The company has created a big data software that allows clients to connect multiple sources of internal and 3rd party data to get a full 360° view of the customer. . It allows the clients to make better decisions based on actionable data. It is being put to use in finance to detect financial crime, government to detect fraud and marketing to get a full view of the customer (to name a few).

You should be familiar with both.
