Who is Thetus and what do we do?
Founded in 2003, Thetus is an enterprise modeling and analysis software company based in Portland, OR. We design software to help people research, document, visualize and model complex systems. Thetus empowers data-rich enterprises to better utilize the knowledge that drives important decisions across a broad range of markets, including defense and intelligence, energy, law enforcement, and environmental services.
Savanna, our model-driven analysis solution, lets users contextualize complex and ever-changing problems. For example, when considering the concept of wealth and how it motivates or influences certain populations, the definition of wealth and how it’s measured changes radically depending on the context. The magic of Savanna is in defining models that address what’s relevant to the problem at any given point.
So what’s the big deal about models? Humans naturally create models to make sense of the world around them. Models let us handle complexity, answer questions that are important to us and decide what action to take. Because Savanna is built on our modeling platform, Thetus Publisher, users can harness that natural human ability to create models to not only understand a problem but also to track when and why those understandings have changed over time. Users can then trace the path that led to decisions and make the necessary changes as problems shift and evolve.
In a nutshell, Savanna enables faster, more informed decision-making by allowing users to frame their understandings within a certain context. In addition to its unique, model-driven architecture, Savanna offers powerful search, discovery and visualization tools, all within an intuitive, browser-based user interface.
