Consulting firm Control Risks has invested in Geospark Analytics and spun off its online monitoring platform to establish a new entity that will combine technology offerings of the two companies.
Seerist, the new entity formed out of the partnership, will offer an artificial intelligence-based analytics product designed to help government and corporate organizations gain insight into potential events that could have an impact on operations, the company said Tuesday.
Jim Brooks, former chief operations officer of Control Risks, will lead the combined global organization as CEO and John Goolgasian, former president of Geospark Analytics, will serve as chief product and innovation officer.
Eddie Everett, who previously led products and partnerships at Control Risks, will be chief growth officer.
The new platform includes Geospark’s Hyperion technology, which was built to automate risk monitoring, forecasting and alerting processes.
