Bangalore, August 21 2019 - EagleView, a technology leader in data analytics derived from aerial imagery and computer vision, has opened its new international office here. On hand to celebrate the inauguration were EagleView leadership as well as Robert F. Smith, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Vista Equity Partners and EagleView’s primary investor.
A native of India, Rishi Daga, CEO of EagleView, ran his first steel factory at the age of 17. Daga was one of the first employees at EagleView and helped lead the company’s growth and innovation through the sales and marketing track for 10 years until he was promoted to CEO in 2016.
"EagleView's market-leading technology continues to define what's possible in artificial intelligence, high-resolution imagery, and data analytics," said Robert Smith "As EagleView brings new meaning to 'Big Data' and digital transformation, I am thrilled to see the company continue to grow, innovate, and expand its talent footprint here in India and beyond."
Headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, United States, EagleView utilizes proprietary high-resolution aerial imagery - with patented fixed-wing and drone capture technology – combined with the application of computer vision and machine learning feature set extraction for on-demand analytics and insights serving the roofing, insurance, government, and energy sectors. EagleView’s products have modernized workflows across industries, whether by supporting first responders in the aftermath of a natural disaster or helping insurers make faster, safer, and more accurate remote property assessments.
“EagleView has always had a culture of delivering innovation through the hustle, hard work, and raw potential of our people and we view Bangalore as a catalyst for this continued innovation," said Daga. "We are excited to establish our largest R&D center to further expand our capabilities in the areas of cloud services, computer vision, machine learning, and aerial imagery in Bengaluru."
Located within Bangalore's Pritech Park special economic zone (SEZ), EagleView India’s new office joins the company's existing locations in Bellevue, Washington, Rochester, New York, and Perth, Australia. EagleView plans to create 500 new jobs in Bangalore within the next year, where teams will be charged with researching and developing new products.
