The White Noise of Intelligence: Finding Relevance with Interactive Analytics
McLean, VA (Vocus) August 3, 2009
Centrifuge Systems, Inc. , a leading provider of next generation business intelligence software, recently published a new white paper for the US Intelligence Community (IC) entitled "The White Noise of Intelligence: Finding Relevance with Interactive Analytics".
This white paper describes how Interactive Analytics works and includes case studies in the areas of Threat Finance and Cyber Security Analysis. Examples of domain relevant visualizations in the form of heat maps, relationship graphs, timelines and maps are displayed for each case study. The use of collaborative analysis is also highlighted in the paper.
Interactive Analytics (IA) is an analyst-centric approach to understanding data in support of better decision making. It brings together three modern innovations in analysis: Interactive Data Visualization, Unified Data Views and Collaborative Analysis. IA is widely used by US Government agencies in some of the most demanding applications in the world including cyber security, financial crimes, homeland defense and counter-terrorism applications.
With Interactive Analytics analysts can unify disparate data into rich visualizations to uncover relationships and insights that are hidden across their data. Analysts "shift their lens" across different visualizations and pose questions of the data in the process. This highly interactive approach allows analysts to explore data at the speed of the human mind. Results, and work in progress, can be shared with other team members across agencies or global partners that may be analyzing similar sets of individuals or events.
Interactive Analytics is unique in many ways. It is highly interactive and leverages the power of link analysis to identify hidden relationships in data. It is the only technology of its kind that runs completely within a web browser.
