Qualitative and quantitative content analysis is a time-consuming and tedious process, involving manually reading, organizing, and coding of the text data. There is also a risk of getting inconsistencies in the coding, especially when several researchers are involved.
Dcipher Analytics allows users to quickly and efficiently organize, explore, and code their text data. It utilizes AI technology to structure the qualitative research process, speeding up the analysis and making it more enjoyable. Dcipher Analytics can handle a variety of text data sources, such as survey responses, essays, social media posts, interview transcripts, and reports. The platform helps users cluster similar texts and explore their meanings and narratives, providing a comprehensive overview of the data, including quantitative measures as well as qualitative descriptions.

How to run a content analysis through Dcipher Analytics
Step 1: Run a content landscaping workflow
Log into your Dcipher Analytics account, go to “Dcipher Workflows”, and select the Content Landscaping workflow you’re interested in. You can choose between the following content landscaping workflows, depending on your source of interest:
Content landscaping of PDF reports (coming soon)
Content landscaping of Excel-based text data (coming soon)
Click “Use this workflow” and follow the instructions in the workflow wizard. The wizard guides you through the process of setting up the workflow. At the end of the Wizard, click “Run workflow” to start the workflow run and wait for the results to generate. You will get notified by email once your delivery is ready.
Step 2: Access the results via an interactive report
Once the workflow is done, click the workflow in the Workflow view and then click the interactive report icon. This will open the interactive report so you can view and interact with the results. The report has three views:
Content Landscape: Shows topics (clusters of similar information) and thematic hotspots (clusters of topics) organized based on similarity. Click a topic to get a summary of the associated information and key source references. This view is a great way for getting an overview of the online conversations.
Category View: Shows discussion topics organized by available categories (depending on the data source), such as themes and countries. This view is useful for dividing the identified topics into different categories, making them easier to digest.
Trend Chart (available for sources containing timestamps): Shows the growth in the topics’ share of voice over different time periods, depending on what the input data supports. This view provides a great way of finding topics that are trending over a given time period.
