Business Intelligence & Analytics


Easy to use, powerful analytics

Most BI&A solutions require you to seek a difficult compromise between cost, complexity, confidentiality and power. The Mind in a Box™ solution can reside onsite to keep your data secure, while requiring minimal infrastructure and maintenance. It packs plenty of power in a small, energy efficient package. And it is very easy to configure and adapt to your requirements, either with our help or directly through our user friendly, web based user interfaces.


Mind in a Box™ leverages the power of world grade BI&A Open Source software stacks

The appliance integrates powerful Open Source components such as Elastic, Splunk, and Apache Spark.


Operational monitoring with Elastic

The Elastic stack is built around Elasticsearch, a search engine based on Lucene. It provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with an HTTP web interface and schema-free JSON documents. 
Elasticsearch is the most popular enterprise search engine [...] based on Lucene.


Infrastructure monitoring with Splunk

Splunk captures, indexes, and correlates real-time data in a searchable repository from which it can generate graphs, reports, alerts, dashboards, and visualizations.
Splunk's mission is to make machine data accessible across an organization. 


High performance processing with Spark

Apache Spark is an open-source cluster-computing framework.
Spark facilitates the implementation of both iterative algorithms, that visit their data set multiple times in a loop, and interactive / exploratory data analysis, i.e., the repeated database-style querying of data.


Mind in a Block™

An appliance solution for a complete blockchain and offchain infrastructure, Mind in a Block™ (M/BK) is a specialized version of Mind in a Box™ and works very well with it. It proposes blockchain Open Source components and platforms, and a novel approach on smart contracts.

Our blockchain expertise

The Mind in a Block™ team has proven and recognized expertise regarding Blockchain infrastructure and applications. It partners with major actors in the blockchain ecosystem. Gowling WLG invited Dr Jean-François Rotgé to participate to its Montréal Blockchain seminar. 

A complete blockchain proposition
Our appliance can work as a high performance node or as a service provider.
