One of the very common problems for in the context of the Big Data applications is to extract high quality information from unformatted documents. There is no silver bullet solution for this problem.
The Data Factory presents a solution that combines:
- A "production line" that consist of a few data extraction tools (regex, NLP Semantic 4GL, machine learning, machine learning based on human training, etc.)
- The associated CMS - the platform designed to solve the exceptions and verify the quality of the data.
The Data Factory is a potential solution for companies of any size to extract information from non-formatted documents with a relatively low cost. Three different solutions will be provided:
- Platform as a service – a system that provides data for the US Mutual Fund Industry
