Solutions

DataSense’s solutions rely on a reference architecture with automation, agility, traceability and auditability at its heart. It all starts with determining the right data strategy.

Data Strategy
Align stakeholders, map business needs and available data in and outside an organization to find the perfect solution.
Data Integration & Engineering
Combine data from different data sources into one unified data hub using automation.
Data Science
Create the intelligence your business requires by leveraging the results of the data pipeline processes.
Data Visualisation
Interactive applications and dashboards to facilitate the exploration and interaction with the data.
DataSense Academy
Intensive training for both our and your employees to ensure they master the necessary skills and methodologies.
Automated Testing
Check whether the project matches expected requirements and ensure that there are no defects. Pinpoint errors or any missing requirements.

Data Strategy

The purpose of data strategy is to map the business needs and the available data in and outside an organization to find the perfect solution By asking the right questions, the "as is" architecture is fully explored, the pain points are exposed and the most suitable solution is sought. In the "to be" situation, the architecture, methodology and technology are defined.

Data Architecture

When you build a house, defining an architecture is the basis of a balanced and strong foundation. The same applies to building a data warehouse. Data Architecture is a set of rules, standards and models that determine and define what type of data are collected and how they are used within an organisation stored, managed and integrated.

Information Modelling

The goal of data modelling is to make sure the data warehouse delivers its promised return on investment. It is the component of data architecture that supports the mission of the data warehouse, to provide business intelligence and enable analysts to form tomorrow’s profit making strategies.

Our open and standardised modelling technique allows the data integration process to be automated. This automation ensures speed, cost reduction and higher data quality by reducing manual errors. This allows for more focus on the actual analysis and more advanced solutions that can provide a company with the insights they need.

Reference Architecture

We use a hybrid reference architecture to build future-proof solutions. Your business requirements change or new systems are put in place or deleted? No worries – our multi layered solution is flexible and scalable by design.

Data Integration & Engineering

Data Integration is the process of combining data from different data sources (applications, files, messages and,....) into one unified data hub. We apply automation to accelerate this process and therefore use the open standards of Data Vault 2.0.
The purpose of a data warehouse is to bring your data together into one structured whole. This means that the integration must be flawlessly planned and executed, and a logical connection must be made to take the data out of their silos and provide a line of communication.

Data Warehouse Automation

Rather than losing time in linking and structuring data manually, we integrate all data sources inside and outside of your organization in a data hub by automating the model generation.

Integration Layer

We have developed an agile methodology with a “multiple speed approach”, allowing us to divide a Data Hub in two main parts. The first part is the integration of all data source systems, while the second part is used for the consumption of the data, i.e. analytics and applications. This enables you to meet your reporting needs, but also to establish a bidirectional communication between the sources.

Data Pipelines

Our Data Engineers build pipelines that transform raw data into ready-to-use formats for further analysis. Through flow management, a single change can be kept from having drastic repercussions throughout the pipeline.

Data Science

Leveraging the results of the data pipeline processes established by our Data Engineers, our Data Scientists create the intelligence your business requires.

AI

By exploring your data and enriching it, we can propose relevant AI cases and solutions to your questions. You may even harness AI for predictive business intelligence, allocating your resources where they make sense and maximising return on investment.

Machine Learning

Systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention.

We empower the business value of our clients by building and training machine learning models that allow you to conduct predictive and prescriptive analytics.

Data Visualisation

A good graph is worth a thousand words. We design and customize the visualization to your own wishes and company needs. We build interactive applications and dashboards to facilitate the exploration and interaction with the data.

Automated Testing

Testing is key to check whether the project matches expected requirements and to ensure that there are no defects. The purpose of testing is to pinpoint errors or any missing requirements.
Proper testing ensures reliability, security and high performance which further results in time saving, cost effectiveness and customer satisfaction. Testing any IT project in the early stages helps you save time and money: if issues are identified early, they cost less to fix.

Performance testing

Performance testing is the practice of determining how a particular set-up will perform under a particular workload. The main goal is to improve speed, scalability, stability and reliability.

An automated testing approach is much more time-efficient and cost-effective while allowing for a timely detection of poor quality of the data warehouse. The Robot Framework also facilitates automatically repeated tests and ensures that data delivery defects are avoided in future output. As a result, companies can rely on trustworthy reports for their decision-making processes.

DataSense Academy

We are one of the few data integration, analytics and automation specialists that has its own academy. Both our and your employees receive intensive training to ensure they master the necessary skills and methodologies and that knowledge is not the prerogative of a few specialists.
