The National Security market finds itself dealing with ever increasing volumes of data to which applying computing power and human analysts seems like an obvious solution.
Volume is only one dimension of “Big Data” problems. The Variety, Velocity, and Veracity of data makes simple solutions far from simple. Navstar’s Data Scientists, working together with our Infrastructure Engineers and Developers, decode customers’ Big Data. Leveraging AGILE methods to work iteratively and closely with analysts, Navstar associates apply cutting edge algorithms to unveil hidden associations within the data and then automate their future discover. For example, presented with months of performance data on a key intelligence system, Navstar Data Scientists were challenged with a “what can you find out” question. Even though our team lacked contextual understanding of the data, they were able to take what appeared to be random data and transform it through Data Cleansing, verified by mathematical models, into a trend-line that accurately predicted a failing component saving the customer millions of dollars and potential lost access to the system.
