Context Relevant Introduces its Advanced Analytics Platform for Financial Services and Security

This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateSpring 2015.

Context Relevant is the company that helps FIs handle big data in real-time.

Context Relevant’s automated, predictive analytics technology is the only system with sufficient scale to automate, compute, and analyze petabytes of structured and unstructured data in real-time, incorporating findings back into its modeling process automatically. These adaptive learning systems’ ability to make sense of seemingly unrelated data, at scale and real-time, is redefining industries from finance to aeronautics.
