How does it work?

Identify the Sources

We will work in conjunction with you – the analyst group and your IT and identify the potential public sources of the data. We will provide you suggestions based on our extensive experience and you provide us ideas so that the sources can  be finalized

Gather the data

We have the expertise and the technology to gather the data from one or many sources and keep gathering it at high speeds without interruption. We also normalize and deduplicate the data and store it for analysis

Analyze the data

We will again work in conjunction with you and identify how the data needs to be cleaned, aggregated, processed and finally analyzed. Eventually you will have access to the raw data or summarized conclusions or reports

You are always in control and know the source of your data

Compliance

We will work with your compliance and legal groups throughout the whole process to ensure that you are in compliance with all regulations and internal risk and controls
