The Squirro Team is Growing

image

The last two months have seen the Squirro team grow dramatically with new team members and a whole host of new partners. The main area of growth for the team has been on the Technology side showing our dedication to producing the best solution to our customers.

We welcome Marco De Luca as a Senior Solution Architect, Markus Warg as a Solution Architect, Chris von Csefalvay as a Solution Architect for the UK and Ireland, Melissa Craven as sales manager for UK and Ireland and finally Roger Gomol as Managing Director of the DACH region.

Together they bring years of experience and knowledge of the IT industry having worked for market leaders in previous roles. Not only this but they also bring with them an enthusiasm for customer satisfaction and delivering the best possible solution for the end user.

We see this as a positive step for Squirro and we hope that it shows a commitment to our customers and future customers to providing the best technology solution in the market place.

Why not take a look at our new team members bios and read about the experience of the Squirro team on our website.

Leveraging ETL systems and your investment with Squirro

ETL systems are commonly used to integrate data from multiple applications, typically developed and supported by different vendors or hosted on separate computer hardware.

If you already have an investment in an ETL framework, it is understandable that bringing in a whole new system is not viable. But what about adding to your investment and being able to use previously untouched data? Squirro allows you to do just that.

By combining your ETL system with Squirro you can leverage your investment and analyse the 80% of unstructured data that you have not been able to utilize to date.

The main benefit of integrating Squirro with you ETL stack is the ability to connect many data sources and analyze them all. Those customized databases and intricate documents can now be searched and analzed with ease.

The analysis of unstructured data is one of the most important core technologies in today’s knowledge industry. The ever-growing amount of digital data available poses a real challenge to current solutions as their results risk lacking in relevance, timeliness, and adaptability and their usage can be extremely time consuming.

Squirro’s Smart Filter Technology offers the next evolutionary step in unstructured data technologies. Broader than feeds and more specific than search, Squirro can scan multiple sources to find the most relevant information and update it continuously and automatically.

Squirro can also display your data in many formats. From line charts to relationship graphs, Squirro can break down your data and show you the why not just the what.

To find out more information about how you can integrate Squirro with your existing ETL framework get in touch today.

Fact: 82% of Financial Institutions surveyed do not combine data!

75% of companies who took part in our financial Institute Survey said combining structured and unstructured date would be of value but only 18% of those surveyed are currently doing this.

With estimates pointing to an overwhelming split between structured and unstructured data in an enterprise to be roughly 20%/80% companies need to adapt quickly to gain advantage in the market. 

The goal of our survey was to establish how leading global financial institutions deal with unstructured data today and intend to analyse this type of data in the near future.

Although, combining data silos is a must for financial institutions, nearly none of those surveyed are currently combining structured and unstructured data despite 75% saying this would provide value.

Nearly half of the financial institutions surveyed say they are planning activities to unearth the gold in date in the next 24 months. Find out what the focus of these activities will be, what challenges organisations face and what is the ultimate impact of unstructured date analytics for financial institutions, read the full report here.
