About ActiveViam


ActiveViam provides a precision analytics platform to help organisations make better decisions, faster – whether those decisions relate to detecting deviations, measuring risk, responding to unplanned events, or selecting the best course of action after simulating alternatives.


We routinely deliver solutions that solve the most demanding problems for financial institutions in areas such as Front Office, Market/Credit Risk, and Liquidity Management, a.k.a. when big moving data meet with a requirement for complex calculations and flexible interactive analysis.


We do this by combining our unique technology expertise (in-memory database, data compression, multi-dimensional aggregation, parallel processing, data streaming, reactive dashboards) with specific domain knowledge to deliver beyond customer expectations.


Founded in 2005 and privately-owned, we have offices in New York, London, Paris, Singapore.
