About LogTrust

LogTrust is a company founded in 2011 in Madrid and specialised in Big Data Analytics. The company has developed a cloud-based solution that provides greater speed and scale and reduces the operational costs of Big Data analysis, while providing companies with access to real-time data collection, analysis and visualisation tools.

It is an easy-to-use Big Data analytics platform that requires no development and operations resources to maintain. The speed of real-time and historical data analysis remains completely constant, regardless of the consumption rate or the amount of data collected.

The main applications of this platform are security, behavioural analysis to discover trends and optimisation of resources. In addition, LogTrust facilitates system and business monitoring to ensure availability, regulatory compliance and, ultimately, BigData analysis to find hidden insights.

LogTrust Corporate Finance Analysis

Although LogTrust still has negative results, due to the large investment effort needed to develop its technology and grow in the market, the company is on a revenue growth trend and is becoming increasingly profitable.

In addition, LogTrust has received numerous awards, such as the "Best Spanish Startup" award and the "Best Cloud Transformations Methods" award at ExpoCloud 2015, as well as recognition from Gartner as a "Cool Vendor" in 2016.

Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
