Build Status

Knowage is the full capabilities open source suite for modern business analytics
over traditional sources and big data systems. Its features, such as data
federation, mash-up, data/text mining and advanced data visualization, give
comprehensive support to rich and multi-source data analysis. The suite is
composed of several modules, each one conceived for a specific analytical
domain. They can be used individually as complete solution for a certain task,
or combined with one another to ensure full coverage of userโ€™ requirements.

This project is part of FIWARE. For more information

Context Processing, Analysis and Visualization.
