Eleven years ago, BrightPlanet coined the term “Deep Web” to describe Internet databases not reached by surface web crawlers like Google, Bing, or Yahoo. However, there continues to be confusion between the Deep Web and the “Dark Web.” There are major differences between the two terms; Deep Web and Dark Web should NOT be used interchangeably.
The flood of Big Data that is added to the Deep Web each and every day can be harnessed and leveraged for any industry with the proper tools. You can track what is being said, when it is being said, where it is being said and who is saying it in a searchable database.
In our latest free whitepaper we examine what Big Data is and showcase case studies of five industry leaders effectively using Big Data. These industry leaders, whether they be a Fortune 100 company or a political candidate, have used BrightPlanet’s solutions to harness Big Data. Learn how you can harness Big Data in these industries:
- Business – Brand Protection and Anti-Couterfeiting
- Finance – Monitoring News with a Potential Impact on Trading
- Healthcare – Force Multiplier for Translational Research
- Politics – Brand Management and Competitive Intelligence
- Law Enforcement – Monitoring Social Media During Large Public Events
