Making Big Data Better

At Veebit we are building game-changing products using advanced psychometrics
in conjunction with Big Data.

What does success look like? This question lives at the heart of Veebit’s purpose: to identify the traits and values of the individual that are likeliest to foster success, calibrated for specific real-word contexts.

Until now, predictive analytics have focused on data about who people are on the surface —how we act, who we know, what we engage with. By running this data through powerful analytics engines, connections emerge. For all they can tell us, deep insight into the intra-personal human factors affecting decisions and behaviors has remained elusive.

But what if we could dive deeper to understand actual relationships of cause and effect? Veebit uses the power of psychometrics to build new tools for uncovering how a person’s attitudes and aptitudes inform decisions and behaviors. The result is a new layer of insight that complements, and exponentially improves, the predictive power of big data analytics.
