The DataSwarm Analytic Engine (DAE) uses advanced analytics to create highly valuable intelligence across all areas of the value chain, across many sectors. Core technologies include dynamic algorithms and machine learning, language processing and high speed data analytics.
The system was originally designed to solve the problem of finding and sequencing trends and memes quickly and efficiently. It was built to process vast quantities of data, and integrate social media, other media, internal enterprise and "Internet of Things" datastreams. It has proved very flexible and has been used for applications from front end customer insight to back end customer satisfcation, from influencer identification to election prediction.
The DAE is format independent, and so can work in most languages (human or machine).
We provide standard datafeeds on areas specified by the client. The system provides the client with a suite of search and basic analysis toolsets based on client requirements.
We provide datafeeds tailored to specialised requirements, where we create bespoke additional analysis.
Reports and Updates
We supply reports and updates, with frequency and content defined by the client. These can be of standard system output or bespoke analytics.
We use our system's analysis to aid in solving client issues. We also advise on what data analytics a client should build.
