Transforming Data into Actionable Insight
Brillient helps federal agencies transform information into actionable insight. We are solutions engineers who specialize in harvesting data and information from disparate sources. We enable data discovery, analysis, data mining and predictive analytics in a nimble and expedient manner.
Our solutions engineers have extensive experience designing intelligent data analytics programs from the ground up to solve real world problems including fraud, waste and abuse, econometrics, financial analysis, demographics, regulatory analysis and compliance.
We begin each contract by working closely with our clients to understand their objectives—what problems are they trying to solve, and what questions are they trying to answer? Using this information as the foundation of our work, we develop custom information governance and intelligent data solutions.
We’ve worked with more than 22 federal clients over the past decade and have supported some of the largest data warehouses and intelligent data efforts within the federal government.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Massive data set integration – structured, unstructured, semi-structured
- Extract, Load and Transform (ELT) using custom and COTS tools
- Data management
- Data model and database development
- Metadata development
- Data warehousing
- Business Intelligence (BI)Predictive data analytics, dashboards
- Cloud solutions integration
- Sybase IQ, DB2 (UDB and Mainframe), Oracle, SQL Server, Teradata and legacy systems
- Hadoop, NoSQL databases (MongoDB, graph databases)
We’ve developed the following apps and solutions for our clients—based on an identified need, tested and refined on client engagements and not driven by a specific contract requirement.
AssetManager is an enterprise asset management tool that works on standard mobile phones and devices, conforming to government and industrial security standards. It replaces a whole set of costly and dedicated hardware scanners, laptops and other hardware, offering a multi-fold return on investment (ROI).
Brillient can automate almost all mundane, repetitive, and routine tasks currently performed by humans using our Robotic Process Automation (RPA)-, Artificial Intelligence (AI)-, and Intelligent Automation (IA)- based software solutions and an implementation service, which we call “Bots in Seats™”. Our Bots in Seats™ service replicates human actions in performing a process and, as a result, can automate most “hand work” that is repetitive, monotonous, and rules based. This, in turn, frees up people to focus on more complex, value-added tasks.
Bots in Seats™ is a service designed to provide the customer the best possible return on investment (ROI). The ROI for using Bots-in-Seats™ rather than the classic “Butts-in-Seats” is compelling. Typically, processes that require hundreds of thousands of labor-hours per year can be completed using Bots-in-Seats™ in minutes, with zero-to-minimal human interaction. What is extraordinary is realizing these significant time savings requires a very low-cost investment in RPA. This creates ROIs that are “no brainers”.
BRAINS® (Brillient Records Analytics and INformation System) is an internally funded, innovative solution from the Brillient Innovation Labs. It is a cloud based, highly scalable (with instances and number of users) solution with a light web front end which is secure. BRAINS® is used to capture work metrics on business process management contracts such as records management, operational support and program support type contracts. The working staff are mapped to CLINs, tasks and work sites as well as the management hierarchy (who reports to what supervisors). Hourly work metrics are captured along with time spent on those tasks.
BRAINS® collates the data and through a separate management interface provides supervisors and project managers with detailed reports and dashboards which allows them to evaluate staff productivity, staff requirement with spikes in work volumes and flex the workforce to move staff to the tasks where labor is required. A separate admin interface facilitates user/role management, adding/deleting CLINs and tasks and various other administrative functions.
BRAINS® also provides full transparency and reports to Government clients on the overall health of the contract and performance. BRAINS® is designed with a generic data model that allows it to be adapted and cloned to any number of new contracts. In the near future, Brillient plans to offer BRAINS® as a COTS product to any company or agency that requires these capabilities.
Brillient’s team of experts has combined their experience with their deep domain knowledge to develop Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing solutions that help guide our clients through BI tool selection.
We take a “bottom-up” approach to scoring vendors on features, capabilities, market presence and financial viability, with weighted scores based on the client’s specific needs. With a simple easy-to-use excel format, the BI Vendor Selection Tool is flexible and efficient for augmenting new vendor information. This tool directly generates positive results for our clients, including time and cost saving benefits.
