The core team consists of experts with many years of experience from leading consulting companies and institutions working with the largest Czech and international clients, mostly in banking, insurance, telco, retail and energetics sectors. Our basic principles are an agile approach, a clearly defined business case and the use of innovative open-source technologies. We can provide supplier and technology independent consultations and services based on know-how that has proven itself in modern IT solutions.

Information Management

We love data! That’s why we are familiar with the field of Data Management. We perceive all layers of functioning BI solution, i.e. processes, tools, models, essential knowledge and capacities – not just the technology itself. We can provide you with our extensive experience in the fields of Big Data, Data Warehousing, Data Quality & Master Data Management, Data Security and Governance.

Advanced Data Analytics

Our core team consists of consultants who can apply their know-how from both the business and the academic world. We fully understand benefits of both classical and state-of-the-art (Deep Learning) approaches to Advanced Data Analytics in application to various business scenarios. We can also scale – very powerful synergy with Big Data is in place.

expertise

Our expertise

We provide you with technology independent consultations and end-to-end tailor-made solutions, a modern approach to Advanced Data Analytics and extensive experience in the field of Data Management and knowledge of all aspects of reasonable BI solution.

Big Data

We were at the forefront of deploying Big Data Solutions in complex corporate environment. We are capable of implementing an architecture that exceeds the limits of monolithic EDWs and is open to dynamic data processing developments.

Data Warehousing

We perceive Data Warehousing as a core BI solution for analysis and reporting. We can provide you with the know-how that has proven itself in modern warehouses, either built on top of RDBMs or Apache Hadoop related technologies.

Data Quality & Master Data Management

Cleansing, standardization and consolidation of data is a very important prerequisite for building every BI solution. The most valuable benefit is the ability to track all company information about parties and products from a variety of primary systems.

Data Governance & Security

Without proper data governance, every new initiative can unleash a big heap of trouble. We have experience with the definition of data operation and security standards ensuring that important data assets are formally managed throughout the enterprise.

Data Exploration and Visualization

It is usually an enlightening moment when we introduce clients to their own data. It often brings many new ideas for further investigation!

Predictive modelling

Product recommendation, churn detection, life-time value evaluation, socio-demographic or act-alike modelling.

Text-analytics

Text processing techniques allow identification of important information (e.g. language, people, relations, keywords), sentiment and subjectivity detection, topic identification or text summarization. These techniques are applicable in multiple languages.

Graph analysis

Analysis of data of the nature of relations (family, CDRs, social sites connections, geographical presence, transactions, ownerships, etc.), identification of influencers, detection of strongly or weekly connected communities, typical behavioral patterns, frauds, etc.

Pattern Detection

Detection of significant repetitive patterns in behavior of individuals and companies, enabling enhanced targeting with an appropriate business response in advance.

Image and signal processing

Deep learning techniques have shown great performance in application in this field. Typical cases are e.g. Image Recognition, Object Detection, OCR.

Operation research

Improving operational efficiency while respecting real-world constraints.

Market Segmentation

Segmentation based on Demographic, Behavioral or Geographic characteristics.

  • Archana Vembakam, VP, Enterprise Architecture at DHL

    We have recognized BigHub as a responsible, pragmatical and highly cooperative partner while building a Data Lake for global DHL. The entire team has an extensive experience with modern technologies, well understands both business and technological aspects of the use cases. This is why we plan to rely on them for all parts of the solutions, including application design, implementation, testing, validation with business and application operation.

  • Milan Štěpánek, Head of Grid IT at innogy Česká republika a.s.

    BigHub created a comprehensive solution for strategic, data-driven business opportunities, based on new Big Data Platform for innogy Česká Republika. Linking and analysing the data, which has been until now locked and isolated in different proprietary systems, can help us to gain new business potential and bring cost savings.

    BigHub has designed, implemented and integrated the entire platform in accordance with all of the top level technical demands required by enterprise standards. The environment was ready to be used within less than two months from the start of the project, including even the visualization platform for self-service BI and training for internal users. Since November 2017 we can, together with BigHub, fully focus on business solutions, including monitoring and improvement of gas grid maintenance, processing and deeper analyses of near real-time data from the telemetry, text analyses etc.

  • Martin Götz, CEO at innogy Business Services CZ

    Maintenance of the gas network is one of the main activities for innogy in the Czech Republic – our technicians don’t need to do the previously needed loads of paperwork as they are getting work orders on their tablets for 5 years already. At the same time, we stand before the question, how to make better and more accurate customer service and how to redistribute tasks in accordance with sudden events. We believe the right path goes through better usage of our current data which we were unable to use sufficiently enough because of the technical and performance limitations. Big Data technology provided by BigHub that was used in innogy for analysing low-level maintenance operational data of the gas network made possible seeing our data way more illustratively and in a context in a very short time. Also, we got many new initiatives for improvement.

    Outcomes were that much conclusive, we were able to present them to major shareholder representatives and it was decided to productionalize the BigHub solution as a whole. Concurrently we invited BigHub to be part of our strategy, making team in data domain, with the goal to overcome unavailability of critical data in source systems and to be able to gradually get a better knowledge of the business important parts. We selected BigHub to be our partner for the implementation of Big Data platform and application for the gas network maintenance.
