It has probably never been easier to access important information than it is today, in the era of the Internet and big data. However, the wealth of information available can also seem like a curse – using manpower alone, it is impossible to keep track of significant, often only short-term changes within huge volumes of data. Datahouse AG, a spin-off company from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and a leading provider of innovative web applications, has resolved to address this challenge – and the developers and programmers from this year’s Partner Country are coming to CeBIT in Hannover to exhibit Monitoor, a unique and fully automated solution that identifies changes in websites.
By combining custom keywords with intelligent filters, the Monitoor web application allows users to limit the search to the web changes specifically relevant to them. What’s more, the application provides much more than just basic indications – instead, the key information is collected efficiently and systematically, and can also be displayed and analyzed in graphical format. Analyses are organized by subject area to generate a quick overview of important developments – for instance, besides carrying out structured customer and competition monitoring (in retail, for example), users can also track changes to public infrastructure and in the construction sector. Thanks to its intuitive user interface, Monitoor is easy to use and doesn’t require any specialist technical expertise.