CONEE™ (CONtinuous Enrichment Engine) performs vertical enrichment (extracting more accurate data from records) and horizontal enrichment (enhancing quality of data through combining with one or more of different datasets) to drive incremental quality and insight.
CROVD™ (CROwd Validation of Data) is a collaborative web application embedding crowdsourcing capabilities that allows subject matter experts (SMEs) and citizen validators to determine the accuracy of the digitalization results, identify issues, and propose corrections to make the digitalization of data more accurate.
Data encryption converts data into a jumble of numbers and letters that can only be deciphered if a user possesses the right “key.” Data masking, on the other hand, protects information by creating new data that is realistic and looks like the original, but is completely different. Data masking is valuable for a number of use cases: software testing, obscuring certain information from different levels of employees (e.g. a call center), and protecting user information from hacks or security breaches.
Brillient’s integrated set of data masking tools help you discover, mask and analyze sensitive information.
CX Discover: Significantly faster than manual searching, CX Discover allows users to explore and identify PII/sensitive data.
CX Mask: Allows users to utilize “transformers” to mask data in batch mode or on-demand as well as create masked copies of entire databases.
Data Masking as a Service: Brillient can handle all data discovery, analysis and masking for our clients, removing the need for investments in hardware, software licensing or dedicated resources.
DIAMONDS™ (DIgital AutoMation ON Demand Service) is a cloud-based managed service delivering automation to increase the efficiency of federal agency operations and citizen services.

The results of Big Data analytics relies on the quality of the underlying data.
HARMONIC® (Holistic Auditing Run MONitoring and Integrity Control) tracks the progress of datasets as they are being combined into a data warehouse. By verifying and auditing the data as it’s moved through the Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) lifecycle, HARMONIC® reduces errors, measures data cleanliness, improves data quality and ensures data integrity.
HARMONIC® manages and tracks daily, weekly and monthly data load operations. The program stores metrics in a centrally located database and alerts users when specific counts spike or dip beyond historical norms, triggering a review of the inbound files, ELT processing and/or upstream data integrity.
HARMONIC® ensures that numerous data issues are prevented. These include data duplication, missed data loads, partial data loads, loading of data with errors and missing data elements. HARMONIC® also enables increased automation of data processing operations while ensuring data integrity and data quality.
In order for data to be properly organized and analyzed, we must first access and understand the metadata – the data that describes the key characteristics of the given data set. However, creating metadata is a manual and time consuming process.
Brillient’s Metadata Automator® dramatically increases efficiency by automating 88 percent of the manual processes, nearly eliminating human error. By using Metadata Automator®, our clients can develop an accurate data set in a fraction of the time.
METRAK™ (MEta TRAcKer) is a collaborative application that allows analysts to effectively manage metadata and embedded data fields across digitalization process.
NAIX™ (Neural AI eXecutive) is an AI and rule-based decision and operating executive that determines the most impactful AI model in a given situation and mission priorities (e.g. speed, cost, accuracy, etc.), then executes it and evaluates results.
RECON™ (Federal REcords CONtent Manager) is a full-featured enterprise content management system that is NARA-compliant, repository-neutral, and self-enriching to provide constantly improving analytics.
It is a content management system that governs other systems such as SharePoint, Alfesco, Box, among others; allows for enterprise-wide search and analytics.
REGIS™ (Federal REcords ReGIstry Services) is a centralized registry for managing all government records (e.g. emails, HR, financials, social media, etc.) regardless of which silo or system such records are stored.
REGIS™ registers all records with a unique identifier that allows users to search and track throughout the lifecycle.
Social Network Analysis (SNA) is a method of studying the relationships between people, organizations, computers, websites, or any other connected entities through the use of network and graph theories. SNA allows complicated networks and systems to be represented in easily digestible visual formats so that they can be better studied and understood. The tool gives clients an efficient and easy way of analyzing relationships in massive data sets.
