Lynx Analytics is a global pioneer of big data and graph analytics solutions.
Lynx’s business-to-business services run the gamut, from data analysis and insights to execution based on those insights. Where it differentiates from other big data analytics companies is in using graph theory and a proprietary graph engine in order to process and analyze data from various sources.
Lynx is working mainly with telecommunications and financial services companies, and that focus has allowed it to test and develop its technology at a demanding scale.
Lynx Analytics announced in May 2016 that it has secured a first investment of just under USD 10 million from a strategic investor. This investment values Lynx at USD 66 million, which qualifies as one of the highest first-round valuations for Singapore-based technology startups.
