How It Works

platform-overview

 

Underlying the ClearStory Application, is an integrated Apache Spark-based Platform that’s a scalable, distributed processing system that understands data sources and speeds access and diverse data blending.

The ClearStory Platform gathers top-down signals of a user’s analysis intent and matches that intent dynamically to one or more data sets registered in the Platform. Flexibility in converged data execution is enabled through Intelligent Data Harmonization™ across internal and external data sources (structured and un-structured data sources) registered in the ClearStory Data catalog. In this way, the ClearStory Data Platform speeds the process from source data-to-insight.

platform-inference

How It works

Data Inference & Profiling

Reduces data preparation time with smart profiling based on data shape, data structure and semantics. You no longer need to model every metric, dimension and attribute. ClearStory Data’s Inference & Profiling Engine relies on Data Intelligence that uses the semantics in the data to generate immediate insights.

platform-harmonization

How it works

Intelligent Data Harmonization™

Intelligently matches data with common dimensions, making it easy to combine multiple disparate data sources into a single Data Story. Provides users with complete visibility via a guided experience to flexibly control the data harmonization strategy. Eliminates the need to pre-model data and conform to a rigid structure for data blending. Models on request to speed data insights. Leverages harmonization to render best-fit visualizations for blended data and updates as insights update.

platform-in-memory-data

How it works

In-Memory Data Units

Data Stories interact with ClearStory’s Apache Spark-based in-memory data processing system that tracks the lineage of the data sources throughout the analysis process. Data Harmonization utilizes Apache Spark’s fast data blending of disparate sources and speeds iterative analysis and discovery.

platform-visualization

How it works

Smart Visualization

Smart, scalable visualizations encourage data navigation and interpretation. Visualizations are rendered immediately based on understanding the source, size, shape and semantics in the data. All visualizations provide intuitive navigation and controls to speed exploration and insights.

platform-active-collaboration

How it works

Collaborative Storytelling™

 Allow people across the organization to actively collaborate on data and insights to reach conclusions faster. Users capture discussions on evolving insights, ask new questions and share their business intuition in a consistent way. Collaboration in a Data Story is data-aware and captures both visual context and state of the data so insights can be tracked in real-time and over time.
