Data science insights for validation or rejection of a business hypothesis

Provide a centralised cloud solution with data storage, analysis, dynamic reporting and secure access

One of Australia’s leading building and construction materials group required analysis for incidents which have serious harm in a secure and accessible way. Servian consultants designed a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) based system could which provide an appropriate and secure user experience which allowed Data Science techniques to be leveraged. This approach generated an understanding of serious harm incidents that allowed for the rejection of an existing business hypothesis as well as the determination of next steps.

“This approach generated an understanding of serious harm incidents that allowed for the rejection of an existing business hypothesis as well as the determination of next steps.”

Our solution

The Cloud Data Analytics Environment was designed using GCP. By combining GCP cloud storage with BigQuery the incident data was analysed and mined for insights. To constrain the permissions the GCP Cloud IAM tool was used to restrict what each identity could access and use. The necessary dashboards were achieved by using the connector between BigQuery and Google Data Studio. The Platform was designed using the following tools:

Performance Testing

Servian performance testing showed that the GCP user accounts could provide secure access for all identities and data was made available on the cloud. Datalab allowed custom analytics which provided insights into serious harm incidents and the time series data. The Data Studio dashboards provided reporting with appropriate access controls for stakeholders.

Next steps

The GCP solution provided allows for future development that will be able to take advantage of the large suite of tools available on GCP (such as cloud Machine Learning). The dynamic reporting capabilities of the GCP Data Studio will allow for expanded reports and dashboards and time series data can be included in analysis. The combined GCP solution from Servian will play an important role in the evolution of an understanding of serious harm incidents using Data Science on GCP.
