What is Data Fusion?
We live in a digital age with pockets of data accumulated by nearly every entity we touch. Data fusion is the science of combining data from all of these disparate sources in order to achieve inferences. The result is that fused data is more informative, more valuable, and provides significant insight to current and future behaviors.

Data aggregation is the process of combining multiple databases to get a more comprehensive profile of an individual or company. 
GridGlo® solutions are created by applying proprietary algorithms and
data fusion processes to disparate data sources.
