Neon Big Data Environment
The collection and comprehension of information is pivotal to our national security. Today, government agencies still struggle to digest enormous amounts of data and discover the crucially important, life-saving information that lies hidden within it. In addition to raw data taken straight from the source, emerging technology has led to the creation of machine-learning analytic modules that generate even more data in an effort to identify additional information within the raw data. To explore and analyze these massive, complex datasets, most analysts rely on multiple separate software tools that provide a disjointed user experience and often require expensive licenses.
Neon (along with its underlying library, NUCLEUS) was specifically made to help CACI teams overcome this challenge by streamlining the creation of robust, easy-to-use data visualization software that is customized for specific programs and facilitates the exploration and investigation of diverse, program-specific datasets in a single, unified, browser-based application.
Originating from CACI’s DARPA and IARPA work and now publicly available as free-and-open-source-software, Neon is already in use across multiple government programs to deliver critical insight into distinct datasets, including text, multimedia, geospatial, temporal, ontological, social, raw data, and machine learning analytic output.
