What We're About

At its core, OverlayAnalytics is about pulling on threads and—without knowing where they lead—figuring out how to connect them. Our customers come to us with a core belief that their data holds the answers to uncovering value in their business.

Our team is responsible for turning that belief into reality. If you believe in the transformational power of data and technology and in your own ability to bring that power to bear against complex problems, we want to meet you.

What We Do

OverlayAnalytics provides a strategic analytics platform that gives our clients a format-agnostic, streaming data pipeline that drives real-time data processing, transformation, analytics and actionable business intelligence.
