Link analysis

Unlock the insight in your connected data with powerful link analysis

What is link analysis?

Link analysis, sometimes called ‘graph visualization’ or ‘network visualization’, is the process of visually presenting networks of connected entities as nodes and links.

Normally, the nodes represent specific data points, and the links represent the connections between them.

If you need to understand connections in your data, there can be huge advantages to looking beyond your ‘flat’ data model with powerful link analysis tools.

Why link analysis?

The world is densely connected. If there’s an interesting relationship in your data, you’ll find value in link analysis.


It’s intuitive

Exploring networks as node-link structures instantly makes sense, even to people who’ve never worked with connected data before.


It’s fast

Our brains are great at spotting patterns, but only when the info is in a tangible format. Link analysis helps you identify trends and outliers quickly.


It’s scalable

Link analysis lets you simplify complexity, see context and understand detail. With one chart, you can get an overview or dive into specific connections.


It’s insightful

Through interactive data analysis, you gain deeper knowledge and understand context. That’s hard to achieve with a static, aggregated visualization.

What’s the difference between an SDK and an app?

Off-the-shelf applications have a defined user interface and experience built into the software – a one-size-fits-all approach. SDKs give the flexibility to design and build custom applications that look and behave as your users need them to. These custom applications are easier to use and more effective as a result.

Do I need developer skills to use KeyLines or ReGraph?

Your analysts will not need coding knowledge to use the applications built with our SDKs. However, you will need some JavaScript experience to build and deploy those applications. We’ve worked hard to make that process simple, with first-class support and documentation, and consulting services on stand-by.

What integrations are available?

We’ve worked hard to ensure KeyLines and ReGraph apps ‘just work’ in any setup. You can keep your existing servers and code in your preferred JavaScript framework. We also have integration guides to help you connect to your favorite database. Check out our products’ technology pages:
