LiveTiles announced today that it will establish an Intelligent Innovation Centre in Sligo to support the further development of its design and artificial intelligence (AI) products.
The project is supported by the Irish Government through Industrial Development Agency (IDA) Ireland, with LiveTiles planning to create up to 50 jobs. This includes a number of key roles such as AI developers, marketing, management, presales and a new product solutions team that will create industry-specific digital platforms that incorporate AI.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in New York, LiveTiles is a Microsoft partner that is defining the market for the Intelligent Experience Platform (IXP) – with no code, ‘drag and drop’ technology giving business users the tools to create easily adoptable dashboards, portals or corporate intranets that can be heightened with personalized artificial intelligence and analytics features.
LiveTiles began as an Australian startup company in 2014 and has expanded rapidly, with a customer list spanning all major verticals and some of the biggest organisations in the world such as PepsiCo and the US Department of Defence.
Speaking at today's announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys said, "I warmly welcome this announcement by LiveTiles to establish their new Intelligent Innovation Centre in Sligo, creating 50 quality jobs initially. This wonderful regional investment is a great vote of confidence in Sligo and the North West region. I have no doubt that the company will thrive and prosper here in Ireland, aided in no small way by our rich talent pool. I wish them well for the future."
LiveTiles Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Karl Redenbach added, "This is a wonderful opportunity, and we’re really excited to establish a new centre in Sligo. There is an up-and-coming technology scene here, and we look forward to working with technology businesses, universities and Microsoft in Ireland to expand our AI agenda."
