From the description on DST’s website:
The Adaptive Data Engine gives DST’s consulting and database teams the ability to rapidly onboard data and enrich it with information about people, places and times – adding context to events. As we move into the Big Data world companies are faced with not only knowing how to extract value from their data, but also which 3rd party data feeds are required to add context to their customers’ behaviour. Without a toolkit to rapidly ingest new datasets into a data warehouse, organisations run the risk of not maximising value from their data & systems. If data is the new oil, surely it needs refinement and enrichment to run a business.
