FiscalNote – Real Time Government Analysis Platform
Based in DC and NYC, FiscalNote is a searchable database and web resource for government regulatory information and case laws, reducing uncertainty by delivering real time updates. The traditional means of acquiring legislative information was through newspapers and attorneys, and as is the case with most print media, it needed a transition to digital formats.
FiscalNote categorizes information into over 60 sections, with a user dashboard to access a variety of topics and search functions. Organize content by legislators or other variables, and use the site’s algorithms to guess how likely they are to vote for certain bills. If the algorithm guesses incorrectly, it flags the mistake and the developers work it into improving the model.
Set alerts on specific legislative actions, and also search for text in specific documents, which are scanned and made searchable through the site’s engine.
Logentries – Logs as Data
Using system log data to handle numerous tasks and analytics, Logentries was formed out of a log management solution built for IBM but now applied to a cloud platform.
With thousands of users registering billions of logs each day, Logentries serves as a single location to store real time log data and visualize it into graphs and metrics. Users can examine large quantities of data and zoom into individualized sections, flagging critical events for easy access. Past data can also be accessed and analyzed, in variables of days, hours, or even minutes.
