“A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.”
Our Analytics and Technology
Our patented technology software, LUX™, provides two key technical capabilities to deliver speed to insight: the flexibility to handle all forms of data, and the processing power to pull insight from a large volume of streaming and stored information assets in real time. LUX™ empowers our analysts to query data directly through a simple user interface (connected to a complex event processor, or matching engine).
Likewise, LUX™ has a catalogue of nearly 100 analytics available to plug into the analytical framework and our technical team can write new analytics to support unique requirements. LUX™ integrates a variety of machine learning and AI models, both our own and from clients, and can run the expert queries and models at the same time. LUX™ automatically alerts the analysts (and the models) when it detects insights in the data.
The analysts incorporate these automated findings into their assessments. Once they identify key factors worthy of ongoing evaluation, they configure LUX™ to monitor changes in the factors based on evolving datasets. In practical terms, an analyst might forecast an outcome with respect to a company or executive based on specific variables in the data and set up LUX™ to monitor the thesis. The technology then helps the analyst and the client validate, update, or invalidate the thesis, or other aspects of the forecast, going forward. This capability converts static assessments into dynamic, automatically updated situational intelligence, and guides the human experts with the best available information.
As a result, Illumina Insight™ delivers both strategic value and tactical benefit. We track the complexity of the investment decision-making lifecycle from idea generation to exit – seamlessly, continuously, and in real time.
