  • Built-in visualizations, library of algorithms and integration with third party datasets, including public datasets
  • Ability to gain meaningful insights and share them.

The ShareInsights' Healthcare Reform demo analyzes conversation from unstructured and structured publicly available data sources, including social media, the US Census, healthcare spending data, demographics data; identifies the key people, topics, and media outlets driving and influencing the healthcare discussion and understands the different aspects of the discussion of healthcare reform whether political, demographic or sentiment-based etc. The demo is an example of how Persistent Systems' big data analytics platform can provide necessary analytics -- quickly and easily using Apache Hadoop -- that would help policy makers gain meaningful insights that would help them address the quality of the conversation, the concerns around healthcare and intelligently refine messaging so as to appeal to a wider base.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
