Appropriate use of data equates to better decision-making. Better understanding of data equates to better decision-making. Better decision-making leads to better business.
These are truisms but, in an era where data is becoming ever more voluminous and complex, they call out a whole new discipline: Data Engineering. Data Engineering services from Critical Software helps companies become more agile, efficient and insightful.
Data Engineering: the art of exploiting transactional data to derive a business benefit
Data Engineering involves the analysis of large and complex data sets, and the presentation of the results in such a way as to help a business gain a competitive advantage. It uses data as the means for understanding a business process and the performance of products in service. Data Engineering employs mathematical and analytical techniques, together with other disciplines such as visualisation, optimisation, database engineering and prototyping tools to elicit knowledge from raw information.
Continually advancing technology has resulted in an explosion of complex data from sensors embedded in modern systems in the aerospace, defence and energy sectors such as, for example:
- Health and Usage Monitoring Systems
- Condition Monitoring
- Asset Performance Management
This development is transformational and opens up the possibility of companies dramatically gaining ground from their rivals by harnessing their data more effectively and enabling rapid decision making. The challenge is in quickly finding useful and relevant information across massive quantities of data that do not share common ontology, semantic data models or implementation schemas.
Proven track record
Critical Software has a proven track record across the aerospace, defence and energy sectors in deriving meaning from data. Data that often includes a significant amount of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data generated from external sources (such as sensors and environmental measurements), legacy systems and disparate databases. Data Engineering comprises a combination of analytical, data mining and statistical skills as well as experience in algorithms and programming. Of prime importance, however, is Critical Software's ability to work closely with domain experts to visualise, present, and distribute what is essentially your information right across your organisation in a way that can be easily and rapidly understood.
