Cambridge Intelligence reaches the Killer50 list in two years

Cambridge Intelligence

The company, whose founder Joe Parry is a University of Cambridge alumni, has enjoyed successful growth since it was founded two years ago. CI has recently opened an office in the US city of Reno, Nevada, and grown its staff and client base. More importantly, its product, KeyLines, now rivals those offered by companies such as IBM and has won them important contracts in the cyber security and defence sectors.

KeyLines is a browser-based network visualization toolkit designed for law enforcement, fraud detection, counter terrorism, CRM, sales and social network data. It works on all types of devices such as tablets and smartphones, and its purpose is to uncover network structures behind an organization's data.

Joe Parry started the company in 2011, after resigning from his job as Head of Research for visual investigative analysis software company i2, now part of IBM, for which he worked for 13 years. Having read Mathematics in Bristol, he achieved a Distinction in Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge, where he then stayed on for a PhD in Cosmology and General Relativity. His studies ended with a Master’s degree in Computer Science at Imperial College London, after which Joe started his career as developer, technical architect and then researcher.

With his knowledge of the national security, policing and military intelligence market, Joe wanted to create a more modern visualisation platform than Analyst's Notebook desktop software – a system which could be deployed entirely in your browser.

After attending a couple of ideaSpace seminars on how to create a start-up, Joe joined the community and from then on, Cambridge Intelligence has grown to a point where it now counts six staff, a US office and some major clients and partners, such as the US Department of Defence and the UK’s Fraud Prevention Service, CIFAS.

Initially based at the Hauser Forum, the growing company has now moved to the new ideaSpace site in Miller’s Yard.
