What it does

Siren Platform overview


What is data intelligence?

(and why it is not BI)

Business intelligence tools are all based on the concept of “data views” which are created typically by an engineer or analyst. These are powerful 30,000 ft, data views.

Sometimes however, business intelligence barely scratches the surface.

It is clear, for example, that BI alone will be of little use to find the name of a suspect, the formula of a new drug, the digital signature of a cyber threat.

Data intelligence tools address these scenarios starting with a core innovation: the understanding of the data model and relations between your data.

Unified data model, the key to data intelligence

What is it and how can it help ?

An unified data model (or ontology) is a formal representation of the entities and relationships that exist in a domain – to a level of detail that is useful to answer core domain questions

In a law enforcement example, a business intelligence drill down on a car make and color can be a start but would likely always produce way too many results to find a specific suspect vehicle.

With the capabilities of Siren and the unified data model, the investigator can drill down leveraging other datasets e.g. asking for “cars owned by males in this age group whose mobile was in this approximate location on that date”.

Siren: introducing modern data intelligence

Siren is a modern data intelligence platform – it uses the data schema (ontology) to coherently coordinate BI style dashboards with best in class, full text search, knowledge graph link exploration, domain specific visualizations and more.

Probably the best way to feel its difference is to watch Kibi (the Siren Platform UI component) in action on media and investment data in this quick video.

At scale (on your big data infrastructure)

While previous ontology based tools worked on very limited datasets and were confined to niche applications, Siren Platform is very easy to deploy as it works at scale on top of the data you already have in your existing infrastructure.

Kibi – data intelligence frontend and alerting

Kibi provides data intelligence functionality to the end user and is capable of generating alerts automatically when conditions happen in streaming data.

  • Full-text search with support for misspellings, phonetics, relevance ranking, highlighting and more
  • Business intelligence and scientific visualizations
  • Relational “set to set” navigation and drilldowns: pivot operation across connected big datasets
  • Graph/temporal relational link analysis

Relational drilldowns – across indexes, across systems

Possibly the biggest innovation of Kibi is the unique “relational drill down” capabilities. Backed by Siren Solution’s Vanguard federated/relational join technology, Kibi can provide real-time relational analysis across indices and across external, non-elasticsearch systems (SQL, REST APIs, etc).

Furthermore, at each step of the relational navigation (also called “set to set” navigation), Kibi can visualize and drill down using a variety of tools ranging from fulltext search to BI and link analysis.

Kibi cross index

Time series analytics and temporal components

Time might be just another variable in your data, but it deserves top of the line visualizations and tools. Kibi temporal analytics and components shows connected events coming from one or multiple indices in a single zoomable view.

Graph analytics – see everything interconnected, anytime

Kibi incorporates some of the most advanced graph interactions tools available on the market to deliver a scalable, smooth and interactive graph analytics capability. There is no need for a separate graph data store: the Kibi backend exposes the popular gremlin graph APIs and the Kibi frontend allows investigators to switch anytime from regular data exploration to “graph mode” and back.

Statistical graph inference: auto-discovering the missing links

Kibi leverages in full the big data aggregation capabilities of the underlying backend (Elasticsearch and others) to summarize huge amounts of connections into meaningful summary links at interactive speed. Sophisticated algorithms like the weighted significance auto discovery automatically ensure just the most significant connections emerge.

Scientific analytics (available in Kibi life sciences edition)

Kibi comes with a set of components that are highly suited to scientific data visualization. Among this are big data/interactive speed scatterplots, heatmaps, probability density functions and several other visualizations which are key in advanced quantitative analysis.

Alerting and reporting

Receive alerts and reports (PDFs in your email) with logic ranging from simple queries to advanced complex event processing (CEP) scripts. Also includes Kibi UI integration.

Automated statistical anomaly detection

Sometimes setting rules and thresholds for alerts is problematic or not desirable.

Sentinl scripting capabilities are powerful enough to implement the ebay statistical anomaly detection methodology for example.

Follow our documented recipes in Sentinl (Kibi alerting components) to have these alerts on any metric that might require it.

Siren vanguard

The backend: Vanguard

Relational, federated join technology for Elasticsearch

Siren Vanguard is a unique technology engineered for interactive, cross dataset analysis. The Vanguard technology is “hosted” on top of Elasticsearch and is ideally suited to join data contained in Elasticsearch indexes. With the expected Q4 2017 update, Vanguard will be also able to operate directly on any JDBC source pushing down computations as required while optionally using Elasticsearch as an extended search capability cache.
