View From The Top: Attensity Corporation

Text Analytics can be defined as the analysis and understanding of text-based information, with the purpose of using the knowledge derived to make key business decisions. Attensity's approach to Text Analytics provides the widest breadth of extraction technologies and business user applications for analysis and understanding of text. Attensity extracts and transforms various forms of unstructured text into a structured form. It then creates output in a structured relational data format that is fused with existing structured data, allowing the combined information to be examined using Attensity's discovery and analytic applications, or existing enterprise BI applications.

Attensity customers use these capabilities in a wide range of business applications, including:

  • Intelligence analysis, homeland security and law enforcement
  • Voice of the customer
  • Insurance claims processing
  • Anti-money laundering
  • Fraud detection
  • Service analysis
  • Warranty analysis

Implementing Text Analytics solutions can be time-consuming due to the amount of predefinition required to teach the system what facts to extract. To enable customers to quickly leverage powerful, accurate fact extraction, Attensity engineers have developed a patented solution called Exhaustive Extraction™, which requires no predefined extraction logic. This leads to a unique text analysis capability, allowing users to explore the facts of a collection of text even if they don't know what they are looking for "but will know it when they see it." Users of Attensity Text Analytics applications can now ask detailed business questions not only of their structured data, but of all their information.
