Product Overview

Text Analytics

Highlight was created by linguistics and text analytics experts at Basis Technology in order to simplify IC-compliant workflow and report generation, greatly reducing the number of name inconsistencies from translator and intelligence analyst reports.

Rosette®, provided by Basis Technology, is a suite of linguistic analysis components that integrate into applications to quickly add multilingual capabilities for mining unstructured data.

Because of the intrinsic nature of unstructured text, standard enterprise data solutions have a very limited ability to understand and utilize this treasure trove of information. 80% of big data is represented by “unstructured” text chunks found in documents, web pages, and databases with all the hallmarks of big data: the three Vs (Volume, Velocity, and Variety).

By combining linguistic analysis, statistical modeling, and machine learning, Text Analytics, enables you to get the most out of your data.
