|import.io – Award winning big data Platform|
import.io is shacking up Big Data by turning the rapidly increasing amount of data on the web into usable data for their customers. import.io automates content scraping, which is currently used in a limited fashion because of the complexity of the always changing websites.
In order to use content scraping on such sites the need to continuously manually update the scraping algorithms arises making such a process unattractive. Using import.io allows an easy set up and the software automatically adapts to changes on the target websites, effectively turning the web in one giant useable database.
The entrepreneurs have built the technology in a previous company, where the initial contacts with Wellington Partners were laid and when they exited that venture and then bought the specific technology out of that company, Wellington was a natural place for them to turn to.
