Knights Analytics is a startup based in Utrecht. They specialize in simplifying the complexity involved in combining and utilizing various data sources. Their developed platform, Alchemia, is specifically designed to innovatively match and consolidate data, no matter how unstructured or contaminated the source data might be.
