The novelty of this framework lies in handling the multidimensional data with ease, using techniques such as locality-sensitive hashing. The strong unifying architecture leverages open source and big-data technologies. It uses intelligence algorithms using a black-board architecture to correlate different data sources and processes huge amounts of data in real time.
There are several use cases for this kind of data gathering and crunching: detecting supply chain risks, demand forecasting, competitor actions and more. TCS’ customers in the manufacturing, retail, banking and insurance industries are quite excited about this framework.
