The core foundation of the Data Lake is the dynamic, semantic data model. It represents the way you store, correlate and query all information in a factual way using concepts, relations and properties:
Concepts: persons, vehicles, bank transactions, phone calls, equipment, companies, locations, events, network packets, log files etc.
Relations: works at, lives in, has friend, has connection, sent from IP, source file
Properties: first name, last name, birth date, phone number, email, IP address etc.
BigConnect Explorer is collaborative and every action is performed in a Space: data model, searches, charts, data analysis, reporting. Data can be private to a space, shared with other users or published to the public repository to make it available to everyone.
All information that flows into the Data Lake is enriched automatically using various AI algorithms like Named Entity Recognition, Categorization, Image Tagging, OCR etc. View and annotate unstructured content to amend or create new information. Tag entities in text, objects and people in images and associate them with existing information.
Data items like concepts and relations can have a lot of information associated. BigConnect Explorer provides a unified way of viewing and managing items, regardless of their nature: text, images, audio, video, structured data etc.
Analyze the data in its core connected form, using advanced graph visualizations to create connections, see how objects are related and create new items.
Explorer Spatial Analysis
Objects with spatial data can be displayed on an interactive map with support for custom layers, heat-map and annotations. Bring your own spatial layers from GeoServer, ESRI, GeoMedia, Bing, OpenStreetMap etc.
Security is enforced both at the application and at the data level. Users, roles and privileges control control what users can do in the application and with their data. Fine-grained access can be controlled up to an item’s individual property. All actions can be optionally audited for further analysis.
Add interesting items to watch-lists and be notified when something changes.
