Emerdata Limited. Emerdata Limited was established in August 2017, by many of the people involved in Cambridge Analytica. Emerdata was established in 2017 by the chief data officer and chairman of Cambridge Analytica's parent company SCL Group, which closed operations on 1 May 2018.
Cambridge Analytica, la società britannica di analisi dei dati al centro dello scandalo sull’uso non autorizzato dei dati di 87 milioni di utenti Facebook, sta chiudendo ma potrebbe riprendere le sue attività grazie a un’altra società parallela, Emerdata. Cambridge Analytica chiude i battenti.
Emerdata è una Private limited Company fino a ieri sconosciuta: nata il 31 agosto del 2017, fino a gennaio del 2018 è rimasta praticamente inattiva. È ubicata a Londra, al Pkf Littlejohn 1 Westferry Circus. La descrizione della sua attività è abbastanza eloquente: “Data processing, hosting and related activities”.
Emerdata has been paying SCL’s bills through its investigations and bankruptcy proceedings, FastCompany reported. The July report also noted that Emerdata purchased 100 percent of SCL Group’s share capital and had 89.5 percent ownership of Cambridge Analytica.
Per questo era necessario che Cambridge Analytica morisse e nascesse Emerdata, società che si occupa delle stesse attività, ha lo stesso management e gli stessi investitori dell'altra ed ha perfino la sede allo stesso indirizzo della precedente.

Emerdata was first discovered by independent journalist Wendy Siegelman, who covered the new company back in March in a detailed blog post on Medium. Siegelman told Newsweek that the SCL Group had a "very complex corporate structure that on many levels seems designed to be opaque and confusing."
Emerdata was founded in mid-2017, but has been rather active since Cambridge Analytica hit the headlines earlier this year, including official filings as recent as yesterday. So, it seems the shutdown may be less a business catastrophe than a marketing exercise. ®
Rebekah and Jennifer Mercer joined Emerdata on March 16, but it is shrouded in mystery. Alexander Nix, the suspended CEO of Cambridge Analytica, is also a director, as well as other executives from parent firm SCL Group.
