The Squirro platform provides insights especially from unstructured data but can also deal with structured data. To achieve this, the data is made available to Squirro through the data import APIs. The data is persisted on the data storage layer and can be consumed with the data access APIs.
At the most fundamental level this can be split into:
Gather - collect data from different systems
Understand - derive information and insights from this data
Act - provide to the users in an easy-to-understand and actionable way
