What: Webcast: "News Clues: How Web Content Can Help You Predict and Test the Impact of Events"

This Webcast will present TIBCO Spotfire® in conjunction with Recorded Future, a Cambridge, Mass. startup that is a commercial pioneer in the field of news analytics. The Recorded Future engine uniquely identifies and incorporates temporal data in a powerful contextual analysis of text from online content, providing an analytics platform like Spotfire with a rich dataset that can be used to analyze and quantify predictive measures.

Effective financial managers must consider how events – historical, present and future – related companies, products or other entities will impact their financial portfolios and movements in share price. By leveraging the power of Spotfire Analytics – a platform combining advanced statistical abilities with highly intuitive ways to look at data – with the ability to contextually analyze text from online content via Recorded Future's powerful Temporal Analytics Engine, financial managers can easily analyze news events to understand how aggregate measures like market sentiment, trading volumes, and momentum will impact movements in share prices. They can also back test similar, commonly-occurring events in order to predict more accurate outcomes. During this Webcast, attendees will learn about both companies' platforms, and see an integrated application that illustrates the essential ideas behind news analytics.
