  • A use case on how big data is useful in the E-commerce domain and how PromptCloud facilitates the same.
  • Problem 1- There are too many data sources. How do you manage to collect only “relevant” data from all of them?
  • Problem 2- The data needs to be in a pre-defined format and follow a schema so that it can be easily imported into your database.
  • Problem 3- Processing this amount of data requires lot of compute power and infrastructure optimizations. Monitoring the dynamic web and then fixing breaks as and when they occur requires resources too.
  • Increasing online presence of retailers has led to a surge in data. In such cases, how do we get clean data from all these sources in a ready-to-use format without losing focus from your core business. Crawl and extraction is a separate business in itself which in order to run requires expertise as well as resources. In addition, a business that needs lot of data to run cannot do with limited datasets. How do you then regularly get these feeds automatically each day at an exact time?
  • Businesses looking to aggregate product prices and their availability information can run their analyses for their comparison shopping vertical using all the relevant data crawled and extracted from all desired sources.
  • Web is an immense source of consumer reviews on productsalong with details on pros, cons and best uses of a product, how they rate it and if they recommend it. Keep listening to data from across the globe across platforms.
  • In order to run insights and derive analyses requires truck loads a meaningful data points.
  • Our platform does custom data extraction of relevant product specifications/reviews from the web on a large-scale using our proprietary crawler and data extractor. We also provide a hosted indexing on top of this data so that you can do a keyword search on it.
  • An illustrative record for product specifications
  • We define SLA’s and work with them. We specialize in low latency crawls and converting this unstructured crawled data to structured in an automated manner. Our platform is scalable to as many sites that you might have and we provide all this data regularly via our REST-based API. We provide both deep data (all past data that ever appeared on the site) as well as new data as and when it appears.
