Recognizes success working with public sector organizations to discover big data insights in support of critical defense missions
WASHINGTON, D.C., December 8, 2015 – Digital Reasoning, a leader in cognitive computing technology, has been listed by CIO Review as one of the 20 Most Promising Defense Technology Solution Providers 2015. The list was chosen by a distinguished panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts, and the CIO Review editorial board. The selection process looked at the vendor’s capability to fulfill the need for cost-effective and flexible solutions that add value to the defense landscape.
Digital Reasoning was recognized for its work with government defense clients to tackle one of their toughest challenges: finding meaning and extracting valuable insights from large volumes of unstructured data. Digital Reasoning has created Synthesys®, a cognitive computing platform that reads human communications data at scale, and resolves it into a high fidelity knowledge representation that can be used for advanced reasoning and analysis. This technology accelerates intelligence collection, enables time-sensitive analysis, and provides essential insights for defense missions including counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and cybersecurity.
“Mission critical intelligence programs within defense, intelligence, and law enforcement organizations require analytics and computing platforms that can rapidly adapt to the changing needs of the intelligence analysts,” said Max Peterson, GM Partners, Worldwide Public Sector, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Digital Reasoning’s cognitive computing analytics platform, Synthesys, needs a highly scalable, reliable and secure platform and for this very reason it’s enabled by Amazon Web Services. We are happy to see technology partners who provide situational awareness and contribute to the safety and security of citizens take advantage of the AWS platform.”
CIO Review noted that Synthesys is the engine behind a solution that helps fight human trafficking, created in partnership with Thorn, an organization that works to address the sexual exploitation of children. Digital Reasoning’s cognitive computing technology powers a tool called Spotlight™ that enables law enforcement to analyze vast amounts of open source data to identify victims and perpetrators of sex trafficking.
Kelly Collins, President, Government Sector at Digital Reasoning, said, “The Department of Defense is peerless in its requirement to understand and process information on all corners of the world. We have proven our ability to perform at Government scale by ingesting and understanding hundreds of millions of documents from blended data sources to help DoD analysts reveal valuable insights out of big data collections and we are delighted to be recognized by CIO Review for these achievements.”
