Context Relevant The explosion of enterprise Big Data has created an unparalleled opportunity for businesses to improve operations, predict needs, and deepen customer relationships. But for most companies, the volume and velocity of Big Data is turning this opportunity into paralysis. While a handful of search engine companies have the capability to extract value from Big Data, most organizations simply can’t afford the hardware or data science teams required to accomplish this. At Context Relevant, we’ve developed a radically different approach that enables enterprise analysts to deliver the types of results that require high priced consultants, sizable data science teams, and expensive infrastructures with other methods.
