What is entity analytics?

Entity analytics provides a platform to assist in the fight against threat and fraud. It uses context accumulation principles for detecting like and related entities across large, sparse, and disparate collections of data. Perform analytics on events, people, things, transactions, and relationships to make better decisions faster.

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 offer context accumulation, real-time analysis, embedded analytics, and complex event processing to help organizations respond faster.
