Headquartered in San Diego, CA, Centigon Solution built its reputation as a premier developer of location intelligence solutions for SAP Business Objects, and has since expanded its offering to mobile analytics, and custom business apps. Their widely adopted location intelligence integration for dashboards allows customers to take existing dashboards and inject interactive geographic visualizations as a native part of the analytics application. “We have worked hard to dramatically simplify the creation and integration of mapping visualizations, but more importantly align the technology to the most common business cases for using the technology,” says Evan DeLodder, CTO, Centigon Solutions. “With CMaps Analytics we set out to use consumer friendly map experiences as a foundation to create powerful enterprise analytics, with the flexibility to do so with or without the aid of a GIS professional” he adds.
Working with a worldwide implementation partner network, Centigon Solutions’ products are benefitting many clients across the globe. Consider the example of a NY based grocery delivery and Logistics Company.
“In the early days, we were perceived as going against the grain by using cloud, consumer mapping technology. Now, partners like Google and TomTom have become powerful cloudbased map foundations for us to layer our own visualization and analysis layers, or GIS powered layers. This is one of the factors that differentiate us from the rest,” says Goodman. With an emphasis on cloud and mobile, Centigon Solutions is helping customers rapidly deploy location intelligence without any additional infrastructure. The company is also investing heavily on tying the geographic analysis to the indoor space. “We want customers to start with a geographic view and drill inside of brick and mortar locations while still having a bird’s eye view of the business’s performance,” says Goodman.

Going forward, the company is focused on a cloud-based designer for embedded analytics, indoor visualization, and the continuation of plug-in location intelligence solutions to platforms like SAP Business Objects and Salesforce.com. Centigon aims to enable businesses to create location intelligence solutions across the entire enterprise by focusing on a broader set of business consumers and focusing on improving user adoption.
