Did you know that there are 12 factors to be considered while acquiring data from the web? If no, fret not! Download our free guide on web data acquisition to get started!
Being a DaaS provider, we have a very simple setup process in place. All you have to do is, provide us with your requirements, which mainly consist of 3 steps:
1. Sites to crawl
2. Fields to be extracted
3. Desired frequency of such crawls.
Once you have provided us with your requirements, we will send you a set of sample data which will help you understand the final output. You can finalize the schema & inform us if any changes are needed. After finalizing the schema, we setup custom crawlers to acquire structured data sets at scale from a list of sites you provide, in your desired schema and predefined intervals. Data can be delivered in either XML, JSON or CSV formats via our RESTful API or directly downloaded from CrawlBoard. We could also push data to your FTP, SFTP, AWS, Dropbox, Azure, Box, Gdrive. Data output can be normalized based on client-specified rules.
Our service has been designed taking into account the various use cases and the non-uniform formats on the web. It deep crawls the web and uses certain machine learning components for extraction. Client specific normalization too can be added to the pipeline.
It all started with open source technologies, and PromptCloud has gradually built on top of these technologies thus designing its own state-of-the-art crawler that can take care of scale and failovers.
