This analysis shows how often one list of entities is associated with another list of entities. The output presents the relative number of articles and allows for a comparison between the relative numbers of articles containing the two entities. In this way it is possible to cross a list of different events (mergers, closures, product launches, etc.) with a list of companies to see which one is most active.
The matrix is very useful for benchmarking a list of entities against a given set of criteria.
The squares represent the number of results that contain both of the items from the two entity lists. The size of the square is an indication of the relative number of articles containing the two entities, a larger square showing there are more results.
- Entities: you can choose to use the entities from an existing list or entities coming from “Find Out”. You can configure the number of entities you would like to include.
- Database: the default setting is to use the Digimind Content Factory. This can be changed to either alerts or validated information.
- Query: enter a query to refine the results associated with the entities.
- Range: define the time period for the analysis. This can run from one day to several years.
- Click on a square: display the articles associated with the two entities in reverse chronological order.
- Click on an entity (vertical or horizontal): display the number of articles associated with the entity
- Hover over a square: display the number of articles associated with the two entities.
- Hover over an entity: display the number of articles associated with the entity.
Calculation and display waiting time will be affected when there are a large number of entities in the analysis.
Maximum number of entities is 20.
