The Challenge


Leading intelligence firm 14 North delivers vital geopolitical risk analysis to a growing global customer base and was seeking a solution that could enable their analysts – who have decades of intelligence and diplomatic experience – to apply their unique blend of insight, intuition, and experience with greater speed and confidence, and to a greater volume and variety of data.

Specialising in Sub-Saharan Africa, 14 North’s multinational experts provide critical insight to clients on one of the most complex regions in the world. In addition to dealing with fast-moving market dynamics, their team of world-leading analysts are contending with an information environment that's moving at unprecedented speed.  

The ability to effectively harness vast information sources – from both their internal repository of reports, as well as open-source data in multiple languages – is of paramount importance in delivering the highest quality of intelligence and ensuring signals buried deep in the noise are picked up ahead of more severe developments unfolding.  

Our Solution


14 North selected Adarga’s Vantage software to supercharge its team’s research capabilities.

Vantage has been built to augment human intelligence, enabling users to offload the cognitive burden of time-consuming tasks such as information collection and processing so they can focus on critical analysis. 

It enables analysts and planners to gain a rich picture of information from millions of sources in different languages and deliver dynamic insight and improved foresight to decision-makers. 

The 14 North team was quick to integrate Vantage into their existing workflows, supported by Adarga representatives who have been on hand to ensure that they're getting maximum value with minimum disruption from day one.  

The Results


“Adarga Vantage is a game-changer. It enables us to draw insights from our extensive repository of past on-the-ground reporting. We also use Vantage to securely fuse insights from past reports with emerging open-source data. It’s a powerful combination that saves us time, driving efficiency, productivity, and quality of outputs.” William Linder, CEO, 14 North. 

“We use Vantage to support most, if not all, of our analysis … We use the insights it generates as building blocks for our reports and as a means of determining the significance of specific information. This has increased our accuracy and saved us hours, most recently on a short-fuse requirement related to Burkina Faso.” Avery Warfield, Analyst, 14 North.
