Knoema Enterprise[edit]

Knoema Enterprise is a solution for individual groups and organizations to provide custom data, dashboards, and visualizations using data aggregation, search, machine learning, automation, and cutting-edge web and software engineering tools[3]. Company data is integrated into a curated list of relevant global datasets, and then Knoema economists create functional models and visualizations. The custom data portal is built to provide the exact functionality to meet team needs and enable ongoing, strategic, data-driven decision making.

Projects[edit]

The company has collaborated with the Zambian Central Statistical Office to create the Zambia Data Portal [4] and the Nigeria Information Highway to create the Nigeria Data Portal. [5] The company also worked with the European Commission Joint Research Centre and the African Development Bank to explore ways for collection and distributing quality food price data in Africa.[6]
