Compatio offers a knowledge commerce platform that changes the way products are sold. Unlike traditional e-commerce systems that focus on individual products, Compatio enables the discovery and purchase of products that go together to fulfill a custom requirement.

Compatio has developed a knowledge graph database, commerce plugins, and a multi-marketplace platform that are engineered to sell products that have complex relationships.


HiGeorge gives organizations access to the world’s public data via an application programming interface (API) or ready-to-use data visualizations, enabling them to access thousands of external data sources. Newsrooms looking to pull and display continuously updating data on COVID cases, for example, would not be able to do so without a data engineer. HiGeorge provides a pipeline configuration and visualization builder, sourced from any external public data source, that allows analysts without coding experience to create auto-updating visualizations or APIs.
