In our previous article we have showed you how you can make your daily work easier with the right solution. The optimal support of different data science languages, a scalable environment for the best possible performance, the management of analysis projects and relevant users, as well as the monitoring and parameterization of execution: you have found a solution that gives you space and helps you never lose passion for your job.
But there is still something else: the expectation of colleagues, superiors and customers. Wouldn’t it be great if there is also something for it? A solution that helps you to master the balancing act between complex analyses and constantly changing demands of your environments.
Make data science, not bureaucracy: your colleagues in the departments have finally realized that there is more to data than they have always suspected. The upside: your popularity is steadily increasing. The downside: your workload increases too. New inquires, requests about the current project status and further inquiry about results or internal coordination in the data science team: your e-mail inbox often has more traffic than a big city at rush hour. It would be nice to have a solution that gives everyone involved an overview. A workflow that creates transparent processes from the use case definition, the development and optimization of statistical models to the presentation of results and productive use of algorithms in order to free you from overhead. In addition, the workflow promotes cross-functional collaboration to answer data-driven questions.
Data – analysis – results: everything united in one tool without media discontinuity.
Be productive and show everyone your work, customized and as often as they want: a data science workflow which has been made for this purpose can show your processes clearly and display the status of a request. But there it is, the yearning of people for whom python is only a species of snake and R seems to be just an ordinary letter in the alphabet. The yearning for visualizations – colorful, interactive and self-explanatory. Therefore, you need a tool that can make your analysis results easily available. A solution in which everyone has individual authorizations and can access the results that are necessary for their work. A solution which allows sharing and evaluating results – directly via deep links for accessing views, filters and data easily. Equipped with intuitively usable filter and configuration options so that every user is enabled to draw the maximum information gain from your analyses. You would finally be relieved of generating new reports and your analysis results would get the best possible presentation in the interactive dashboards. Because both, the design and the content, would be freely configurable.
Capture even the most complex results with ease and be able to perform ad-hoc analyses by yourself: this not only attracts attention, but also the enthusiasm of your colleagues, superiors and customers.
Never without my IDE: RStudio, Jupyter, PyCharm or Spyder: The integrated development environment of your choice belongs to you, like data management to the analysis project. So, if there really is a solution that can do all everything described then it should also allow you to work in the familiar development environment via an interface. Furthermore, the interface should also make data access easier for you. After all, you need exactly the data for your analyses that an expert has defined as relevant – quickly and easily.
If you have already read the first part, then you can guess it: once again your wishes have been granted.
We at eoda have put our experience from analysis projects and our knowledge regarding everyday challenges and stumbling blocks of your work into one solution: the eoda | data science portal. Evaluate, visualize and link data – the eoda | data science portal brings data science into your company’s daily business. Combine your analytical know-how with your company’s internal knowledge and redefine the limits of reporting. The eoda | data science portal is the collaborative platform that brings you together with people from other departments and helps you to work even more solution-oriented and interactive.
As data scientists, all of you have similar tasks and similar requirements to fulfill, but of course, your way of working may differ significantly depending on the specific use case and the processes you have in your company. The eoda | data science portal adapts to this. The modular system with more than 30 flexibly combinable widgets – for example displaying and filtering data – is always the right solution to bring your application closer to the recipient.
The eoda | data science portal combined with the eoda | data science core completes the eoda | data science environment. If you want to learn how you can use the core to manage analysis projects flexibly, efficiently and securely, do not miss our first article.
