PlexLogic creates Internet services that measure, analyze, and help improve critical business processes. This web site is the home of MetricsCenter, the first on-demand web site for delivering metrics to public, community, and enterprise constituencies. You can learn more about MetricsCenter here and about our community efforts here.
In addition to creating the MetricsCenter cloud service, PlexLogic is a recognized leader in the disciplines of security, risk, and IT infrastructure measurement, metrics and modelling. Some of the major recent contributions made by PlexLogic to advancing the state of security metrics include:
By contributing some of its resources to the creation and initial population of a Security Metrics Catalog and dashboards based upon public data, PlexLogic hopes to kick-start the process of identifying and defining a common repository of practical and useful metrics for the purposes of corporate governance, risk and compliance management.
While this web site focuses on measuring and modeling security as an initial application of MetricsCenter, all of its services are equally applicable to quantitative analysis of of "deep web" data sources such as those currently being made available by the US Government. PlexLogic's first focus has been quantitative analysis of security but our view is that security is merely one of many interconnected disciplines in decision support for which measurement, metrics, and modeling can yeild valuable insights. The deep web and its vast and growing variety of heterogeneous but interconnect data sources represents a obvious target for future MetricsCenter applications.
