Yesterday, the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) and Analyst One held their annual summit on the future of data analytics, titled “Analytics 2014: Insights for Mission Impact.” Praescient’s Vice President, Bill Wall, presented our signature law enforcement and geospatial workflows to an audience of big data experts and federal, state, and local analysis professionals. He contributed to a day of conversations focused on the emerging analytics tools and techniques organizations should harness to achieve their critical intelligence and security objectives.
The need for analysts to embrace big data analytics to enrich their investigations was one of the major themes that emerged at the forum. Keynote Speaker Jeff Jonas of IBM, as well as many other speakers and panelists, highlighted how new sources of information present a unique set of advantages and challenges to intelligence and law enforcement organizations. Thought leaders at the forum urged those in attendance to lean on the latest big data analysis tools and techniques to better leverage disparate data sources from both open and classified domains.
Bill’s presentation demonstrated Praescient’s ability to combine data streams to achieve vital law enforcement objectives. Using portions of our “Analyzing the UK Riots” video demo, he described our ability to fuse open source event data with geospatial information and social science databases to understand an evolving threat picture. The demo is just one of the many of examples of how Praescient combines the right tools with smart analysis to solve tough problems.
