Guavus is a Big Data Analytics company situated in Santa Clara, California that provides an integrated end-end solution with decision making applications for network engineering, marketing, monetization and customer care. They fuse data from multiple sources and analyze them before its stored providing insights across networks, device, contents and subscriber statistics which helps in making the data relevant and actionable.

Founded in 2006, it follows an Analyze First, Store Later model, which provides a platform where the data can be contextualized with demographics and other information about a client's consumer base. This idea was developed by its founder and CEO, Anukool Lakhina, back in the mid-1990s during his PhD project where he noticed they were filling up their data storage capacity at a rate that caused much of the data to become obsolete for timely analysis. Guavus products currently process more than two Trillion transactions per day.


Technology

alt text

Big Data is getting bigger by the day as it is continuously being generated in massive volumes, at great velocities and varieties of resources. The Guavus Reflex® operational intelligence platform was created to address the size and velocity of streaming and business data from the biggest networks. It follows an Analyze first, store later platform, that includes the following steps :

  • Collection and Mediation - The processed data is queried and analyzed both through native platform exploration tools, as well as via third-party analysis and visualization applications
  • Fusion and Enrichment - The Reflex data collectors process the highest possible volumes of machine-generated data streams for analytic and prescriptive applications
  • Distributed Processing - After the data streams have been normalized, the collected data is correlated and enriched to present network, user, device and content interactions
  • Data Science and Machine Learning - Powerful correlation and analytic algorithms rapidly identify and quantify patterns across data sets, locations and applications
  • Caching and Visualization - The Reflex rules engine makes it possible to define closed loop responses based on prescriptive analytics and prospective outcomes.
