Leni is a virtual analyst that allows users to conversationally access information and insights.
The company says with growing dependence on data, global enterprises need to have access to data discovery, agile analytics, and ability to process large datasets. Lymbyc’s expertise in these spheres will enhance LTI’s Mosaic platform to provide differentiated analytics solutions in a SaaS model.
