FinchDB is not just a database, not just an analytics engine and not just a search tool. It’s all three. All together. All in-memory. It’s a new, enabling platform technology built on an IP portfolio of 25 unique inventions, and suited for multiple high-volume, high-stakes use cases. While other big data solutions are answers-oriented, FinchDB enables users to ask better questions of their data. Because better questions must come before better answers.
