Novetta Entity Analytics offers many flexible deployment and analysis options that make it easy for organizations to get started combining and analyzing several different data sources and entity types. Below are more details about some of the flexible options Novetta Entity Analytics delivers.
1) Leverages Hadoop On Premise or In The Cloud
Novetta Entity Analytics gives customers a choice of deploying on premise or in the cloud on Cloudera, Hortonworks, or Pivotal Hadoop distributions. Hadoop is a great choice for quickly, easily and cost effectively building data lakes for large-scale data analytics. Unlike data warehouses and other proprietary systems that require expensive upfront commitments to specialized hardware and software, Hadoop environments can start small and easily expand as data requirements grow. In addition, Hadoop provides Novetta customers with many open source data ingestion and analysis tools and a reliable infrastructure for storing and processing data.
2) Easy Deployment Without Disrupting Operational Systems
When deploying Novetta Entity Analytics, organizations don’t have to take operational or transactional systems offline, modify systems, change business processes or rework data flows. Proprietary connectors aren’t required to access data housed in source systems or repositories: users simply make a copy of the operational or transactional data and import it into Hadoop using Sqoop or Flume. Once the data is in a Hadoop data lake, Novetta Entity Analytics can easily access it, combine it with other data sources, and perform entity resolution and relationship analysis on the combined data.
3) Support For Most Data Sources, Entity Types
Novetta Entity Analytics resolves a range of real-world entity types from structured, unstructured and semi-structured data sources. Entities include people, organizations, locations, events or anything else that can be described by data attributes. This breadth of support for entities and data sources means organizations can deploy Novetta Entity Analytics for an initial project while ensuring the software will also support projects across different workflows, departments and use cases.
4) Easy to Use For Novices and Experts
Novetta Entity Analytics is designed for users of all skill levels and for a vast array of projects, from sales and marketing campaign analysis to fraud detection and security threat assessment. The software can be configured to provide secure access to different data views based on business requirements, workflows and job titles. The easy-to-use configuration console, automated best practices, and built-in intelligence make it easy for users to build integrated views of people, organizations, and locations across multiple data sets. In just a few minutes, users can easily inspect and modify matching criteria, quickly create sample data sets, review and adjust thresholds to allow more or less data to be grouped into each entity, resolve entities, and view results as well as underlying records.
5) Empowers a Broad Range of Analytics Applications
Novetta Entity Analytics creates a multidimensional index of resolved entity and relationship data that can be added to a broad range of applications or accessed as a web service. Applications such as data warehouses, enterprise search, link analysis visualization, online transaction processing (OLTP), and online analytic processing (OLAP) can use the aggregated data to gain new insights about customers, risks and opportunities. Resolved entity data helps organizations improve business outcomes by enabling analysts to save time, get a complete picture from data, and quickly determine how to best hone their analysis to answer critical business questions that propel them forward. The flexible options for deployment and analysis Novetta Entity Analytics provides makes it easy and cost effective for customers to get started combining and analyzing many different data sources and entity types without disrupting ongoing operations.
