Enabling change with data

We bridge the digital divide between public and government data.

We empower you with insight.

Who We Are

Vizalytics Technology is a data company. We use open government data to provide on-the-go insight for local businesses, residents and government agencies. We continuously ingest dozens of data sets at the city, state and federal level to create our knowledge graph. The graph is multidimensional and updates in real time. Different users access different lenses on the graph. For local shopkeepers we have Mind My Business™, a mobile app. For residents, we have For government clients, we have Local Insight, a desktop dashboard. We love the complexity of the problems we deal with, from normalization issues, to what’s not in the data, to making it useful for different audiences.

What we do

We believe in the power of data to make a difference. Many main street business owners have been pressed to find time to invest in researching information pertinent to their business. We want to help these businesses have quicker access to information that has an economic impact. Much of the information that is being pushed out in open data sets is useful to businesses; It’s just not easily accessible for them. We see an opportunity to do more. Our users, our shopkeepers, thank us for giving them a heads up to what they didn’t know was possible to know. We put the information in the palm of their hands, without any effort on their part.

Why We Do It

We believe in the power of data to make a difference. The devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012 crippled several communities, affecting nearly 100,000 small businesses in NYC alone. We immediately saw a need for easier access to critical city-wide information and wanted to do something about it. Much of the information that is being pushed out in open data sets is useful to businesses, organizations, and governments alike; it is just not very accessible. We wanted to change that by building an ecosystem of data that puts the most relevant and actionable information in the palms of our users' hands when it matters most.
