ThingSpan Technical White Paper
The Objectivity ThingSpan product is an enterprise-grade, massively scalable distributed platform for graph analytics and real-time relationship discovery. Instead of analyzing a single data source, a ThingSpan application can analyze the connections across multiple data sources in real-time.
Key benefits of ThingSpan:
- Navigational and pattern-finding capabilities at speed and scale
- Organize highly interconnected data by relationships
- Integrate with industry-standard open source technologies: HDFS, Apache Spark, Kafka, Flume, and YARN.
- Cost-effective and scale-out on commodity clusters.
