Market Intelligence as a Platform

Liftr Insights’ Market Intelligence as a Platform is the software platform and methodology that drives our data collection and analysis.

We gather intelligence about deployed internet-attached infrastructure via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) using DevOps software development and operations methodology. We measure infrastructure availability (what exists), capability (what’s in it) and pricing (what it costs). We provide customers with hybrid alternative data about the internet-attached infrastructure ecosystem, including servers, processors, accelerators, edge computing, IoT, 5G, and other hardware infrastructure connected to the internet.

Market Intelligence as a Platform is different from traditional data collection and analysis. Traditional data collection relies on expensive and time-consuming surveys, which are outdated by the time they are published. Surveys depend on vendors to respond and to respond honestly. Traditional survey analysis also requires statistical modeling to extrapolate small survey sample sizes to an overall market. Often times, survey results are only produced on a quarterly or annual basis, several months after the data was first collected. This results in data that can be subjective, imprecise, and slow.

With Market Intelligence as a Platform, data collection is faster and more complete, and analysis is more thorough and reliable. Liftr Insights uses Market Intelligence as a Platform to collect comprehensive data from service description APIs in order to provide customers with objective quantitative analysis. As a result, customers receive the hybrid alternative data that they need to understand the internet-attached infrastructure ecosystem.

Liftr Cloud Components Tracker

For example, the Liftr Cloud Components Tracker uses Market Intelligence as a Platform to measure availability, capability and pricing for public cloud services. Public cloud services are delivered from internet-attached data centers. Multiple times a month, our software systems scan cloud service provider (CSP) service description APIs to catalog their offerings, determine what hardware is in them and identify their pricing. Because we scan using DevOps, we can provide semi-monthly hybrid alternative data and can adapt to CSP’s changing service offerings in real time. Our approach ensures our data is compliant with SEC and other regulatory requirements. Also, because we have subject matter expertise (SME), the data is more valuable and we can provide monthly SME analysis of the data.

The public cloud is just one of the markets Liftr Insights can measure through our software code and methodology. We can provide alternative data about many emerging technologies. Our Market Intelligence as a Platform is modular and extensible to other internet-attached infrastructure, including 5G, edge computing and IoT.

Liftr Cloud Regions Map

Unlike the Components Tracker, the Regions Map isn’t a product offering on it’s own. The Liftr Cloud Regions Map is an exploratory tool that allows users to discover geographic facets of the Liftr Platform Data in a live, interactive way. As a map, the tool is ideal for displaying a wide variety of slices of the data to expose new insights and ideas from Liftr’s extensive data set.

The Liftr Cloud Regions Map page shares a complimentary snapshot of data, but almost  any kind of data that Liftr Insights tracks can be loaded into the tool for a customized viewing and exploration experience. Users can quickly toggle through CSPs and the expandable dropdown information for an easy visual comparison tool.

Hedge funds, investment managers, and other investors should use Liftr Insights’ Market Intelligence Platform, because:

  • Internet-attached infrastructure is opaque to investors. Service providers aren’t transparent, leaving investors uncertain about their investment decisions.
  • Alternative data sources aren’t available on earnings calls. Using APIs, Liftr Insights creates hybrid alternative data describing availability, capability and pricing of Internet-attached infrastructure.
  • Liftr Insights is built on DevOps software automation, providing investors with objective quantitative hybrid alternative data on a semi-monthly basis.
