Sisense Launches Hunch – The Revolutionary Data Cognition Engine

 In Sisense

Azuka through Smartz Solutions is a proud Sisense reseller, and we are excited to see the launch of Sisense Hunch™, revolutionary Data Cognition Engine. This is a radical innovation in the Big Data market, and Sisense is thrilled to launch it before the end of 2018.  

Hunch is a new category of an ultrahigh performant database and analytics engine based on deep neural networks. Hunch can provide high query rate performance (microsecond to milliseconds) over enormous datasets, compressed by orders of magnitude ( terabytes to megabytes) with a predefined accuracy loss. Sisense Hunch  

Sisense Hunch has been in development for the past few years, and after it was tested on real datasets the results proved to be awe-inspiring! One of the results achieved was through the building of a 2MB hunch model or referred to by Sisense, as Hunch Brain which comprises only 500 neurons. This replaces one billion records and uses 250GB. The Hunch Brain is then able to deliver results at a rate of 100,000 answers per second and has an accuracy of over 99%.

Sisense Hunch Implementation

Hunch enables various possibilities to take place, namely;

Making Big Data Interactive

All users can enjoy interactive data exploration of over terabytes of data. Sisense Hunch’s microsecond to millisecond response times allows users to only query expensive, slower big data system directly when you require specific details.

Identifies The Value of Big Data

Sisense Hunch can compress terabytes of data in the Hunch brain and only occupies 2 – 5MB per terabyte. Once Sisense Hunch is integrated, it requires no further access to the dataset, which puts the power of your data anywhere you need it. This instantly eliminates the need for storage, processing power and bandwidth.

Data Privacy

Sisense Hunch does not retain any knowledge about the details of your data which makes it a zero risk feature. Queries cannot be returned with sensitive data that is prohibited by your policy or compliance requirements.

Zero Footprint Big Data “Storage”

In keeping with a regulatory process like GDPR, where row-level details cannot be stored, Hunch can replace any big data repositories with a nearly accurate solution. There will be no need to keep data that is not needed anymore with Sisense Hunch.

Sisense continues to disrupt the BI & analytics industry with recognition in awards such as being named a leader in the “Visionary” quadrant in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence, and remarkably achieving a 100 per cent rating of “excellent” from customers. Sisense was recognised by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) as the Best Business Intelligence Tool and Platform and has been named to the Forbes Cloud 100 every year since the list was founded.
