Get Excited for a New World of Data Analytics with Corterix

Friday, May 26th, 2017

CorterixLarge sums of data can be difficult to gather, store, and decipher. Luckily, Corterix is fit to do that for you. The big data market isn’t providing usable data to it’s customers so Corterix is determined to store all forms of unstructured data into a SQL database and transform it into usable, structured data without being disruptive to the industry.

Traditional formats were built on a search platform, not a big data platform. Current versions have merely been pieced together over time which has created more of a work around environment than a unified and easy to use platform. This is where Corterix is different because they are built on a new and radically different concept. The platform has been engineered from scratch to swiftly ingest data of all types as well as index, compress and load it into a single, easily accessible SQL database.

And the storage capacity is amazing. Corterix is able to store up to 64 terabytes of data in a single cell of a database and can also store other formats such as videos. Data is constantly growing and as it gets larger, it needs larger databases to query and Corterix can provide that service.

Fantastic Visuals Made From Hidden Data with Cinchapi

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Cinchapi Data PlatformData, data everywhere but not a drop of reason.

As small and large business owners alike are looking to capitalize on the increasing amount of data that is available to them from multiple sources, it becomes increasingly difficult to properly analyze the figures to actually increase profitability. Let’s face it, it’s sometimes difficult enough to even try to figure out the raw data, much less turn it into something useable. The Cinchapi Data Platform has found a way to, as they put it, take your data “from cluster to clarity” by combining machine learning with human intelligence. Their approach makes it easy and intuitive to work with real time or conventional data for maximum results.

The software is able to decipher data from any source (including IoT) and quickly does the hard work of transforming it into usable information for your team to review without delay, while those conditions still exist. This enables businesses to make changes in design and process at the right times. In other words, strike while the iron is hot rather than resort to using dated information when it’s too late to capitalize on those conditions.

Cinchapi streams, examines, and stores definitive data generated in real-time, as well as from conventional, legacy, and proprietary databases and sources. Other features include a context aware, conversational interface; customized visualizations, data prep reduction and more.

Scanbuy

Michael Wehrs from Scanbuy stopped by the TPN CES live broadcast. Scanbuy is a mobile engagement company. They use QR codes, NFC, object recognition and more. They want to figure out what the product is they are scanning and what they are really looking for.

It’s all about getting your target audience. To do that, you have to make sense in what you are collecting.

Scanbuy works with multiple companies to identify what people are shopping for and engagement with that item.

A great use is if someone scans something and their phone’s primary language is Spanish, the information will come back in their language.

W3C

Dr. Jeff Jaffe of W3C joins us at the TPN CES live broadcast. On March 12, 1989, Tim Berners-Lee maps out what would become the World Wide Web.

W3C is now looking at the future. What’s the next 25 years? How will it transform music, healthcare, digital publishing, and more. They have been looking at transformation of society, industry and consumer behavior. They are seeing many changes. For instance, web publishing is high quality. Add mass distribution and the game has officially changed.

“What we saw in the last 25 years which started as accessing static, boring documents,” says Jaffe, “but linking – we’ve now moved into a web of applications, video, rich accessible web, and we put a lot into web accessibility. Because the web is important to society, we have to make sure the web can be accessed by anyone independent of any disabilities that they may have.”
