Squirro Insight Engine

The Insight Engine powering your business

The Squirro Insight Engine augments search technology with Artificial Intelligence to deliver relevant and context-aware insights. It applies relevancy methods to describe, discover, organize and analyze data.

This allows existing or synthesized information to be delivered proactively or interactively to digital workers, customers or constituents, in context and at timely business moments.


What’s an Insight Engine?

Many modern businesses are founded on their ability to use data to make smart and informed decisions in real time. But traditional enterprise search has proved to be an ineffective technology in meeting the demands of the modern knowledge worker.

People need the most accurate, relevant and contextual information delivered to them, so enterprises have benefited from the rise of the Insight Engine - as described by Gartner in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Insight Engines: “Insight engines combine search with AI to deliver actionable insights derived from the full spectrum of content and data sourced within and external to the enterprise.”

Insight Engines augment search technology with artificial intelligence to deliver insights.

Whether for an employee progressing work or a customer pursuing a purchase, decisions and actions require insight - accurate and deep understanding. At the limits of personal knowledge, information becomes essential to attain insight.

Insight Engines apply relevancy methods to describe, discover, organize and analyze data. This allows existing or synthesized information to be delivered, proactively or interactively, to digital workers, customers or constituents, in context and at timely business moments
