Search is still relevant, even with AI

I was recently reading an article on InfoWorld discussing how AI is quickly capturing the imaginations of data scientists, producing a forecasted trillion dollars in revenue over the next decade.  And, while I agree that AI (specifically machine learning or deep learning) is going to be a very lucrative industry, AI does not overcome the […] Read More

PCAP Primitive Video Sneak Peek

There are many open source and proprietary tools on the market today which enable PCAP analysis, but many of them routinely run into performance, computational and memory bottlenecks, especially as the input corpus becomes large. Ryft’s PCAP primitive was created to help organizations solve these problems with the powerful performance, speed, simplicity and flexibility needed […] Read More

Are Your Insights Real-Time or Right-Time?

We’ve spoken to a number of customers recently and have noticed that many are focused on either “real-time insights” or “right-time insights.” As data volumes and velocity grow, we should spend some time looking at the intersection of both: identifying the right-time opportunities in real-time. Unfortunately, many organizations experience barriers when it comes to gaining […] Read More
