Data-driven Enterprise

As many times before, the enterprise cannot benefit from the new technology because there is not bridge between Enterprise expertise and Technology expertise. New Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies and methods were created for global Internet enterprises. While there is a clear appreciation of the benefits the new focus on Data and Data Analysis can bring to public and private enterprises, there is little understanding of how to achieve that. The default approach is to hire a really smart Data Scientist or ten, and get them “do their thing”. That is a perfect way to score a few “quick wins”, however cannot deliver more fundamental improvement.

Business Abstraction offers training, consulting and resources for achieving deeper, more fundamental change to the enterprise using the new Data technologies.

Client-side Large Data Project Mentoring and Monitoring

New Big Data technologies represent massive jump in technologies. Many sites have no choice but to trust the implementation of their solutions to large vendors. However as said vendors also suffer from shortage of qualified resources, they prioritise sites that have own expertise to monitor their directions and capability of their consulting staff. Business Abstraction can be engaged to be trusted expect, monitoring the main vendor on behalf of the client. Our ability to review their proposals and productivity of the implementation will ensure that the vendor allocates only star performers to the client. 

Developing Data-Centric Business Process Architecture

Business Abstraction approach to Business Process Architecture focuses on Business Motivation and Data, enabling implementation of a Data-Centric Enterprise.

Developing Data Architecture

Integration of information across extended enterprise requires good understanding of the data the enterprise has. Capturing the overall organisation and nature of data in the enterprise is known as Data Architecture. Business Abstraction has capabilities to lead development of modern Data Architecture that take into account Big Data, Graph & Semantic Data, Unstructured Data etc.

Implementing Semantic Metadata for Data Lakes

While the traditional approaches to Metadata may work well for databases with a couple of dozens of tables and in familiar domain, they weren't meant for the scale and complexity of Data Lakes. Fortunately, the Resource Description Framework, introduced by the creator of World Wide Web in 1997, provides facilities for highly descriptive and queryable representation of very complex datasets and conceptual domains.

Implementing Virtual Graph

Virtual Graph is an agile way of integrating multiple complex datasets. It allows treating relational datasets, as well as Hadoop datasets accessible via Apache Hive, as an integrated, Ontology-governed Semantic Graph. Virtual Graph enables "schema on read" pattern - all data become available immediately, followed by iterative Ontology Modelling that gradually enables comfortable use of the data.
