LigaData works with enterprises around the world to facilitate true digital transformation.

LigaData’s industrial-grade continuous decisioning systems deliver an integrated data fabric fit for best-of-breed analytics and the latest in AI and RPA.


Our data products provide decisioning insight, whoever (or whatever) you are...


Our Kamanja continuous decisioning engine delivers real-time processing, supplying analytics services with input on the fly.

Handcrafted by LigaData data scientists, Kamanja uses extended lambda architecture for optimal processing (with both batched and streaming data flows). Continuous decisioning is critical when…

• A decision must be made in real time
• Decisions should be based upon incoming event data and multiple sources of stored data
• Changes to stored data should immediately impact decision-making
• Model creation is complicated and requires access to many data points
• Models should adaptively evolve to optimize a decision's performance.

Kamanja can integrate with all manner of models to process your data the way you need it.


LigaData's Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution is a networked overlay that integrates and processes data from myriad sources for insights you can trust.

We know how easy it is to get overwhelmed with the volume and variety of data generated by external and internal sources, and how legacy systems can creak under the strain (sometimes taking their CTOs with them). Whether you're looking for reliable inputs for your KPIs and CRM tools, or building foundations for AI implementations, you'll need data that is clean, accessible and understood.

Using our own Kamanja decisioning engine and best-of-breed open source software, LigaData helps you identify the use cases which will deliver most business impact, and works with your teams to extract, process and deliver insights for true digital transformation.

Extending lambda architecture for continuous decisioning

We demonstrate how - with the addition of a single processing layer - lambda architecture can be generalized and extended for continuous decisioning, providing the same benefits of batch- and stream-processing that standard lambda architecture provides to real-time analytics, as well as providing a continuous feedback mechanism relevant for all applications.

Reducing false positives. Positively.

September 15, 2018

Anomaly: something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected. In an enterprise’s Security Operations Center (SOC), considerable resources are expended on systems and processes that can identify anomalies: whether they’re in entity (machine) or human behavior. Why? Because an anomaly may be an indicator of compromise that needs investigating. To ensure investigations are … Read More

GDPR and data breaches. A non-trivial issue.

September 15, 2018

European professionals can hardly have missed the imminent arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force in European Union states in May 2018 (the UK was not exempt, despite Brexit).
