The Orak

Intelligence platform and prospective analysis.

By GlobalChase


The analysis of information in intelligence processes is one of the most challenging tasks where there is a long way to go. Intelligence, understood in its most traditional form, is characterized by handling pieces of information that the analyst must be fitting, as if it were a puzzle, in order to foresee what might happen and how likely it is to happen.

The unstructured information management is where it becomes more complex traditional management through information technology. In addition, the analysis techniques used in intelligence processes are subject to constant revision evolutionary, whose applicability and effectiveness depend on particular environments.

GlobalChase, aware of the important role that intelligence analysis is playing, has developed a sophisticated tool, whose design has received input from experts in various fields, ranging from members of official intelligence to corporate analysts.

The Orak is an platform designed for intelligence analysis and prospective scenario design. It is a multifunctional and cooperative system where the interests of information gatherers and analysts can converge.

The Orak allows the introduction of any information or document graphically and simply, just throwing it to the application from your computer desktop. Furthermore, the analyst may use any information to build a full spectrum of techniques (A.C.H., SWOT, PESTEL, etc..) to get a valuable knowledge. Although many of these techniques are applied horizontally, modular design allows to incorporate kinds of sector-specific analysis. Simply, the analyst will use the tool that best suits his needs.

An example may be the extension of data entry for mobile devices, where data collectors can safely transfer its informations without the use of servers. Its scalability allows it to be used individually for desktop computers or enterprise systems using database servers (Oracle, SQL Server, etc …).

The information is handled at all times from three different perspectives: a knowledge map which manages the connections between the data, a timeline where you see the evolution and basic GIS system that puts each item. That is, it provides the who, how and where to allow analysts to focus on giving answers to why and, more importantly, what’s next.
