Project Description

In today’s world in which data is becoming increasingly important, as well as the value of data even more, there has been a great need among our customers to apply this value in practice.

That’s why we are constantly looking for innovative and/or standard solutions that integrate data science into the business processes in order not to keep reinventing the wheel.

In this project, you will design a data-to-value framework for the logistics industry. The framework is based on business value that facilitates data, algorithms and business rules together. This framework must be able to manage data, facilitate trained algorithms, as well as manage business applications such as business rules and business impact by analytics. In addition, it must be possible for end users of our customers in the Retail, Wholesale and/or Manufacturing industries to use this framework on their own in a friendly way.

It is important for Ctac to know whether this is feasible with the techniques currently available on the market and the integration with products of our existing vendors SAP and Microsoft.
