An investigation survey on data fusion and analytics
Governmental organizations face a growing challenge in generating actionable insights from large volumes of scattered data. As global leaders in investigative analytics, we understand that the right data allows investigators and analysts to answer time-sensitive questions, critically – to fill the gaps and get the answer to the biggest question of all, “What am I missing?” Without the ability to tag, sift, filter and analyze a growing wealth of data at speed, and connect the dots from one source to another – organizations will drown in the sheer volume of data and manual work involved.
To get greater insight into the technological challenges of fusing data for investigation purposes, and to learn from the CIO’s perspective what their wants and needs are in the market – our friends over at Cognyte went straight to the source. By speaking to 200 CIOs, CTOs, IT Directors, Directors of Technology, and Heads of Artificial Intelligence, this new report Survey on Data Fusion & Analytics for Investigation takes the pulse of the industry in vital areas from investment priorities to cloud adoption, painting a clear picture of the state of data fusion for investigation purposes today.
Here’s a short overview of the survey:
