ThoughtSpot is a search-engine based, business intelligence platform (pb). It was established in 2012 by Shashank Gupta, Ajeet Singh, Priyendra Deshwal, Sanjay Agrawal, Abhishek Rai, Amit Prakash, and Vijay Ganesan.

The platform is available both as installed software and a cloud-based platform, alongside additional support through a mobile application. The platform is intended for use by businesses who need to generate reports based on large amounts of data, ranging from those in the retail industry to government institutions.
