Megaputer Intelligence, Inc., is a software company headquartered in Bloomington, Indiana, United States, that provides data and text mining tools along with consulting services. Megaputer was established in 1997 by Sergei Ananyan, Michael Kiselev, and Yuri Slynko. The name Megaputer is a play on the words mega and computer, as their software deals with large amounts of structured and unstructured (text) types of data, to provide companies with insights to make more qualified decisions.


In the beginning there was a research and development group in artificial intelligence at Moscow State University that came together to make advances in machine learning. They developed small, separate algorithms designed for specific analytical tasks such as modeling equity price changes, classifying heart diseases, and identifying products typically purchased in groups. They formed Megaputer Intelligence and came out with their first software version called PolyAnalyst that grouped these analytical tasks into one package.

Megaputer moved to Bloomington, Indiana, in 1996 and worked in close association with Indiana University, their first customer. Business interest grew in the United States to employ these various analytical programs to help with a range of tasks for various industries. Megaputer took advantage of this growing interest and grew their business and their capabilities as they worked with several different organizations within the marketing, manufacturing, health and pharmaceutical, insurance, and financial industries as well as government agencies (in that order of progression).


  • Megaputer was honored in 2015 Mira Awards for their service performance monitoring systems using text analytics, also known as Associate’s Performance Monitoring Solution (APMS).[1] The Mira Awards is administrated by the TechPoint, a non-profit organization based in Indianapolis, Indiana.
  • Megaputer was selected by Gartner as Cool Vendor in Information Infrastructure for EIM in 2010 Cool Vendors report.[2]



Their flagship software program performs analysis on both structured and unstructured forms of data.[3] The program is referred to as an end-to-end data processing tool in that it can load data from several different sources and take it all the way to reporting analytical results. The process details a cleansing and prepping stage which leads to analysis using machine learning and text analysis functions until the results are published on a web-based interactive interface. Or the results can be exported into formats for use in other programs.[4]

Annual Conference[edit]

Megaputer hosts an annual analytics conference for PolyAnalyst users and attendees that have an interest in data and text analytics. The event includes PolyAnalyst workshops that cover popular processes like entity extraction, building taxonomies, machine learning techniques, competitive intelligence and more. The audience demographics consist of professors, data scientist, managers, directors and c-level professionals. Most of the conference sessions speak to a variety of industries; however, the conference typically caters to specific industries with dedicated content, such as Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, and Insurance. Each day of the conference is also broken down into two tracks that enable business and technical attendees to vibe on topics geared toward his/her understanding of the analytics process. The conference is held in the fall and can span up to four days.[5]
