Automate the Data Fusion of Publicly Available Information (PAI) & Existing Authoritative Data with SAP HANA ®
Author: SAP NS2   Send Email to POC   View Content
Publicly Available Information is one form of non-traditional data that can offer a treasure trove of readily available data that can help analysts and mission planners across all of the battlespace domains. However, just getting additional raw data streams, when analysts are already overloaded with the massive amounts of data they already have, would only add to the problem.

The answer to this challenge is using automation to find the right data, validate its trustworthiness; then correlate with existing content. The outcome: a complete picture of all the releva ...
