Elsevier’s SciVal Story
Elsevier decided to enhance the analytical capabilities of their first generation SciVal solutions to better serve research institutions in generating hard facts to support their decision making.
The use of HPCC Systems by SciVal has brought two enormous benefits to its users. Firstly, users can customize their own visualizations, which are generated in just a few seconds from almost 40 terabytes of data currently underpinning the tool. And secondly, HPCC Systems works in 2 modes: offline crunching of huge, pre-defined requests, and smaller calculations in real-time on customer-generated data slices. This enables users to benefit from both structured information available immediately upon implementation, as well as having the flexibility to tailor-make their own views of the world.
