Every number tells a story. Too bad we’re not listening.
For a number to be useful, we have to know what it’s about. All that’s in your database is “15.9”.
Truenumbers tell it all. Every data item is represented as a fact, that includes the whole story in a unique, structured natural language. It’s a live part of the data so analytics and machine learning can chew on meaning, not just values. Because there is no data model, object, relational or otherwise, data about anything - cars, metals, physics, biology or economics - can live in the same database by the trillions, in SQL, MongoDB or Accumulo.
Truenumbers are atomic. Because each truenumber fact is self-contained, it can move outside the database through your desktop or back-office processes, or live in spreadsheets and documents with full traceability - like a digital thread. Highly structured inside, truenumbers can be rendered as readable facts like you see above.
If every number knows its own story, the age-old question “what’s that number?” becomes extinct.
easily store, search and work with different kinds of data in one datastore
uses simple, natural data descriptions including units of measure and currencies
no restrictive schemas, models or ontologies to develop and maintain
easily develop new systems and processes yourself without systems programming
modernize existing processes and data incrementally
quickly make spreadsheet applications secure and traceable w/o disruptive and costly replacement
Truenumbers has already helped Government and Fortune 500 firms develop military sensor-based systems, track aircraft materials data, and make critical spreadsheets trustworthy. It's time you looked into Truenumbers.
For desktop solutions
A truenumber in Excel is a cloud-backed, secure fact that can't be tampered with or misunderstood. With Truenumbers, spreadsheets become enterprise class apps making costly replacement projects unnecessary. Easy to deploy and learn, you can begin reducing spreadsheet risks immediately.
"Any IT executive whose company uses spreadsheets prolifically should be looking at Truenumbers -- any industry — including education, financial services, government, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, and so on — can benefit from it."
-Marc Halpern (Gartner, "Cool Vendors 2014")
For system development
Truenumbers require no schemas or data models, yet are much higher fidelity. It makes systems easier to build, and more adaptive to changing requirements and data. It can scale from desktop to big-data clusters in the cloud using SQL, MongoDB or Accumulo for storage. Truenumbers accelerates development and maintenance of better and more capable systems.
