Kystone™ Accelerators—Strong Foundation for Efficient, Repeatable Solutioning

As the amount of data continues to increase, many organizations struggle to get their hands around and effectively use their data. Each Kystone Accelerator embodies processes, practices, tools, and templates necessary to build a strong foundation for data exploitation. Accelerators are designed to provide the highest degree of automation while still enabling speed and scalability.

Kystone™ Threads—Solving Real World Data Problems

Leveraged in the right combination for each customer’s strategic goals, our accelerators enable more complex capabilities. Kystone Threads are preconfigured combinations of our accelerators to solve specific data challenges including Information Quality, Edge Analytics, In-Depth Learning, and Information Readiness. Combining accelerators strengthens and speeds the solutioning process, enabling our experts to exploit and optimize data sets, get meaning out of data faster, and increase time to value. Because accelerators are modular and adaptable there are multiple ways they can be combined.

Cross-Industry ApplicabilityContinuous Innovation

Kystone easily translates across domains including commercial industry and government agencies. Kystone Accelerators and Threads have been implemented in the Department of Defense and commercial retail, insurance, healthcare, and manufacturing verticals. Many of our current customers were looking for scalability and speed, Kystone has continuously delivered on these two key measures of success. With each customer and each data challenge comes something new. Armed with that knowledge, Illumination Works continues to evolve the Kystone solution set through internal R&D, government-funded Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) projects, and lessons learned in each implementation of Kystone capability. Future roadmap items include semantic tagging and layering, active metadata, and AutoML enhancements.
