CALIBRE Systems: Fulfilling Modern Big Data Needs

Joseph A. Martore, President & CEO
“When it comes to data, all of us feel like a little kid left alone in a candy store,” wrote Peter Drucker in 1969. Little did the late management guru know at the time that he was essentially predicting today’s ubiquity of data, and the ever-growing hunger of organizations pursuing streams of information from varied sources at unprecedented volumes and in unimaginable ways. Responding to a demand for greater agility, visibility, and value from existing data, CALIBRE Systems (CALIBRE) provides management consulting and information technology solutions that ensure their clients’successful convergence of business and IT.

CALIBRE’s data analytics solutions deliver unprecedented analytics, intelligence, and visualization results that provide clients with greater visibility, compelling ways to slice data, and ultimately faster decision making. CALIBRE leverages NoSQL, Big data, and graphs to speed up the entire data incubation-analysis-publishing cycle and reduce the costs involved, allowing their clients to focus on outcomes. The company has created a solution utilizing a cloud-enabled technology stack that leverages non-traditional database models, and next-generation visualization applications to replace mainframe-based data processing models. This capability reduces client operating costs, increases data velocity, and enables the organization to create faster decisions utilizing data they can understand with a click of the mouse.

Building on their expertise in data science and visualization, CALIBRE’s team has created solutions that generate metrics, identify inherent data relationships, and provide adequate data quality. During the early stages of the solution implementation process, the company re-engineers their clients’ legacy systems—that may not have represented multi-level hierarchies efficiently—and introduces NoSQL graphs to identify and correlate existing data points. The business rules applied to the historical data provide visibility into the multi-level hierarchies and effectively stores them within the graph. The NoSQL relationships combined with CALIBRE’s data science and visualization tools result in a powerful solution that helps their clients overcome their data management hurdles.

CALIBRE’s unique proposition lies in a eutectic mixture of technology and expertise, says President and CEO, Joseph A. Martore, CALIBRE Systems. “CALIBRE’s commitment to client success doesn’t stop at the delivery of the technical solution.

Our team works with clients to help them analyze and understand their data.” The high-touch interaction CALIBRE maintains with its client's results in a deep understanding of the evolving demands that enterprises have of their proprietary data.

CALIBRE is able to integrate their tools with their clients’ legacy systems through a developed cognizance of the fact that technology stacks entail significant investments, and cannot be all-out replaced with cloud and next-gen platforms at once. The key to CALIBRE’s success lies in their ability to drive innovation in the least complex, time-consuming, and cost-bearing manner as possible. This ability to tailor solutions and work in the seams plays a major role in CALIBRE’s aim to lead the mid-sized market by 2020, with an annual revenue of $350 million resulting from organic growth and strategic acquisitions.

Having already worked with the defense, federal civil and commercial sectors, the company now targets the intelligence community market with a new and improved set of IT, data visualization and analytics, enterprise content management, and cloud tools. A pivotal factor that drives innovation and client success for the organization is its work culture, outlines Martore, “CALIBRE is owned by its employees, and because our employee-owners share the benefits and rewards of creating client success, they strive to deliver enduring results. CALIBRE’s motto—“Our Success Follows Yours”—reflects the focus of our employees as they deliver solutions to our clients.”
