Reaching beyond the government

Franklin-based data analytics firm Digital Reasoning is reaching out to new markets with the release of version 3.0 of its flagship software system, Synthesys. The tool allows users to cull useful information from large amounts of unstructured data. So instead of using manpower to read mountains of documents, Synthesys does the “reading” and finds the connections between people, places and things and automatically reports them, estimating the strength between those connections. The government is the 10-year-old company’s top client, with various agencies Digital Reasoning’s tools for security intelligence and other purposes. But the 25-employee company wants to reach into additional vertical markets that deal with lots of unstructured data, and the capabilities and new scalability of the system may help it attract customers the legal, financial and other fields. Company CEO and Founder Tim Estes said the new system version is “the culmination of a decade of solving large scale data analytics problems for the intelligence community. With this release, we are bringing to market the unprecedented understanding of unstructured data in cloud-scale architectures with our integration of Hadoop and Cassandra.” Synthesys v3.0 officially launches today.
