Stradigi reached out to me and I added them to the vendor dataset. They create AI/ML solutions.  Their philosophy is to put AI into the hands of more people and across more departments – think how people use Excel or Word today – the goal is to have a tool powered by AI / ML that is easy enough for Business Users (and technical people) as well if they want to create more Use Cases or test / simulate AI projects faster or have a way to include Business Users in the process to gain more value.
