Overview

Top rule

The IBM® i2® Intelligence Analysis portfolio provides government, law enforcement, defense, national security, and commercial organizations around the world with innovative and advanced human-led intelligence analysis tools to help generate actionable intelligence so they can work to detect, disrupt, and prevent physical and cyber threats. The portfolio delivers these capabilities through the expertise and innovation of IBM in intelligence analysis and transparent, cost-effective solutions through a suite of products.

Designed specifically to bring clarity through the analysis of the massive amounts of disparate information that characterizes complex investigations, the portfolio helps analysts, investigators, and the wider operational team to identify, investigate, and analyze hidden connections, patterns, and relationships, and to create and disseminate intelligence products.

This release delivers the following portfolio enhancements:

  • The ability for IBM i2 Enterprise Insight® Analysis and IBM i2 Analyze users to fuse duplicate information at the chart level from multiple data sources. This capability makes fully fused, analysis-ready data available quickly so that users can spend more time on analysis and less on data management. Shareable rules grant speed and consistency to chart fusion across the enterprise.
  • The ability to deploy i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis and i2 Analyze on Microsoft™ SQL Server to offer more deployment options and greater flexibility.
  • Geospatial capability in i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis and i2 Analyze to let users leverage i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis data to complete geospatial analysis and understand the "where" in the intelligence lifecycle.
  • Numerous usability enhancements.

Description

Top rule

i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis

i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis is designed to help your organization turn overwhelming and disparate data into actionable insight and intelligence in near real time. From national security, defense, and law enforcement to cyber and enterprise-wide threats, the solution helps you develop a comprehensive understanding of your threat landscape to identify vulnerabilities and disrupt threats. The combination of machine-led analytics and human-led analysis capabilities helps you quickly find hidden connections and critical patterns buried in internal, external, and open-source data.

i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis:

  • Provides advanced analytics and visual analysis capabilities to help expedite data processing and manual tasks so you can spend more time on analysis.
  • Supports interoperability by integrating with third-party software and offers open-source data connectors to leverage existing data and systems to collect new data and securely share your intelligence.
  • Is modular and cost effective because it is designed to be scalable and interoperable so that it can be extended with add-on capabilities. You benefit from a cost-effective solution that reduces training, maintenance, and deployment costs.

Adding to the comprehensive data ingestion and correlation capabilities already available in i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis, this release introduces the ability to fuse data on the chart surface. Users can de-duplicate data from multiple sources on the chart to help ensure that the data is analysis ready and quickly available. Systems implementors can now create shareable rules to foster consistent, enterprise wide behavior, speed, and efficiency. The ability to fuse data lets users to more fully leverage the range of data ingest options available in i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis, including the i2 connect capability, which lets organizations, business partners, and service providers create connectors to relevant data sources for fast access to data directly from the i2 environment.

Version 2.3.0 introduces the ability for i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis to be deployed on Microsoft SQL Server in addition to IBM Db2®. The ability to deploy i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis on Microsoft SQL Server opens up deployment options and provides the flexibility for organizations to deploy the product on their preferred environment.

Also included in this release is the ability for organizations to connect to and interact with their preferred geospatial provider through an i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis application programming interface (API). This capability helps analysts to quickly understand the where in any investigation directly from the analytical environment for greater context, improved understanding, and faster results. Using the API, systems implementors can configure i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis according to user roles and requirements to incorporate predefined geospatial rules to facilitate customizable and controllable geospatial analysis to enhance analytical capabilities.

IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook and IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium

i2 Analyst's Notebook and i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium offer a visual intelligence analysis environment. They are designed to help analysts to quickly collate, analyze, and visualize data from disparate sources while reducing the time required to discover key information in complex data. i2 Analyst's Notebook and i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium deliver timely, actionable intelligence to help identify, predict, prevent, and disrupt criminal, terrorist, and fraudulent activities.

The offerings enable users to rapidly piece together disparate data into a single, cohesive intelligence picture. The wide range of visualization and analysis tools help to identify key people, events, connections, and patterns that might otherwise be missed. Social network analysis tools help to increase understanding of the structure, hierarchy, and method of operation of criminal, terrorist, and fraudulent networks. Clear and concise briefing charts simplify the communication of complex data to enable timely and accurate operational decision making.

Version 9.2.0 of the following offerings features numerous usability enhancements.

i2 Analyst's Notebook

  • An auto archive plugin to provide versioning of i2 Analyst's Notebook charts for more effective file management and the ability to easily retrieve earlier versions of a chart
  • A column split option for the import column actions page

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
