What is Entity Analytics?

Entity Analytics is an incremental context accumulator for detecting like and related entities across large, sparse, and disparate collections of data, including both new and old data, small and big data environments, to perform analytics on events, people, things, transactions, and relationships.

Entity Analytics helps you to find out the answers to the questions like who is who; who knows who; who does what; whose name is who?

IBM solutions provide context accumulation for quick time to value, embedded analytics and event processing that dynamically adjust for improved responses.
