The Challenge

Traditional databases arrange data in rows, columns and tables. This limits the ability to see relationships between the data and gather meaningful insights.

Innovation Details

Unlike traditional databases, 7vortex has a flexible structure defined by interconnected relationships between knowledge records. These interactions help to create a more visual narrative that addresses the complexity of a system and helps to create a more integrative approach/strategy.

Biomimicry Story

Organisms within an ecosystem interact with one another in many different ways. These interactions play an important role in organism survival as well as the function of the ecosystem. Organisms can affect one another directly, through a shared resource, or indirectly. Some interactions are harmful to the organisms involved, whereas others provide benefits for one or both of the organisms.
