Babel Street Launches Groundbreaking Insight APIs

Babel Street | September 02, 2022

Babel Street, the world's leading AI-enabled data-to-knowledge company, today announced the immediate availability of three new Insight APIs that allow customers and partners to incorporate data onto any chosen platform. While the Babel Street Platform has been implemented in a variety of environments, these APIs dramatically increase flexibility for customers and partners. With the new Insight APIs, Babel Street now offers customers more control and configuration capabilities than any other Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) platform. Highlights of the Babel Street Insight APIs include the global and multilingual capabilities, which make it possible to process any publicly available input in hundreds of languages, as well as access to the AI and ML-enabled Babel Data Library, the world's largest and most diverse collection of enriched data. The library empowers customers with data that has undergone a range of improvements like normalization, location extraction, sentiment analysis, violent intent detection, entity identification, and curation by topic or location. As a result, insights relevant to customer challenges can now go anywhere to rapidly inform multi-disciplinary teams and agents, including customer data lakes and internal applications. Each day over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created online, adding to the massive trove of data already available. Intelligence professionals rely on Babel Street's technology to access valuable data, position it for fast, accurate analysis, and ultimately generate critical insights in the proper context. The Insight APIs put customers in control with configuration and channel functionality that accelerates time-to-insights. "Our customers don't just need publicly available data. They need that data fast, accurate, and to arrive in context. Above all else, they need data that is accessible in the right place, consistent with intelligence operations, standardized for consistency across hundreds of sources, and available for analysis in real-time. "Our Insight APIs bring agility and flexibility to the intelligence process, even as the firehose of data grows by the day." Pat Butler, SVP Strategy at Babel Street The OSINT market is expected to grow to over $20 billion by 2027, with national security teams and large enterprises leading adoption. Analysts have also predicted that by 2025 over 463 exabytes of data will be generated each day globally. Given the rapid growth and disparate nature of data, it's critical that providers make their technologies increasingly flexible and customizable. Babel Street's Insight APIs ensure a perfect match with national security and enterprise requirements while expanding the possibilities for end-users. "This new offering represents the latest step in our push to make open-source intelligence solutions easier to use and consume for both public and private sector customers," said Michael Southworth, CEO of Babel Street. "These APIs create incredibly flexible opportunities to ingest data into an existing platform while increasing the depth and speed of relevant insights. We're proud to be the only OSINT provider who can reliably put intelligence anywhere and do it at scale." The Babel Street Insight APIs include: Channels The Channels API provides access to Babel Street's curated collection of documents indexed by topic and location to provide real-time global situational awareness, focusing on breaking news, disease outbreaks, mass casualty attacks, national disasters, terror events, transportation, and other significant events. Document The Document API leverages Babel Street's extensive enriched data library, which processes hundreds of millions of documents per day across tens of millions of publicly available sites to make full-form feeds available for indexing and search in near real-time. Identity The Identity API provides access to person-based public records data and related documents. Searches are performed using identifiers, such as name, address, phone, email, social handle, and more. About Babel Street Babel Street is the world's leading AI-enabled data-to-knowledge company.

New Relic Brings Error Tracking into Atlassian Open DevOps Solution

New Relic | August 10, 2022

New Relic , the observability company, today announced it has joined the Atlassian Platform Partner Program as part of the Atlassian Open DevOps solution that integrates Jira Software with popular DevOps tools. New Relic has integrated errors inbox with Jira Software to empower developers to easily access and set up full stack error tracking and software performance monitoring from inside Jira Software, Atlassian’s issue and project management tool. With this integration, developers can create Jira Software issues directly within errors inbox, the New Relic platform functionality for error tracking. This announcement coincides with the launch of the Jira Software toolchain page, which helps developer teams to discover and install DevOps tools to improve DevOps practices across their software development lifecycle. “As applications grow more complex, developers need a system in place to proactively fix errors before the customer experience is impacted,” said Peter Pezaris, SVP, Strategy and User Experience at New Relic. “Errors inbox for Jira Software, which builds on the strong history between New Relic and Atlassian, makes developers’ lives easier by allowing them to get to the root cause faster with full error details — including stack traces — and alerts whenever a critical, customer-impacting error arises. Ticketing is made easier, too, as teams can instantly create Jira Software issues with all the right information, without leaving their error management workflow.” Key benefits and capabilities of the New Relic and Jira Software integration include: Track, triage, and resolve errors in one place: Errors are grouped and displayed on a single screen for visibility and easy triaging. Tackle errors across the full application stack with APM, RUM, Mobile, and Serverless (Lambda Functions) data tracked. Resolve errors before impacting customers: Proactively review and triage errors before they affect customers. Get to the root cause faster with full error details, including stack traces and logs in context, provided in the error inbox. Collaborate across teams: Squash bugs as a team with shared error visibility, shared comments, and an integration with Slack. Create Jira Software issues with a click: With the new integration, set up templates and quickly file Jira ​​Software issues containing error details, associated issues, and direct links to the stack trace and entities in New Relic for easy debugging. “Atlassian and New Relic share a vision to improve the developer experience by meeting users where they are and allowing them to use the tools they know and love. “We are excited to include New Relic errors inbox as an app in the Jira Software toolchain page, which makes it easier for millions of users to discover and connect DevOps apps used throughout the software development lifecycle to fill gaps in the toolchain as their DevOps practices evolve.” Bryant Lee, VP of Partnerships and Developer Experience at Atlassian “We have been really impressed with how New Relic errors inbox offers a single place to track all the errors for the entire stack," said Mudit Mehta, Software Engineer II at Postman. "Errors inbox helps developers save time instead of looking and jumping through multiple tools for cloud-based or external error tracking. With the integration for Jira Software, I can quickly view an error and notify the right team members by filing a templated Jira Software issue in seconds without even leaving the New Relic platform.” The Jira Software toolchain page is the latest collaboration between New Relic and Atlassian. The integration builds on the recent launch of the Bitbucket quickstart in New Relic Instant Observability, which gives engineers visibility into the health and performance of their Bitbucket pipelines to continuously improve and optimize their deployments. Developers can also connect Jira Software to New Relic alerts to help the right teams get the right information in the software development life cycle. Errors inbox for Jira Software is available for free to all New Relic full platform users and Jira Cloud users. For more information, visit www.newrelic.com. Additional integrations for Atlassian’s Connect applications with errors inbox and other capabilities will be available later this year. About New Relic As a leader in observability, New Relic empowers engineers with a data-driven approach to planning, building, deploying, and running great software. New Relic delivers the only unified data platform that empowers engineers to get all telemetry—metrics, events, logs, and traces—paired with powerful full stack analysis tools to help engineers do their best work with data, not opinions. Delivered through the industry’s first usage-based consumption pricing that’s intuitive and predictable, New Relic gives engineers more value for the money by helping improve planning cycle times, change failure rates, release frequency, and mean time to resolution. This helps the world’s leading brands including adidas Runtastic, American Red Cross, Australia Post, Banco Inter, Chegg, GoTo Group, Ryanair, Sainsbury’s, Signify Health, TopGolf, and World Fuel Services (WFS) improve uptime, reliability, and operational efficiency to deliver exceptional customer experiences that fuel innovation and growth.
