One of the major customers of Leidos is a large US government agency where modern data analytics is applied for consumer protection and monitoring against bad business behaviour.

They are also constrained by the tools they currently have available.”

“Our solutions make it feasible to apply a big data solution that handles all kinds of data, video, audio, structured data sets, semi structured sets and logs. Capturing huge sets of data from various data sources we can then process them to identify profiles and data sets.”…Click HERE to read full interview.
