EXTRACT COMPETITIVE INTELLIGENCE FROM DATA

Managed Services for Data Engineering and Applied Machine Learning

Contact Us

B23 Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning automation discovers, transforms, and synthesizes data from multiple sources to provide innovative data-driven insights.

Capabilities

At B23, we build high value Big Data and Cloud analytics solutions that bring data closer to the consumer for analysis.

We understand that in today’s fast paced business environment organizations don’t have time to waste waiting on IT. B23 empowers the enterprise to ingest raw data and rapidly transform it to competitive intelligence.

Capabilities

B23 provides a wide range of managed and engineering & enablement services related to cloud data management, data engineering, and applied machine learning so you get faster and more expert time to value

Managed Data Engineering

Getting data engineering right is a zero-sum game.  B23 can unblock machine learning initiatives in your organization by getting the data engineering, data cleaning, and data wrangling correct quickly, and unlock the full value of your data and algorithms.

Applied Machine Learning

Unlocking the full potential of your data requires an in-depth understanding of how modern algorithms can be applied to data flows. B23 helps customers integrate optimized data flows with cloud-based machine learning algorithms to operationalize AI and monetize data-driven insights.

Hybrid Cloud Data Management

Managing data in the cloud requires a new set of skills and capabilities to comply with an increasing number of compliance regimes and security risks. B23 hybrid cloud codified lessons learned help organizations mitigate these risks when operating in one or multiple clouds.  We continue to observe the axiom that there is no compression algorithm for experience.

B23 Data Domains

Understanding how to unlock specific types of cross-industry data types requires know-how that only comes from experience.  B23 Data Domains are core competencies for specific types of data including social media and news, imagery and video, clickstream, geospatial location, text-based natural language processing, and all forms of consumer transactional data.

B23 DATA PLATFORM

The B23 Data Platform discovers, transforms, synthesizes, and manages data from a variety of sources to provide unique and predictive insights.

  • VISUALIZATION

    B23 is well versed with many open source JavaScript and commercial visualization applications that enable analysts, data scientists and stakeholders to collaborate and make informed decisions.
  • ANALYTICAL PROCESSING FRAMEWORKS (ALGORITHMS)

    B23 helps scale our customers’ custom algorithms on platforms that meet their data size and temporal requirements. We assist implementing algorithms for real-time, micro-batch, and batch processing requirements.
  • DATA STREAMING AND INGEST

    B23 uses modern data ingest and streaming technologies to get data from its source to where it can be analyzed. We select the right technology to meet source requirements, data types, throughput, latency, and analytical framework requirements.
  • DATA ACCESS

    The nexus between infrastructure and data is what B23 calls the data access layer. B23 uses a variety of applications that are best suited for our customers’ data structure, scheme, scalability, durability, and analytical requirements.
  • INFRASTRUCTURE ABSTRACTION

    Infrastructure abstraction and resource management helps organizations use their existing resources more efficiently. Abstracting resources across Cloud providers, compute clusters, or even single machines empowers our customers to gain more control in deciding how to best manage their infrastructure.
  • PROGRAMMABLE INFRASTRUCTURE

    Programmable Infrastructure is the key foundation to building dynamic and automated analytical platforms. B23 uses Cloud Application Programmable Interfaces (API’s) and Software Development Kits (SDK’s) to automate the management of software defined networks, software defined storage, and virtualized machines.

Automated
Infrastructures

B23 uses fanatical automation to orchestrate compute and storage infrastructures to support a diverse set of data flow, data engineering, and data lake capabilities.  From traditional compute, to GPU, and even specialized form factor hardware solutions.
