Company information

Enterprise applications are still dominated by line-of-business systems like ERPs, CRMs, SCMs, and HRMs. These systems contain siloed data and isolated functionalities unable to communicate with one another. For years, companies have invested in developing automations and applications to connect siloed systems and improve critical business processes. Progress has been slow and piecemeal.

Tektonic AI aims to supplant this tangled software ecosystem by creating an enterprise semantic layer, underpinned by large language models, that sits atop core systems and makes data and functions interoperable. The vision is to enable the rapid development of intelligent apps by providing intuitive, semantic access to enterprise data, workflows, and processes. The mission is to reshape enterprise software architecture and become the standard for the next generation of AI-first enterprise applications and automations.
