  • Store massive data on each user to comply with regulatory requirements, secure it to assure customer privacy, and make the data available to the business all from a single source

Healthcare and Pharmacy

03-throughputImproving the quality of health and wellness is top of mind for consumers today – ranging from nutrition information, to a broad range of user-centric consumer applications. To handle the vast number of datasets and sources, broad user base, billions of data points, you need a data platform that can make sense of the complexity to scale with the growing number of applications and user demand. We can:

  • Develop data-driven health or lifestyle recommendations using advanced machine learning algorithms
  • Provide a tailored and personalized view of health data for each individual you serve
  • Keep a decade of EMRs online to comply with HIPAA requirements, and also make that data available for analysis alongside generic industry data and new patient data
  • Prevent adverse effects using the massive trial data available on thousands of drugs, millions of compounds, and countless individual genetic variations
  • Personalize healthcare and minimize unnecessary ED visits by collecting and storing patient data from remote, wearable sensors in real time

The Social Media Pattern

05-nativeEPSoft Technologies is dedicated to using Big Data to figure out what customers are saying about you and what they are saying about your competition. We can use this newly found insight to figure out how this sentiment impacts the decisions you are making and the way your company engages. More specifically, we can determine how sentiment is impacting sales, the effectiveness or receptiveness of your marketing campaigns, the accuracy of your marketing mix (product, price, promotion, and placement), and so on. We can:

  • Answer what is ultimately a more important question: “Why are people saying what they are saying and behaving in the way they are behaving?”
  • Look at the interaction of what people are doing with their behaviors, current financial trends, actual transactions that you are seeing internally, and so on
  • Get to the core of why your customers are behaving a certain way that requires merging information types in cost-effective ways, especially during the initial exploration phase of the project

Retail

data-lake-analytics-02Retailers must analyze a great deal of data for each marketing campaign to meet time-sensitive windows of opportunity for converting customer purchases and improving operational processes. We can:

The Call Center Mantra

EPSoft Technologies is dedicated to knowing that the time/quality resolution metrics and trending discontent patterns for a call center weeks after the fact. If someone is on the phone and has a problem, we will know about it right away from an enterprise perspective and we will know that people are calling about this new topic or that we are seeing new and potentially disturbing trending in your interactions within a specific segment.

We have been asked by a number of clients for help with this pattern, which is well suited for Big Data. Call centers of all kinds want to find better ways to process information to address what is going on in the business with lower latency. This is a really interesting Big Data use case, because it uses analytics-in-motion and analytics-at-rest. We can:

  • Build these models and find out what is interesting based on the conversations that have been converted from voice to text or with voice analysis as the call is happening by using in-motion analytics means
  • Build up these models and then promote them back in to Streams to examine and analyze the calls that are actually happening in real time by using at-rest analytics

Manufacturing and Industrial

deploy-in-minutesThe modern assembly line is made up of highly instrumented machines, with millions of sensors reporting billions of data points. We can:

  • Improve quality control by parsing sensor data in real-time
  • Increase machine uptime with preventative maintenance using advanced machine learning algorithms

Media and Entertainment

stream-millions-of-eventsTo handle the vast number of data sources, broad user base, and billions of data points created by millions of interactions, you need a data platform that can cope with the growing scale and complexity of your data. We can:

  • Gain a holistic view of your users by easily aggregating data from wearables, digital properties, or other relevant data sources
  • Develop data-driven recommendations using advanced machine learning algorithms to increase customer engagement
