TORONTO--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2012) - Sysomos, the global leader in social media monitoring and analytics, is celebrating an impressive milestone: the indexing of 100,000,000,000 (one hundred billion) social posts. Sysomos collects social media data in real time from online sources including blogs, forums, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, and news sources, and users of the company's MAP (Media Analysis Platform) and Heartbeat products are able to query, analyze and report across the entire dataset, in seconds.
To give that number some context, 100,000,000,000 is 14 times the population of Earth, or the total number of humans who have ever lived. If all of the documents in the Sysomos database were recorded in print, they would take up 750,000 books and those books stacked vertically would measure 60 times the height of the Eiffel Tower.
"On average, 400 million social media conversations are discovered, processed and stored inside Sysomos every day, and as our clients use our products, more than 100,000 documents are read per second during peak hours," says Nilesh Bansal, CTO and Co-founder of Sysomos. "Despite the substantial amount of data inside the platform, our clients are able to query the system and within seconds, return data filtered by age, gender, and location and sentiment. Data volume never impairs processing speed or user experience."
Sysomos' capabilities and offerings will continue to grow as the number of global social conversations expands and the demands from clients needing scalable social media monitoring and analysis software continue. An exclusive interview with Nilesh Bansal is available on the Sysomos blog in which he talks about the people, processes and technologies that make Sysomos the unprecedented leader in social media software.
Michael Nowlan, President and CEO of Marketwire (owner of Sysomos), says that there is no question why enterprise clients, marketers and agencies from around the world trust Sysomos. "The integrity, breadth and flexibility of the data that powers Sysomos, together with its ease-of-use, is what sets us apart from the competition. Many of the world's biggest brands partner with Sysomos because we provide them with the business intelligence to help them better position their brand and understand their customers."
