Data has become an essential element in the management (strategic or operational) of any companies, or administrations. It can take many forms, and be more or less abundant: “big data” is becoming more and more common. The extraction and processing of data must be simple and fast so that it can be used effectively.
The sources of the data are multiple: it can come from public or private organisations (INSEE, Central Banks, OECD, Bloomberg, Reuters, private banks, professional unions, etc.). It can come from national, foreign or international institutions. It can be internal to the company (customers, counting, etc.). It may be accessible to everyone free of charge (open data), subject to payment, with restricted access or confidential. The data can have many formats (JSON, CVS, XML, etc.), and frequencies ranging from “high speed” (in seconds) to daily, weekly, monthly data, etc.
Our Green Digital Factory (GDF)
dataLearning offers a “Digital Factory” service to complement or replace the client’s internal system information (SI).
This offer is “Green”, as it is backed by Neutral-IT’s eco-responsible data centres, whose waste heat is used to heat the water in the host buildings (by design, their PUE is extremely low), and whose servers are second-hand, which makes it possible to significantly reduce their carbon footprint.
The different stages of our Green Digital Factory are :
I] Data Collection
- Data entry: data entered manually by a person in the company
- Data capture: data automatically retrieved from the company’s various media
- Retrieval of internal data or data flows within your company via an API, internal sensors, industrial robots, IOT, customer databases, etc.
- Acquisition of data external to your company via an API (paid services such as Bloomberg, Reuters, … or open source)
The recovery of data requires the consent of the persons concerned and is limited to those necessary for the set objective.
II ] Storage
- Storage of data on our servers (structured or unstructured data)
- Backup and archiving
The data is stored on encrypted media, with secure access through firewalls, protocol rupture, authentication by AES or ECC key and network isolation.
III] Information processing
- Data cleaning, data wrangling
- Organisation of information, combining available data to create new information, based on machine learning and artificial intelligence.
- Use of different analysis tools such as Machine Learning
IV] Backup of results
- Saving and copying the results of data processing in a secure environment.
V] Information distribution
- Restricted access to online dashboards
- Information sharing via email / document alerts directly usable
VI] Deleting data
- Archiving, anonymisation, deletion of unnecessary data
An example of visualisation using the Green Digital FactoryIn this example, we process data from DREES on the vaccination status of COVID-positive individuals. The original data is available on the website https://data.drees.solidarites-sante.gouv.fr/explore/dataset/covid-19-resultats-issus-des-appariements-entre-si-vic-si-dep-et-vac-si/ Our robots collect the data daily at 5pm and store it in our databases in accordance with their user licences. Once the data is extracted, we can easily make a first visualisation like the ones below:
