Global Intelligence and Critical Events

Our Global Watch platform offers a comprehensive view, allowing you to monitor and interpret the significance of worldwide events and narratives tailored to your team's needs. By integrating news, social media, deep web sources, and satellite feeds, we ensure you're the first to identify both narratives, and global events, no matter how granular. More than just detection, our sophisticated algorithms can highlight the ripple effects of these pivotal events. By linking them to supply chains, trade, populations, historical context, and climate insights, we empower you to anticipate and comprehend the broader implications of global occurrences.

Our Global Watch product is a single operating picture for significant global events. We combine news and satellite feeds to detect disruptive global events, whether man-made or natural.

Our algorithms also draw connections between these significant events and supply chains, population centers, climate data, and commodity production to help you understand the 2nd order impacts of world events.
