Infoloom provides a combination of consulting services and application development for connecting vast corpora of complex knowledge in ways that are optimized for ease of use.

Information is what it is, not necessarily what we want it to be. A bottom-up approach, resulting in highly customized views, is a key factor to success in the field of information management. It is more manageable, extensible, and affordable than a traditional approach based on top-down pre-requisite agreements, and it makes it easier to maintain applications over the long term.

Machines will never replace human beings. We, humans, need to make machines work our way and not the reverse. Infoloom's activities focus on the challenging and ever-changing task of finding the right balance between human expertise and automatic processing.
