• The Company

    Born and Built at Georgia Tech.

  • Our Story

    DecisionIQ was founded in late 2014 to commercialize the IIoT research of Dr. Nagi Gebraeel is a Georgia Power Associate Professor in the School of Industrial & Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. His research, which began in 2002 at Purdue University, is noteworthy on many levels, including the use of an equipment failure test lab and funding by a Career Grant from the National Science Foundation.
    In July-2015, Dr. Gebraeel joined with Co-Founder, Andrew Lewis, to start the commercialization work. DecisionIQ entered the Flashpoint accelerator in October-2015 and entered the market in June-2015. At Flashpoint, extensive customer discovery was essential to set the right feature set for the integration of this research into what is now called the Genesis IIoT Platform. In 2016 the Company was also a member of the Coca-Cola sponsored Bridge:ATLANTA innovation program. DecisionIQ's operations are at Georgia Tech's ATDC technology incubator, Tech Square, mid-town Atlanta.

    Our Customers

    Since entering the market, DecisionIQ has secured marquee customers from Coca-Cola to Southern Company. Our Genesis IIoT platform produces distinctly superior results. In fact, all our POCs have been recommended to deployment, with complete cost justification. Some examples of rave reviews from our customers...

    Commercializing University Research

    This research is based in the #1 rated Georgia Tech School of Industrial and Systems Engineering. Under the leadership of Dr. Nagi Gebraeel, the research has been underway for 15 years, 25 man-years of combined work. It is centered in four research areas, each bringing unique facets of real world application. It has been integrated into new platform, the Genesis IIoT.

    Analytics & Prognostics Laboratory

    A very unique aspect is the use of an equipment failure test lab, the Analytics and Prognostics Laboratory. It set the stage for using empirical methods to build a new generation of real world algorithms, developed with a systematic approach of measuring actual equipment failure and testing results against predictions. Funded by the National Science Foundation and major industrial partners ensures both real world and highly challenging problems and commensurate results.
