Real-time information

The relevance of alternative data is closely tied to the moment. In order to use it to unveil market trends, big data should be consistent, regularly updated, and delivered in ready-to-use formats.

Possible risks

Whether your company collects publicly available data or provides in-depth analysis, you cannot risk to base the insights on outdated or messy information and miss a crucial signal on one of the sources. 

How can we help?

Oxylabs solutions allow collecting real-time information from complex targets. Next-Gen Residential Proxies include an ML-based Adaptive Parser that returns parsed information in JSON format and helps companies focus on analysis rather than sorting collected intelligence.

Global coverage

Monitoring multiple websites and other public sources for alternative data requires extensive resources and sometimes depends on a specific geographic location. 

Possible risks

Alternative data sets often include information on retail trends,  e-commerce intelligence, and real-estate market analysis. While most websites provide data based on users‘ IP addresses, acquiring such specialized information from a certain location might be challenging. 

How can we help?

Alternative data sets are not so readily accessible or as structured as traditional forms of intelligence. Collecting such web information is often time and resource-consuming and requires innovative solutions that can help you harvest public data whenever needed.

Possible risks

To collect alternative data, companies need to go through numerous desired sources and collect a lot of data. This information needs to be still relevant for companies to react promptly and make strategic decisions.
