192.com (London, UK)
1997 was the year one for 192.com & DTA.
192.com had just a few info web pages. The data was published on a single CD ROM (650 MB) which contained UK Electoral Roll Records (50 million), BT OSIS Residential and Business records (20 million).
Each version of CD ROM was published in 300K copies. There was no room for bugs.
For data processing we were using 1GB hard disk, while raw data was 8GB in size.
The data needed to be processed and encrypted in such a way that allowed fast searching, but protected malicious data extraction.
We developed our own data processing tools and database engine but did not have the name for it. A decade later the new tecnhologies arose MAP/REDUCE, BigData, NoSQL.
We looked back and said: “Hey, this is what we've been doing all along. It seems we finally have a name for it.“
In the meantime we were part of the 192.com growth into the leading UK search engine for information on people, businesses and places with 7 million monthly visitors.
We grew as well, becoming experts in high-availability, high-transaction distributed systems and development of highly interactive websites. Here and there we did some web mining solutions, Information Retrivial (IR) and Information extraction (IC).
We mastered big data processing.
Hooyu Investigate (London, UK)
Apart from doing commercial projects we had time, will and resources for R&D projects. One of them was to present and visualiize data used on 192.com via graph. We initially made a fully working prototype which was used as a skeleton for final product
The product replaces linear “waterwall” searches and presentation with completely interactive search and explore experience where you can immediately see links between people, companies, directors. addresses and dig into them further. You can even overlay your own data over other data sets , make your own links, save you graphs & paths.
