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 answers to questions such as:

  • 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.
