An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

We are in the age of data, and it is now the lifeblood of almost every organization. Yet most of them leave one of the richest sources of data — web content that contains news, customer comments, social interactions and the like — untapped. The reason is that this content is unstructured and otherwise hard to capture. So in spite of the focus on big data and analytics, the collection of web-based data has been a big hole for enterprise organizations. has created a solution that converts this unstructured web data into machine-readable data feeds and a searchable archive — making it readily accessible to its enterprise clients. Its proprietary crawlers scan hundreds of thousands of sites each day and then download and structure the data in its purpose-built repositories. It believes that it provides the greatest coverage and data quality by focusing on the collection of this data rather than providing analytics and data management — letting its clients use their preferred tools to do these important functions.

The result is a comprehensive data set that the company claims its customers use for a variety of use cases, including: machine learning training, predictive analysis and risk assessment in financial services, customer service, brand and reputation management, and competitive intelligence. Organizations can further take the company’s data and enrich it with proprietary data to identify unique insights or create other forms of competitive advantage.
