AxisStream – one place for your agrifood data
Data mapping may be described as outlining the current state of play of a client’s data, so that our engineers can identify the steps and processes required to extract, transform and finally store the data in ready-to-use formats
Data Engineering, Standardisation & Ingestion
The next step is Data Engineering, Integration & Standardisation or building out the processes to access, extract and store data in a standard fashion. This could be from a variety of different sources like physical documents, spreadsheets, apps and cloud databases.
At the end of this process the data will be stored in the AxisStream database to be used in reports, analysis and data sharing. We have a growing number of integrations with several other platforms, such as Stockbook®.
Data ingestion involves the transportation of data from assorted sources to a storage medium where it can be accessed, used, and analysed. An important aspect of data ingestion is knowing what a client needs, and how to provide that.
With the data stored in AxisStream, with the previous steps, our developers then use the data in reports, dashboards and maps. This could mean providing analytics on things like business trends, profitability margins and efficiency considerations. It may also mean offering sustainability insights, trends on soil health information, or further knowledge of potential markets and more.
As part of this step additional work may be done to transform the data so it is in optimal format for use, with the analysis in mind.
At AxisTech we look to tailor our reports to the specific requirements of each client to ensure they include all-important insights.
Thanks to technology, our experts can also log in remotely to access the data – as some of it is coming from a long way away!
