Advanced Analytics

Technology has provided organizations with access to huge volumes of information, such as documents, databases, email repositories, images, multimedia files, and geospatial data. It would be impossible for a human to sift through this information for important and relevant facts without being overwhelmed. As the volume and variety of information has grown through the years, various technologies have developed to help with managing information overload. From our inception, MSI has worked with tools and technologies that address many different aspects of the information overload problem.

 

Advanced Analytics encompasses the architecture and implementation of solutions that aid in the discovery, organization, and analysis of complex volumes of data. Discovery consists of using search engines, categorization tools, and information extraction to sort through raw data. Organization provides users a way to access and track information and to control access and sharing. Finally, analysis and visualization provides users with ways of organizing data that reveals relationships and patterns that might otherwise go undetected.
