Why is edgeffect different
To deliver on this model edgeffect provides four simple features
edgeffect allows you to easily import a wide variety of both public and private data. A wizard exists to ETL Microsoft Office files as well as any common structured file format. In addition, real time access to open source public data makes a wide variety of data sources available to you.
Through XACT™, all data and analytical objects in the system are self-documenting, allowing you to mix different data types, sources, and analytical tools using a drag-and-drop analytical pipeline approach – a visual programming language that is self-validating eliminates the need for extensive programming.
Once combined, a drag and drop object editor allows for the creation of analytics or our pre-loaded analytical functions can be used. The result is complex analytic algorithms that can be created and implemented without programing.
Edgeffect provides a rich library of chart and report templates. You can run most common types of visualizations or you can use your own best tool for the job: Python or D3.js or whatever you prefer. Advanced visualizations come with the territory.
Current solutions are often complex, proprietary and costlyThis is because:
In order to provide at least some ease of use they either restrict the user to a proprietary platform, or require substantial investment in software licensing and hardware.
Custom development is expensive and the approach most often restricts reusability while requiring very technically skilled developers.
These tools attempt to address the gap between proprietary platforms and custom development. They do lower the cost of ownership and improve the user experience, however they do so at the cost of generalizability, often throwing the user back into the platform or custom development business, if they want to transition to a different solution or integrate additional methods.
