Query builder

If you’re not a programmer or wouldn’t know one end of an API from the other, then you need a simple graphical interface for writing filters and getting results. Our platform filters vast amounts of human data from dozens of sources in real-time so writing filters could be a complex programming task. However, Query Builder represents all the sources and augmentations graphically, allowing complex filters to be constructed with a few mouse clicks. To find…

When handling huge amounts of human generated data, filtering isn’t only useful – it’s essential. But filtering only takes you so far. Depending on your filters, you may have anywhere from a few thousand to a few million filtered interactions sitting in your destination. Which are the most important? How can you classify them into groups? What kind of system will you need to do the classification? This is happening in real-time, can you classify…

We run free workshops every Thursday and I’d like to give you an example of what we cover. I’m going to use ‘Configuring Streams with CSDL in the API’ as an example, but don’t be put off if you’re a novice. We have workshops that cover the absolute fundamentals of the platform right up to advanced workshops covering complex destinations and filter optimization. The Workshop All workshops are delivered remotely by an experienced DataSift instructor….

That’s why we run free workshops every week where you can be led through everything from the platform basics to some of the more advanced features. Each workshop is hosted by an experienced DataSift instructor and provides the opportunity for you to…
