We joined in Knowledgent’s first ever Tekathon – an immersive education session bringing together Knowledgent Informationists and Big Data vendors. It was a great opportunity to discuss Big Data real-world use cases with folks who are as committed to customer success as we are. After introductions, we got into the nuts and bolts of exactly how Novetta Entity Analytics finds the dots and connects them so enterprises can realize the promise of their Hadoop investment. We also dug into details around features that differentiate Novetta Entity Analytics: enterprise performance and rapid scalability, built-in intelligence, relationship identification, and flexibility. Showing Novetta Entity Analytics in action is a powerful thing – so we ended our session with a demo showcasing how we address security threat assessment, advanced customer 360 analysis, and fraud detection issues within an enterprise. Thanks to Knowledgent for the great discussion, ideas and interactions. The recap below was originally published here on their blog.

Industry demands that vendors come up with solutions that eliminate redundant and duplicate tools. Capabilities for data stewardship and governance, including data profiling, data quality management, workflow management, security, transparency in matching logic, data visualization and manipulation, dashboards, and reporting are no longer “good-to-have,” but rather are a basic need.
