What is our main activity

„In God we trust, all others must bring data”
As part of the study group, we will tackle the most important challenges that the fast-paced world poses to us – data engineers.
We are the ones searching for valuable information in the immeasurable resources of the Internet and corporate networks.
We are the ones who plan and design the architecture of the solution that will store and share the collected data.
We are the ones who choose the form of data that will best meet the specific requirements.
We are the ones who create processes for transforming and enriching data.
We are the ones who take care of data quality by filling in gaps and detecting errors and anomalies.
We are the ones who create the data models that are then so beautifully visualized.
We are the ones who create the input for the voracious machine learning algorithms.
We are the ones who have a vast range of tools with crazy possibilities.
We are the ones who speak many different languages – R, Python, SQL, DAX, MDX to name the most important ones.
We are not limited to data engineering only. We are also entering the fields of artificial intelligence and data visualization. We are not afraid of query optimization and performance tuning of database servers.

We are learning new tools, experimenting with different data models and AI algorithms, and gaining valuable knowledge needed for our professional development.
