Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted Government IT solutions provider, and IKANOW, the developer of Infinit.e, an open analytics platform, are partnering to bring IKANOW's Infinit.e knowledge discovery and data platform to the U.S. public sector market.

"IKANOW offers U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community analysts with a platform using cutting edge open source technologies to find what information is really important in the ever-growing ocean of data to take fast, effective action," said Chris Morgan, Chief Technology Officer, IKANOW. "We look forward to working with Carahsoft's open source and big data teams to expand our visibility in the government marketplace."

The solution leverages a massively scalable, cloud-based analytic platform architected for plug-and-play with additional data sources, extraction engines and visualization widgets to provide users with the flexibility to adapt the platform to any specific mission or domain.
"We are pleased to add IKANOW to our growing portfolio of Open Source solutions and to make the company's cloud-based analyst platform available to our government customers and reseller partners," said Natalie Gregory, sales director for Carahsoft's open source practice.
