November 12, 2020

“In an ever-changing informational context, LexisNexis’ massive source universe makes Adarga’s content offering extremely versatile and capable of serving an extremely wide variety of use cases for our customer base.”

Overview of Adarga

Adarga creates powerful AI analytics technology that helps you analyze all of your disparate data, to discover the deep insights that drive faster, better decisions. Adarga’s mission is to enhance your ability to use information to make better decisions today and their vision is to empower us all to realize the full potential of all available knowledge.

Adarga's Challenge

Adarga needed a multisource information aggregator which was capable of providing information feeds at speed, at scale and with all the necessary legal credentials.

This need arose because their customers were interested in a huge range of different topics that needed to be covered by the best sources of information available. Adarga therefore needed to provide the widest pool of data possible to enable them to cater for the large variety of use cases their customers had.

The Solution

Adarga spoke with data providers and accessed LexisNexis’ developer’s portal to check volumes and source listings. Adarga selected LexisNexis as their partner to support them in their journey, as they comprehensively met Adarga’s 5 requirements of information quality.

Adarga’s 5 criteria of information quality, and how they were successfully met by LexisNexis:

  • Completeness: Vast array of information sources to choose from: from Generic Global news feeds to local and specialised ones
  • Timeliness: API connection to allow for quasi-real time information processing
  • Relevance: Thematic classification of information feeds to support the discovery of “unknown unknowns”
  • Accuracy: Metadata around feed velocity and language to support the feed selection process
  • Reliability: License agreements with information providers to ensure copyright compliant information distribution and customer support quick turnaround
