RtAnalytics: Getting More Value out of Your Data
Over the last several decades, industries have recognized the need for better information and faster access to it. To achieve this goal, significant investment has been made in data gathering and storage infrastructure. This has resulted in that much more data is available and its accessibility has vastly improved. However, extracting useful and hierarchical information out of raw data has not been as forthcoming; and often this is far more important. RtAnalytics provides tools to validate and analyze the data, and help the users focus on the business logics and rules. In this presentation, we discuss how two RtAnalytics tools - PI ACE and Sigmafine help you extract useful and hierarchical information out of your existing data.
