HStreaming & Lexalytics Deliver Text Analytics for Big Data

Lexalytics, a provider of text and sentiment analysis software, and HStreaming, a real-time continuous data analytics platform powered by Hadoop, today announced a partnership to deliver a highly-scalable, low-latency text analytics solution for Big Data. The solution enables companies to rapidly analyze large amounts of text data and correlate them with other structured and unstructured data for a complete analytical view.

The solution has no parallel in the market. The combined solution enables customers to analyze thousands of new documents concurrently and uncover what is in them in real time. The system further allows correlating text with other data sources such as customer data or even video for holistic analytics across these sources.  A few of the applications that benefit include: media monitoring, survey analysis, SMS message stream analysis, classification of URLs/web pages, e-discovery, and more.

HStreaming is a scalable complex event processing system powered by Hadoop. It enables customers to handle data continuously as it is generated, run advanced analytics functions, create live dashboards, and trigger actions based on predefined rules or heuristics.

Lexalytics’ Salience Engine is a market leading text analytics engine, used by industries as varied as Social Media Monitoring and Manufacturing to determine the “who”, “what”, “where”, and “tone” that’s implicit in any piece of text.   Salience supports a number of different text analytics functions, including Named Entity Recognition, Sentiment Analysis, Categorization/Classification, Summarization, Theme Extraction and more.  In other words, if you have text, Salience can tell you what it means.

“There’s a lot of text out there, and it’s growing fast.” said Jeff Catlin, CEO, Lexalytics.

“The ability to deploy text analytics on a flexible, scalable, streaming Hadoop platform will allow companies to more easily figure out what’s in all of it.”

“As we witnessed firsthand, traditional enterprises are faced with challenges on how to extract value from data coming from many sources. The partnership is a leap in the direction of finding what is in all the data. It allows companies to extract meaning out of unstructured text at unprecedented rate with milliseconds latency.“ said Jana Uhlig, CEO of HStreaming.
