About DISASTER INTELLIGENCE
DISASTER INTELLIGENCE was founded in 2018, and is the first company to envision the use of cognitive technologies together with real time geospatial analytics, applied purely to the challenge of Emergency Management, and large scale disaster response & recovery.
The platform’s cross-filter paradigm meets the need for modern self-service data discovery, critical when working with today’s massive data sets. When users click on any dimension in geospatial, charts or graphs, we simultaneously redraw every other visualization in a dashboard to reflect the new context IN REAL TIME. This is a transformative way to quickly find correlations and outliers in data.
DISASTER INTELLIGENCE is a member of the National Information Sharing Cooperative (NISC), and is working closely with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) on a number of initiatives, including the Outage Data Initiative, which standardizes power outage reporting for utilities, mutual aid and emergency management.
The platform redefines operational analytics by giving users the power to query and visually explore highly diverse, multi-billion row, high-velocity datasets at the speed of thought.
