DigitalEdgeTM enables rapid big data ingest, analytics and alerts to empower organizations with actionable intelligence in real-time

MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] today introduced DigitalEdgeTM, a versatile big data software platform capable of real-time, high-volume data ingestion and processing from a variety of complex data sources - helping organizations streamline business operations and enabling decisive action.

DigitalEdge is the first technology release from a family of Critical InsightTM big data optimization solutions for the enterprise. Large organizations in industries such as energy, financial services, health, national security and telecommunications can now benefit from a robust intelligence solution that facilitates real-time actionable business decisions, generating alerts for applied use cases such as cyber security threats, electronic financial fraud detection, medical research and digital anomalies.

The DigitalEdge platform enables automatic scaling to handle the on-boarding and processing of high velocity streaming data. DigitalEdge solves the problem of managing and interpreting complex information with data enrichment, which correlates and merges related data into context-rich records. DigitalEdge also empowers decision makers with real-time alerts when data anomalies are detected. The platform can process billions of data records per day while providing situational awareness based on user-defined alerting criteria.

The platform runs in private, public and hybrid cloud environments and can provide output to a number of NoSQL data stores based upon customer needs. Additionally, DigitalEdge can easily integrate with legacy systems, ingesting and analyzing data that an organization currently generates.

Key Benefits:

  • Real-time actionable intelligence: provides timing and context for a competitive advantage or enhanced situational awareness
  • Component agnostic: easily integrates with legacy solutions while focusing on agile improvements
  • Threat detection and prevention: enables organizations to stay in front of opportunities and threats to critical and sensitive information through real-time alerts
  • Operational efficiency and productivity: dynamically scales up and down as processing and storage demands fluctuate

Key Quotes:

Preston Wood, Zions Bancorporation, Executive Vice President Security Division and Chief Information Security
"Zions Bancorporation is working with SAIC to incorporate the DigitalEdge platform into our security intelligence operations as part of our ongoing efforts in continuing to provide leading fraud prevention and detection capabilities."

John Thomas, SAIC group president, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance "DigitalEdge's advanced ingestion ability can ignite innovative strategies for our clients by enhancing their ability to reach and correlate diverse data sets to create context rich information - which advances real-time decision making. This is important first stage to the big data life cycle that sets a strong foundation for deep analytics. "

Gulu Gambhir, SAIC senior vice president, Group Chief Technologist Officer:
"Live correlation of massive amounts of disparate data in-stream gives organizations their first glimpse of actionable digital intelligence with activity-based, contextual information to drive business decisions."
