The key to understanding and
interpreting Big Data is advanced analytics. Mercury Intelligence Systems (MIS)
focuses on the development of new analytic techniques to enable information
discovery in a world of increasing information rates. This includes the
development of new algorithms and the application of existing analytic
techniques on multiple platforms.
MIS is also developing
capabilities to support the linking of predictive real-time analytics with
offline batch processing analytics. In the same way the human brain leverages
information stored in the subconscious, real-time analytics will be enabled to
make better informed decisions based on information derived from the offline
processing of Big Data.
Enhanced visualization services
are also necessary in order to fully realize the power of Big Data. Even with
the aid of advanced analytics that synthesize large volumes of data and
identify new attributes or changes, it is still necessary for humans to
visualize and analyze large data sets in order to derive new levels of
information. MIS is developing capabilities to support a highly functional,
intuitive and technologically advanced visualization and analysis tool suite.
