Our Story

Consilience was born out of the realization that working with data was often like “running with a parachute attached”.  After spending repeated time and effort working through compliance requests by piecing together siloed, incomplete and fragmented data, Amit figured there had to be a better way.  He reached out to Tyler who did some informal market-research with his clients and suddenly it was clear that there was a real need for a solution.  Along with Viral, who had considerable experience and resources in the software development, they started Consilience.

Consilience’s product PRISM is now used in the telecom and the financial sector making the data to decision process much more seamless.

“Our platform brings different data sources into one central hub that provides valuable insights and risk management tools to businesses. We are giving our users a way to look at data like they never have before.
