DataExpress - Unifarm
DataExpress is a web BI dashboard system developed for Unifarm S.p.a., a consortium of about 700 pharmacies providing services as stocking, distribution logistics, commercial support and promotional actions. Unifarm collects the sell-in/out data coming from different pharmacy’s ERP softwares, thus generating a harmonized data stream.
We have endowed DataExpress with a set of statistical machine learning tools typical of high throughput bioinformatics, e.g., clustering procedures for time-series. Machine learning functionalities are actionable from on-line graphs, such as biclustering panels in which subset of pharmacies and sales categories can be interactively selected. Currently 210 million entries are managed from the sales stream within the system. Network analysis (detection of community structure and co-occurrence patterns) combined with geospatial and socio-economic data are being developed as strategic tools.
