This resulted in Sputniq, a flexible and extendable software solution for data exploration, data analytics, visual data authoring and knowledge sharing.

Sputniq allows customers to tap into and smoothly interact with all of their graph data. It enables customers to turn raw data into valuable knowledge and make better business decisions by offering precise, contextually rich information, by highlighting patterns, and by showing relations between different pieces of information.

Sputniq – an integral part of metaphactory

Through the VISmart acquisition and the transfer of intellectual property of Sputniq and Ontodia, metaphacts is strategically expanding its metaphactory platform with innovative data exploration, data analytics, data authoring and knowledge sharing functionalities. metaphacts and VISmart customers will benefit from an enhanced portfolio for creating and managing knowledge graphs.

"Sputniq delivers ground-breaking innovations in the area of graph data exploration, visualization and authoring. It has been fully integrated into the metaphactory knowledge graph platform as of the 3.0 release. We are excited about the opportunity to shape the Sputniq component to meet our customers’ demands and offer it as an integral part of the platform. We are happy to have the VISmart team join forces with metaphacts and drive our solutions further", commented Dr. Peter Haase, CEO at metaphacts.

Customers interested in learning more about Sputniq can access the demo available on Wikidata or use the metaphactory offering on AWS Marketplace to test Sputniq with their own data. metaphactory on AWS Marketplace is available for a free 14-day trial.

VISmart team joins metaphacts

In July 2019, the VISmart team was merged into metaphacts. Yury Emelyanov, CEO of VISmart, and Dmitry Pavlov, CFO of VISmart, have joined the board of directors at metaphacts.

"We have been collaborating successfully with metaphacts over the last few years and we are excited to have become a part of the team. This new setup allows us to better serve our customers worldwide and drive new solutions for knowledge graph management and rapid application development", commented Yury and Dmitry in a joint statement.
