The EW-Shopp project is nearing its conclusion and we want to take this opportunity summarize what has been accomplished. During the past 36 months, EW-Shopp developed five services by applying analytical methods on top of corporate data (i.e., data owned by business partners) enriched with data about weather and/or other kinds of events. The services consist in either operational services deployed on partners’ premises, or reporting services developed to support decision making.
Each service has been developed by using one or more components of the EW-Shopp toolkit, depending on specific requirements, and results from the cooperation among the business partners, i.e., the service owners, and technology providers, i.e., partners who have developed, extended or applied their technology in the project.
In this article, you will find a short description of each service, with links to our blog posts and to the video presentation we’ve produced for the services.
