EXTRACT COMPETITIVE INTELLIGENCE FROM DATA

A Data Platform for the Modern Enterprise. In the Cloud.

Contact Us

The B23 data platform is an artificial intelligence engine to discover, transform, and synthesize data from a variety of sources to provide unique and predictive 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.

Focus Areas

DEEP LEARNING & AI

B23 develops bespoke data analytic products using deep learning and artificial neural networks to provide predictive insight. Using tools such as TensorFlow and PyTorch, B23 creates its own Places-of-Interest (“POI”) data which is fused with a variety of alternative data sets in order to more accurately predict consumer behavior for over a hundred consumer businesses. Our bespoke consumer data products provide unparalleled insight for stock analysts, portfolio managers, and quants.

DATA SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

B23 bridges the “Last Mile” of data flow for data scientists and analysts so they can spend less time acquiring and transforming data, and more time analyzing data. B23 created and launched an open source software capability that we call “Last Mile” that allows data scientists to access any data set in a straight forward, automated, and repeatable manner. What Ansible/DevOps did for systems administration, Last Mile is accomplishing for data acquisition and transformation.

Data Infrastructure Automation

B23 automates the provisioning and security of cloud computing and storage systems in many of the most sensitive enterprise environments on the planet. Whether using public cloud infrastructure services from AWS or Azure or enabling complex containerized data processing workloads running on Kubernetes, B23 automates the security and provisioning with only a few mouse clicks making it simple for data scientists and analysts to access massive cloud resources in minutes.

EDGE COMPUTING

B23 enables data flow for edge computing devices and is pioneering innovative solutions for environments with low bandwidth or intermittent connectivity. Whether in remote branch offices, maritime environments, airborne systems, or locations where no networks exist B23 is enabling machine learning and AI to process petabyte scale data at the edge using open source technologies.

B23 DATA PLATFORM

  • 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.
