expertise for large organizations looking to bring order and clarity from massive amounts of disparate data in real time. SAIC provides its customers this offering for real-time big data ingest, processing, analysis and predictions of what comes next. “These highly tailorable tools include DigitalEdge, Scale2Insight, DigitalEcho and SAIC Expert Services,” Zitz added. Northrop Grumman is focused on the needs of mission partners for defining, orchestrating and executing capabilities. This includes “smart “collection systems and sensors, automating data processing, and analysis.” “Our core customers include various intelligence agencies, the Department of Defense and other federal agencies,” radars detect, classify and track human and vehicular traffic for real-time and forensic analysis in this AGI partner (Suritec) White stated. “We’re bringing some of Mobile application, Hyperstar.
