The amount of data available on the Internet today is enormous. Predictions estimate that the data volume will exceed 40 000 Exabyte in 2020*. Especially social media produce masses of dynamic and unstructured data that are a powerful source for customer, competitor or other stakeholder related information. However, the mere amount makes it extremely hard for businesses to screen and filter strategically relevant data. The ability to transform these big data into smart data makes relevant data accessible and hence leads to huge comparative advantages.
We are focusing our innovative research on leveraging this potential. New and innovative Business Intelligence processes for collecting, analyzing and visually presenting data will assist you in achieving your business goals. In order to establish the basis for data mining and web scraping, we develop innovative smart monitoring tools for turning Internet platforms into service platforms for individually relevant smart data.
