A number is useless if we don’t know what it means.  We could write its story in natural language, but that’s not well suited to computation.  Relational or object models are great for computers, but describe data with labels like fuelCapGal, that barely give us a clue.

Truenumbers® is different. It treats data as complete facts, written with a simple, structured subset of natural language that is both human and machine readable. Data and description become equal partners for query, analytics and machine learning.  There are no schemas to limit what data can be about, because facts can be about anything - cars, metals, physics, biology, economics - so new knowledge from any domain can be added on a continuous basis. 

Because each fact (called a truenumber) is self-contained, it can move outside the database through your desktop or back-office systems, code, spreadsheets and documents with full traceability and authority.

  • easily store, search and work with different kinds of data in one datastore

  • 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.

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.

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.
