DMX - The Context Machine is your perfect tool for authoring, structuring and exploring networked information.

Based on a powerful associative database you can create Topicmaps and populate them with Topics. Topics represent individual items which can be related through Associations.

DMX comes with a number of predefined Topictypes like Person and Organisation. You can easily add additional Topictypes according to your domain and connect your Topics with meaningful Associations.

To explore and visualize your data you can use the powerful out-of-the-box DMX Interfaces.

Berlin Hyp, one of Germany's leading real estate financers, did just that - using DMX in their core Digital Transformation project. Read more about the project...

Others - like TAZ - created own individual views on their data. Explore below how they created a content-rich application based on DMX.

Creating content-rich applications

Combining the power of the Context Machine with modern web technologies leads to amazing websites like the award-winning Migration Control. TAZ journalists researched public data on money flows from the EU to African countries over several years. They uncovered that the money -  camouflaged as development aid - was used to stop migration from Africa to Europe.

The user-interface the TAZ team used to collect the data is a simple Google spreadsheet. From here data is imported to DMX where all the semantic associations are set. What was at first a confusing amount of data only making sense to a few experts become accessible to a larger audience. Read more about this DMX project ...

A free and open source software platform

Humans are known to have amazing cognitive capabilities - but there are hardly any digital tools that focus on supporting these.

While "artifical intelligence" (AI) is taking off we focus and combine our strengths to develop a collaborative knowledge management platform which can facilitate human intelligence.

DMX is free and open source software. Visit to explore the code. If you want to contribute please contact us.
