About the Mutual Fund Information project:
“Recognos continues to raise the bar for its technology capabilities, for its innovative thoughts, for its attention to detail, and certainly for its client support. Recognos employees are hard working, intelligent and dedicated who go above and beyond at every opportunity. What Recognos might lack in experience they make up in research, passion and a desire to learn.
Recognos doesn’t just look at their efforts as temporary, they engage themselves fully, not only meeting expectations but exceeding them on a regular basis. My involvement with Recognos in both enjoyable and educational and for both I am appreciative” (Ira Cohen, January 2014).

The Recognos Smart Data Platform:
“The implementation of the Recognos Smart Data Platform solution with the Open Society Archives (OSA) at the Central European University and the Roma Initiatives Office (RIO) at the Open Society Foundations, allowed us to extract valuable data buried in the documents from our archive. This project was a continuation of the OSA efforts to digitize our Roma archive, and to create a meaningful database by combining the data extracted from the unstructured documents and the data in our structured databases. We consider this an important step towards implementing data analytics processes that will identify the most efficient ways to maximize the impact of the Foundations’ projects in the target communities. The solution was a result of the fruitful cooperation between our team and the Recognos data analysts, software engineers and semantic experts. We hope to extend this solution and continue using it in our efforts to preserve the legacy of the foundations’ work.” Kinga Rethy, Acting Director, RIO.
