Graph analytics at work: finding needles in a needle stack

YarcData Solutions

Many Big Data problems are about searching for things you know that you want to find. It's challenging because the volumes of data make it like searching for a needle in a haystack. But that’s easy because a needle and a piece of hay, though similar, do not look exactly alike.

However, discovery problems are about finding what you don't know. Imagine trying to find a needle in a stack of needles. That's even harder. How can you find the right needle if you don't know what it looks like? How can you discover something new if you don't know what you're looking for?

In order to find the unknown, you often have to know the right question to ask. It takes time and effort to ask every question and you keep learning as you continue to ask questions. The Urika™ platform for real-time data discovery dramatically shortens this cycle. In the same amount of time it took you to ask one question, we enable you to ask a thousand questions, making it more likely that you'll discover the answer that gives you a "Urika" moment - and helps you gain competitive advantage.

Urika specializes in discovering the unknown, the unpredicted - and the completely unexpected. Learn how customers spanning government, financial services and healthcare organizations are able to find needles in needle stacks that change the balance in their favor.
