Knexsy (Knowledge Extraction Systems) is a privately owned company based in Dublin, Ireland. We are a subsidary of Intelligent Health Systems Ltd. and have spun out of the data services division where we were primarily involved with analyzing biomedical signals and other data streams. It seemed like a logical move, as we had built up several years experience analyzing data and our director in a former life worked for many years as an internet consultant with some of Irelands leading websites and telcos (Vodafone, O2, Ireland.com, Independent Newspapers - unison.ie ), and has been involved in web scraping, data extraction, information extraction, over the past 14 years. We were getting more and more requests to do projects that were not related to our original work in IHS so it made sense to spin out a subsidary to focus totally on data extraction and analysis as it relates to internet and network traffic.
Our competition in this area can be categorized into 2 main groups:
Generally difficult to customise except for all but the most straightforward of tasks
Require familiarisation with HTML/TCP
Companies offering outsourcing:
The majority of companies that carry out work in this area then to be based in India, China, Hong Kong and the USA. This can cause difficulties when communicating with the customer on requirements.
We are easy to talk to and can discuss projects without obligation, often providing sample outputs to the customers specification as proof of concept.
We're a small organisation and we share our offices and admin staff with our parent company. This allows us to keep overheads low, resulting in more competitive pricing for our customers.
