Visualizing complex election data in a meaningful way for millions of primetime viewers.
CNN is a global leader in news and heavily relies on information and technology for key differentiators. Election Night is when they’re running full throttle and they need a solution to handle a nation’s thirst for information. InterKnowlogy was approached to address this primetime problem. John King working tirelessly on the CNN Magic Wall for hours on end has become an Election Night staple for viewers over the years. Created by InterKnowlogy, the Magic Wall is a complex solution that relies on live data feeds from hundreds of services, aggregates that information, and then visualizes it. Allowing for seamless transitions from national data down to individual counties, the platform tracks results across the Nation and allows John King to explore scenarios to keep his audience informed and engaged. Today, the CNN Magic Wall, along with its host John King, are the Gold Standard for US elections reporting
Enabling researchers to detect COVID-19 from chest X-Rays with AI & Computer Vision technology.
Medical researchers at the James A. Haley Veteran’s Hospital were exploring solutions to improve diagnostic detection of COVID-19. We explored the potential and delivered a solution using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to improve diagnostic capabilities. Leveraging Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, the project demonstrates the potential of using AI in the diagnoses of COVID-19 and similar future health crises.
With physical showings no longer an option during the pandemic, a North American Commercial Real Estate Advisor needed to transform the way it shows properties to its clients. We needed to visualize multiple layers of data and enabled dynamic transitions from 2D map views to 3D models of buildings on those maps. Harnessing the proprietary information already being collected by the client, an Azure-powered Angular app integrating Mapbox and 3rd party information was created by //IK. Zooming into the map dynamically switches to 3D building visualizations rendered on the map, fully textured to show customers what the buildings look like in person.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.
Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the senior director at a medical diagnostics company. We produce testing materials for the Flu, COVID-19, and strep. We build instruments and have different ways of taking tests.
What challenge were you trying to address with InterKnowlogy?
We had an older analytics platform that aggregates test results from different instruments. We wanted to rewrite it to improve the performance capabilities and so we could scale with the cloud.
We’re also making our instruments into real IoT devices. We needed to manage these instruments and modify their properties.
What was the scope of their involvement?
InterKnowlogy helped from end-to-end to rewrite our analytics platform for scale. They also worked on the cloud backend to manage our IoT devices to set up new firmware files and support new tests. They’re involved in the spec building process to make sure we’re doing things in the best way.
What is the team composition?
We work with 3–8 people based on our needs.
How did you come to work with InterKnowlogy?
I’ve known InterKnowlogy for a while. Originally, we found them locally. We interviewed them and entrusted them with some smaller pieces of work. They proved themselves over and over again, so we kept giving them new projects.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent close to $5 million so far.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in January 2016, and our work is ongoing.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
InterKnowlogy was able to build an appropriate solution for us. Our analytics platform is the “proof in the pudding”; it’s been helping us scale up, and we haven’t had any significant issues. Their code has always been very reliable, and they’ve always been good about building tools out.
How did InterKnowlogy perform from a project management standpoint?
The team is highly communicative. We’re never surprised, which is a good thing. We always rely on InterKnowlogy to what they say they will. We manage all of the sprints out of Azure DevOps.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They’re always open and honest. They never overpromise and under-deliver. Our estimates are usually pretty accurate. The team has enough experience to make estimates, even if they’re not exactly sure what it is.
They’re not just coders, they’re also architects and designers. We know they can help us with anything. The people are also pleasant to work with, too. We like their culture.
Are there any areas they could improve?
We have a never-ending supply of work that we plan on continuing engaging them with, because they keep delivering. There’s only so much you can rely on with a smaller company.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
My advice is to leverage their experience. Listen to what they have to say.
