Our team just got back from the GEOINT 2017 Symposium where we partnered with the Oracle National Security Group to visualize all the world’s news in near-real time. The demonstration shows how one could conduct cyber threat analysis and geospatial intelligence on a massive, diverse data set, in this case, the GDELT Global Knowledge Graph.  

I sat down with Kevin Madden, our Chief Software Engineer, and Deborah Baron, our Marketing Vice President, to uncover why Tom Sawyer Software is the best-kept secret in geospatial intelligence. We also discussed what was special about partnering with Oracle at the annual Symposium. Read More “The Best Kept Secret in Geospatial Intelligence”

We see a rise in graph and data visualization activity across market segments including automotive, aerospace and defense, geospatial intelligence, enterprise network and IT Infrastructure, and model-based engineering. For example, at Big Data Paris 2017, Airbus outlined their innovative approach to model-based systems engineering (MBSE) using graph and data visualizations. To support MBSE, they use Tom Sawyer Perspectives to integrate diverse data sourcesand synchronize views so architects, engineers, and business managers can collaborate and streamline the design and manufacture of aircraft.

We’re back from an exciting week at Big Data Paris 2017 where we were featured by our customer Airbus in their presentation on enterprise big data integration and graph visualizations.  We were delighted to meet up with our Neo Technology France and UK partners and had a great turnout for our workshop on Airbus and Twitter big data. 

At our booth, in addition to the very cool Airbus GAIA demonstration on a two meter-wide multi-touch screen, fraud detection, criminal investigations, and networking
were the hot topics. Our crime network and Panama Papers demos were very popular with attendees looking for big data and graph visualization technology.
