ZERO.ONE.DATA uncovers hidden data treasures

DB Systel's first in-house start-up breaks through the structural data barriers. It utilises the unlimited, intragroup data pools for ingenious products offering tremendous potential – such as the data lake.

Data mountains in all business units are growing in the age of digitalisation. Data is collected, stored, yet seldom linked intelligently and reused. ZERO.ONE.DATA aims to uncover new correlations in integrated data pools and to derive innovative business models from this data.

Launched as a small, efficient team, ZERO.ONE.DATA now comprises 70 employees outside the Group structures, focussing on topics such as big data, data mining and predictive analytics. The team consists of agile unconventional thinkers with many years of expertise; individuals that are passionately interested in analysing existing data, looking for new data, combining data and identifying potential. The results are displayed in dashboards, which can be tailored at any time to customer needs.

You benefit from our ideas

Displaying data streams is often already a major step toward understanding processes and provides some initial insights. In the disparate use cases, key performance indicators, for instance, can be displayed that improve the decision-making basis, help cut costs and enhance efficiency. In addition, testing and fine-tuning can be done rapidly and affordably. And so, increasing volumes of data generate increasing business benefit.
