IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis

In an Enterprise Insight Analysis deployment, the data to be analyzed, such as communications data, financial transactions, or network events, is stored in the Information Store. In addition to this main data store, you can also include an Analysis Repository to store the results of your investigation, and access data stored in external data stores.

Depending on your needs, there are multiple deployment patterns that you can use, and the features that are available differ. However, regardless of the pattern that you select, the predicted workflow is as follows:

You design your query, search the applicable data store, and then apply filters to refine the results. If your organization uses Esri ArcGIS to host geographic information system (GIS) resources, you can set geospatial constraints with IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook® Connector for Esri before you search the data store.

After you reduce your results set to a manageable size, you can add items to a chart for further analysis. Enterprise Insight Analysis includes analytics that you can use to look for patterns and relationships in the data.

Enterprise Insight Analysis also offers an automated identity resolution and recommendation engine that monitors data from its data repository to detect related entities, resolve non-obvious relationships, and provide name analysis. The recommendation engine includes a plug-in that integrates with IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium to help you to research entities and to provide alerts when specific relationships are detected within the operational data.

Enterprise Insight Analysis also provides access to a core subset of capabilities that are delivered through a lightweight browser-based application. These capabilities can help users from outside the traditional intelligence unit work alongside the analysts and support information collection. In addition, i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis also can present summaries of pertinent information through key performance indicators for operational insight and situational awareness.

Extra capabilities for extending i2 Enterprise Intelligence Analysis are available as optional add ons:
IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis Recommendation Engine Add On
Delivers automated identity resolution and a recommendation engine that helps analysts and investigators to quickly determine when multiple identities are the same. In addition, connections that are not obvious are highlighted, allowing the analyst to make connections that are otherwise hidden in the noise. Proactive alerts callout when new information is available and when data points alter, strengthen, or resolve.
IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis Collaborate Add On
Designed for other key stakeholders in the organization, including researchers, investigators, front-line personnel, and decision makers. The Collaborate add-on extends and uses the valuable intelligence that is created by the analysts. It provides access to a core subset of capabilities that are delivered through a lightweight browser-based application. These capabilities can help users from outside the traditional intelligence unit work alongside the analysts and perform supportive roles, including information collection.
