PlanetRisk can embed engineers, data scientists and intelligence analysts into operational environments to discover the most valuable data sources, employ the most appropriate applications, and rapidly design new solutions and custom algorithms to solve high value challenges. PlanetRisk researchers and analysts discover patterns and make forecasts that provide insights for advanced decision-making. PlanetRisk leverages our big data platform to perform advanced analytics on complex data sets. These technologies offer the potential for processing increasing larger volumes of data at subnational levels of scale. By harnessing the power of big data, policy analysts and economists design and apply algorithms to perform analytics such as graph theory, macroeconomic factors, Bayesian, decision trees, and Markov modeling to answer complex questions. Data scientists have the tools to reach ever deeper toward ground truth to render a more accurate picture of the present situation, and to model, simulate, forecast and predict probable futures and outcomes. In this sense, big data analytics is more about the size of the question than the size of the data.
