Platform

It's really important to be able to curate what's interesting out of social content and surface that. And that really requires a robust platform where we can dig in and figure out exactly what is relevant.
Peter Yared, CTO & CIO, CBS Interactive

Filter the signal from the noise

Social data is noisy. Whether you’re trying to social analyze trends within an industry, or mentions of your products or brands, you need a platform that can filter out the noise and allow you to focus on the data that’s most relevant to you. This is especially important when you are paying for the social data you receive.
