNOVATION program and tell us if you think we can make our product different by being different!

    M2IS as a product is successfully implemented at a first series of customers but proves to require too much customizations per installation.

    A product pivot is taken and the TrendMiner concept is born. TrendMiner has to bring the advanced search capabilities the process specialists do not have today in order to give the operators that advise in the future. 'Discovery Analytics' is the new path forward.
