Infosys Launches BigDataEdge to Aid Decision-Making
Infosys is launching a BigDataEdge data mining tool to try to simply the task of analysing so-called ‘big data’ volumes to discover key insights into a corporation’s customers, operations or procedures.
The new software tool, which Infosys says has a near real-time delivery capability, can be customised for specific industries such as retail, telecoms or finance. It pulls structured and unstructured data from multiple sources such as loyalty programmes, customer transactions and social media channels into one dashboard. It can then produce an analysis that can be used by treasurers or the boardroom to win new customers, improve efficiency and internal procedures, or to assist in making strategic planning decisions.

The firm also states that its new launch can be added on top of existing hardware, potentially cutting installation costs.
