OCF DATA signs agreement with Panintelligence to integrate Business Intelligence and Analytics

We’re pleased to announce that OCF DATA has recently signed a partnership agreement with Panintelligence.

Panintelligence PI allows users to gain a multi-dimensional view of their business, anywhere, any time, and on any device. It offers intuitive dashboards comprised from in-enterprise and third party data from various business process areas. Users drill-down into different data sets for instant analysis and insights that allow management to drive improvements in business or process performance.

Cliff Brereton, Director at OCF DATA comments, “Quite often our customers have all the answers to optimal performance contained within their data, but due to the sheer size of the data held it is impossible to extract these insights and put them to use in optimising performance without appropriate tools such as PI. This is an exciting opportunity for us to help those clients who are wanting to get started with their data journey and deliver better operational performance. Our partnership with Panintelligence will provide the technology and the know-how to make these performance improvements a reality.

OCF helps to develop AI infrastructure at the University of Oxford

The University of Oxford has become the first academic institution in the UK to take delivery of an NVIDIA DGX-1 supercomputer powered by the latest GPU technology – NVIDIA Volta.

Picking up a Petaflop: (L-R) Dr. David Jenkins, Head of Research Computing and Support Services University of Oxford, Dr. Steven Young, ARC Technical Services Manager and Dr. Robert Esnouf, Director of Research Computing BDI & Head of Research Computing Core WHG

The new system has been supplied by OCF and funded via a collaboration between the University’s IT Services department, Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics (WHG), Big Data Institute (BDI) and the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM).

The system will be housed and managed by the University’s Advanced Research Computing (ARC) facility and is a response to the explosion in demand from researchers for exploring all avenues for applying deep learning to research. For the life sciences, current research includes more accurate sequencing, predicting gene expression levels, simulating brain activity, predicting outbreaks of diseases such as malaria and analysing population-scale data such as those from the UK Biobank study. In other disciplines it includes research into autonomous vehicles, natural language processing and computer vision.
