FAQs

Q?

What problems do you solve?

A.

"Big data" commonly contains undetected errors or anomalies. We detect them, and make them easy to analyze, visualize and share. This can:

  • Uncover problems or opportunities you didn't know you had.
  • Make any analysis that you are already performing more accurate.
  • Give your analysis a starting point.

Q?

Is this for operational use cases or is it an aid to data science?

A.

Yes.

Our user interfaces are designed to help you quickly identify data anomalies and diagnose their root causes, at operations-monitoring speeds. But the same kinds of results can be invaluable to focus your efforts in data science.

Q?

What is your product called?

A.

Nestlogic ADP. The ADP stands for Active Data Profiling.

Q?

How does your product work?

A.

Nestlogic ADP calculates, for each segment of data, the degree to which it is anomalous or surprising. Then it provides you with this information via several user interfaces, including:

  • A news feed summarizing the surprises in your data.
  • Visualizations that support powerful drilldown.

Q?

How is Nestlogic ADP offering packaged and delivered?

A.

NestLogic ADP is designed for the cloud. However, we can and do deploy it on customer premises if that is what they require.

Q?

What kinds of errors and anomalies do you find?

A.

"Big data" commonly streams in from multiple sources over time. Examples of errors and anomalies we detect include:

  • Data has stopped coming in from particular machines.
  • Particular groups of users are much more common than usual. (This could be an indication of fraudulent traffic.)
  • Data from particular sources has changed in format, causing it to be recorded incorrectly. 
  • Some kind of devices almost disappeared from some data source.

Q?

How real-time is this?

A.

Very. Data is processed (and compared to historical data) as soon as it arrives.

Nestlogic ADP is field-tested at data freshness of 1 hour. A true streaming version is working in our labs.

Q?

Isn’t it hard to do all that with reasonable performance?

A.

Yes. 🙂

Q?

CAN you do it with reasonable performance?

A.

Yes. 🙂

Q?

What underlying technologies do you use?

A.

The main ones are Spark, Kafka, Hadoop and ElasticSearch.

Q?

How can we try Nestlogic ADP?

A.

If you provide us with a sample of your data (real or dummied as you choose), we will be glad to load it into our system and show you the results. Of course, we also have demo data sets of our own.
