What is Palantir Technologies (PLTR) and what do they do?

This will either intrigue you or get your tinfoil hat out. Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR) is an American software company that specialises in the development, build and deployment of platforms that allow deep data analysis.

Founded in 2003 by Peter Thiel, Nathan Gettings, Joe Lonsdale, Stephen Cohen and CEO Alex Karp, Palantir creates “products for human-driven analysis of real-world data” so “people and institutions today can still solve hard problems and change the world for the better.”

The Colorado based company’s technology played a crucial factor in the location of Osama bin Laden in 2011.

What is Palantir used for?

Palantir offers three main platforms which also serve as its main revenue streams: Gotham, Foundry and Apollo. What Palantir is used for depends on the client and which of these platforms they’re using.


Gotham is primarily used to process real-time information by the United States Intelligence Community including the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and Central Intelligence Agency. Gotham presents complex critical data in such a way that tough decisions can be made more easily. While Gotham has military applications, it is also used for law enforcement, disaster response and counter-terrorism.


Foundry is used by commercial clients such as Amazon (AMZN), Airbus, IBM (IBM) , Morgan Stanley (MS) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to build and deploy AI-powered decision-making applications. Foundry has also been used by NHS England to collect, process and visualise data to help manage and minimise the spread of Covid-19 in England.


Apollo is the system that helps manage Gotham and Foundry’s software. Cloud-agnostic, it operates in a single control layer to help coordinate the deployment of security updates, additional features and configurations. In short, Apollo keeps Gotham and Foundry running smoothly.
