Crisis Anticipation

Complexity technology establishes a radically innovative means of anticipating crises. Systems under severe stress or on a path to collapse undergo either rapid complexity fluctuations or exhibit a consistent growth of complexity. If complexity is not measured, these precious  crisis precursors will go unnoticed. Conventional methods are unable to identify such precursors.

How does complexity-based crisis anticipation work? You simply measure and track business complexity (yours or of your clients), and look out for any sudden changes or even slow but consistent drifts. This technique provides the basis for a rational and holistic crisis-anticipation system for decision-makers, investors, managers, and policy-makers. Essentially, the system buys you time, the most precious resource you have.

Our complexity-based crisis anticipation functions in real-time and may be applied to:
  • Corporations
  • Banks (in this case we indicate clients who may be defaulting)
  • Asset portfolios
  • Customer-retention
  • Process plants
  • Traffic systems
  • IT systems

Be warned of problems before it is too late.

Established originally in 2005 in the USA, Ontonix is a technology company headquartered in Como, Italy. The unusual technology and solutions developed by Ontonix focus on countering what most threatens safety, advanced products, critical infrastructures, or IT network security - the rapid growth of complexity. In 2007 the company received recognition by being selected as Gartner's Cool Vendor. What makes Ontonix different from all those companies and research centers who claim to manage complexity is that we have a complexity metric. This means that we MEASURE complexity. We detect anomalies in complex defense systems without using Machine Learning for one very good reason: our clients don’t have the luxury of multiple examples of failures necessary to teach software to recognize them. We identify anomalies without having seen them before. Sometimes, you must get it right the first and only time!
