Sysomos Inc. is a Toronto-based social media analytics company.

The company’s flagship product, Media Analysis Platform (MAP), mines and analyzes content from social media or user-generated content to create a picture of media coverage.[1][2][3]


Sysomos was founded by Nilesh Bansal [4] and Nick Koudas. The company is a spinoff of the University of Toronto research project BlogScope. The BlogScope project, which started in 2005, resulted in creation of the underlying content aggregation and analysis engine commercialized by Sysomos. The company raised venture capital in 2008 and was acquired by Marketwire in 2010.

Sysomos launched its flagship offering MAP in Sept 2007, followed by addition of Heartbeat to its product suite in 2009. In addition to the two main products, the company released FourWhere, a free location-based social search service that mashes up Foursquare in March 2010.[5]

In February 2015, Marketwired split from Sysomos and appointed a new CEO, Adnan Ahmed. [9]

In March 2015, newly independent Sysomos launched a redesign for its Heartbeat product and a new API for its MAP product. [10]
