Better Options for Data Analytics

Our Contribution

The open-architecture tool we developed for U.S. Special Operations Command’s Science and Technology Directorate limits dependence on a single vendor and enables the command to evaluate data analysis and visualization tools against defined data and interfaces. Most vendors prefer to provide the government with a full package of data, analytics, and visualization solutions. To support its specific missions, the government has to force vendors to provide analytics that it can separate from the data. Further, great power can be achieved by defining the interface between analytics to leverage a group of analytics to support a specific mission model.
