Dataminr has introduced new capabilities integrated into Dataminr Pulse, its corporate risk product.

Dataminr Pulse is designed to deliver the earliest indication of critical risks, and its new advanced geovisualisation and intuitive collaboration workflow capabilities have been created to allow enterprises to collaborate and manage responses to crises effectively with rich visual context.

Following its successful $475 million growth capital financing, Dataminr made two strategic acquisitions in 2021, UK-based, WatchKeeper, a data geovisualisation platform, and Copenhagen-based, Krizo, a real-time crisis response platform, which are now fully integrated into Dataminr Pulse and available to all customers.

Dataminr's expanded product offering comes as the company continues its rapid geographical expansion. In the last year, Dataminr has grown its international team by 45%, adding talent in the UK, Denmark, Ireland, Australia, Canada and most recently, Germany and France.

Dataminr president and COO Jason Edelboim says, “Dataminr Pulse has gained rapid adoption across the corporate enterprise spanning teams focused on corporate security, as well as those focused on reputation risk and crisis management, cyber threat detection and business intelligence. We're excited to advance our industry-leading capabilities with this new product release, and bring them to new international markets.

The fully integrated Dataminr Pulse product is now available to current and prospective customers wanting a personalised, visual and contextual experience, tailored to individual risk areas, the company states.

New capabilities include the following:

  • Geovisualisation to allow customers to see layers of relevant data and how they interact, providing a more holistic view of the risk landscape. Users can also save custom views, individually or as compilations allowing for the analysis of how an event unfolded over time.
  • Collaboration workflows to enable teams to work cross-functionally and in real time as well as manage responses to crises effectively. Teams can also prepare for any event, threat or incident before it occurs with tailored response playbook templates. Collaboration tools within the platform also allow for transparent workflow management so users can be more nimble and proactive in their response, Dataminr states.
  • Reporting and analysis to provide stakeholders with clear records of successes and opportunities to improve during a high-stakes event. Pulse now keeps an active, minute-by-minute audit trail detailing how the team managed an event, threat or incident, creating the opportunity to review, analyse and learn from every event or business risk.

Recognised as a top AI business, Dataminr is focused on enabling faster response, more effective risk mitigation and stronger crisis management for public and private sector organisations spanning global corporations, first responders, NGOs and newsrooms.

Since its founding in 2009, Dataminr has created a real time information discovery platform, which detects digital patterns of emerging events and critical information from public data signals. Today, Dataminr's leading AI platform performs trillions of daily computations across billions of public data inputs from more than 250,000 unique public data sources.

Alongside Dataminr's corporate product, Dataminr Pulse, the company provides public sector organisations with its First Alert product for first response, including the United Nations, which relies on First Alert in over 100 countries.
