Material Sciences


Innovative materials play an essential role in energy, manufacturing, agriculture, consumer products, electronics and industrial productivity.

Developing new materials can be a lengthy, difficult process as researchers search for patterns in their large amounts of data related to a material’s structure and composition. Whether exploring oil and gas resources or developing stronger, lighter materials and sophisticated products, the possible research scenarios are nearly unlimited, and the challenges or sorting through an ever increasing set of data is overwhelming.

Anzo® solves that problem by making data readily accessible for exploration, discovery and analytics to researchers, data scientists and business analysts using industry-specific language and terminology.
