RippleNami Announces Debut of rWAVES™ Web Application Platform

Real-time, searchable visualization mapping platform enables better decision making

San Diego, CA (June 22, 2015) – RippleNami, the leader in collecting, organizing and visualizing global data, today announced the debut of rWAVES™. Designed to fundamentally change how customers interact with the world around them, rWAVES seamlessly integrates physical and digital information using maps to provide real time awareness, communication and operations anywhere around the globe.

“Our technology indexes, categorizes and connects information to a map that adds depth and meaning, fundamentally changing how data is used,” said Bill VanDeWeghe, president and CEO of RippleNami. “Users now have the ability to seamlessly aggregate data into a real-time, searchable visualization platform that enables better decision making not otherwise available on the market.”

It all starts with a map™

The global population now exceeds seven billion people and we know little about five billion of them. Mobile devices are now in use across the globe connecting people to each other and to information. “More than simply being connected to information, people and devices need to be connected to computing power. rWAVES solves the growing issue of transforming billions of bits of data from a wide variety of sources and formats into a single, easy to use visualization platform,” said Phil Gahn, co-founder of RippleNami. “Mobile devices and their users can finally transcend past limitations of processing, storage and location with our cloud-based application.”

With rWAVES, people can now collaborate in real time around the world with improved efficiency and accuracy of information.

Data for awareness, data for action™

RippleNami developed rWAVES specifically to meet the needs of organizations working in complex environments with very little relevant or recent information. More importantly, rWAVES intuitively converts a vast amount of unstructured data from the widest variety of sources into a user-friendly interface.

In addition to the nimble platform, rWAVES offers users an affordable option. rWAVES is built on a platform agnostic, cloud based system that alleviates the need for new hardware and the costs associated with hiring IT engineers or GIS specialists.

“Our customers are global with many working in extremely under-developed regions under adverse conditions, which means they need instant access to reliable information and the ability for anyone to retrieve the information.” Jaye Connolly-LaBelle, COO of RippleNami. “Our customers now have the ability to track and visualize global, regional and local events such as natural disasters, man-made disasters, logistics issues, and social media. The outcome is more informed, timely decisions concerning personnel, assets and resources.”
