Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI): A Paradigm Shift in Analyzing Data Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI) is an intelligence-oriented data analysis approach that harnesses new technologies and processes for efficient, real-time diverse-data analysis. With ABI training, you will be able to: • Analyze large, diverse data (Big Data) streams in real time • Leverage ABI tools and techniques needed to develop software for ABI analysis

• Understand and address emerging security threats • Create meaningful ABI collection strategies to enable correlation analysis • Uncover Patterns of Life (PoL) using ABI techniques

Begin Your Path to ABI Certification Achieving ABI Specialist & Expert Certifications equips you with a set of principles, processes and skills for data analysis, and optimized resource allocation that is adaptable across missions and markets. You will be able to provide more value to decision makers using the data your organization already has on hand, and unravel complex issues with granularity and at a speed necessary to drive decisions and action.
