At DEFTeam we create the environment for end users to create and access specific reports, queries and analyze data without any coding or IT intervention. Main purpose of this environment is to educate the end user to use BI without any coding or any involvement of IT staff. Both Jaspersoft and Pentaho offer self service BI. Adhoc reports is one example in which the user can make reports without firing any SQL queries or writing any code.
We use the power of Hadoop, with built-in analytics, extensive integration capabilities and the reliability, security and support that you require. Hadoop is an open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. DEFTeam can help put your big data to work for you, providing solutions based on integrating Hive and HBase, helping customers to have scalable and optimized solutions.
The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using a simple programming model. It is designed to scale up from a single server to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, thus delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.
- Scalable – New nodes can be added as and when needed, without needing to change anything more: neither the data formats nor the data load process nor the batch jobs nor the application.
- Cost effective – Hadoop brings massively parallel computing to commodity servers. The result is a sizeable decrease in the cost per terabyte of storage, which in turn makes it affordable to model all your data.
- Flexible – Hadoop is schema-less, and can absorb any type of data, structured or not, from any number of sources. Data from multiple sources can be joined and aggregated in arbitrary ways enabling deeper analyses than any one system can provide.
- Fault tolerant – When you lose a node, the system redirects work to another location of the data and continues processing without missing a beat.
- Avro: A data serialization system.
- Cassandra: A scalable multi-master database with no single point of failure.
- HBase: A scalable, distributed database that supports structured data storage for large tables.
- Hive: A data warehouse infrastructure that provides data summarization and ad hoc querying.
- Mahout: A Scalable machine learning and data mining library.
- Pig: A high-level data-flow language and execution framework for parallel computation.
Hive is a data warehouse system for Hadoop that facilitates easy data summarization, ad-hoc queries, and the analysis of large datasets stored in Hadoop compatible file systems.
Hive provides a mechanism to project structure onto this data and query the data using a SQL-like language called HiveQL. At the same time this language also allows traditional map/reduce programmers to plug in their custom mappers and reducers when it is inconvenient or inefficient to express this logic in HiveQL.
HBase is the Hadoop database. HBase is used when we need random, realtime read/write access to your Big Data. This project’s goal is the hosting of very large tables — billions of rows X millions of columns — top clusters of commodity hardware. HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store model.
HDP includes rich data security, governance and operations functionality that works across component technologies and integrates with pre-existing EDW, RDBMS and MPP systems.HDP integrates with, and augments, your existing applications and systems so that you can take advantage of Hadoop with only minimal change to existing data architectures and skillets. Deploy HDP in-cloud, on-premise or from an appliance across both Linux and Windows.
With Vectorwise a huge performance boost can be achieved on the peak load rate. With a machine of 8 cores/CPU, 2GHz clock, 20 MB cache and 192 GB RAM; 230GB load is done in just 4 minutes and 35 seconds at a rate of 3.03 TB/hour and 1TB loaded at a rate of 2.14TB/hour in 28 minutes 30 seconds.
Achieve a rapid analytic discovery process, quicker time to analytic value, and on-demand processing of analytic complexity never thought possible, Load data at a rate of 2.66 TB/Min.
At DEFTeam, we use Enterprise Architect to create data models for you. We first understand your business, gather your requirements, understand your end-users and prepare a data model accordingly. Many processes meet a dead end before completion because their data models are not correct or they don’t solve the purpose of the end-user. On the other hand, we give more emphasis on your business KPI’s (Key Performance Indicator) and make a viable data model which solves the purpose of BI and end-users.
Some ETL systems have to scale, to process terabytes of data to update data warehouses. Increasing volumes of data may require designs that can scale from real-time change-data capture for continuous transformation and update. ETL can however be an expensive process: not only because it requires a lot of hardware and software resource, but also because well known proprietary ETL-tools do not come cheap. Open Source ETL-tools are more cheaper alternatives to proprietary tools without compromising on any functionality aspect.
As open source vendors, we use Talend and Pentaho Data Integrator to manage, integrate and migrate your enterprise data efficiently. We provide the user with support, documentation and the necessary training for a reasonable fee.
A major advantage that we have working with open source ETL tools is the ability to access and extend source code to best suit your needs and also provide customized solutions to meet specific business requirements.

Overview : Business Intelligence helps business users in providing reporting and analysis solution related to present and past. On the other hand Predictive Analytics help business users to predict future based on historical data using statistical models and machine learning algorithms.
R is a powerful statistical language for creating predictive models, data analysis and data visualization. RevoDeployr is a web services framework build on Revolution R Enterprise Server to support production applications of R.
RevoDeployr has integrated security, APIs, scripts and libraries into single server enabling predictive models and custom visualizations to be deployed on Jaspersoft for on-demand analytics.
DEFTeam has carefully studies the relevant APIs of Jaspersoft and Revolution R and has come up with an integration approach wherein the results generated by a “R” model can be displayed directly in a Jaspersoft Dashboard. With this integration, a Business user need not toggle between different screens but be just logged in to one system (Jaspersoft in this case) and he can get the predictive model results populated in the same screen. Further, with implementation of a Single Sign On, same credentials of a user can be used to seamlessly login to both – Jaspersoft and Revolution R. The administrator can continue to add more “R” scripts to the repository and based upon user access right, the concerned user can run and see relevant data based upon his/her access rights.
DEFTeamConnectR for JasperReports Server : DEFTeamConnectR is a java library interface between JasperReports Server and Revolution R Enterprise’s RevoDeployr. Using this library we can retrieve R visualizations and result sets from RevoDeployr and populate them on JasperReport Server.
Benefits of Integrating JasperReports Server with RevoDeployr
- Embed custom visualization using R on Jaspersoft’s JasperReport Server.
- Leveraging Revolution Analytics RevoScaleR package for building models and visualizations on big data in a fraction of time.
- End users can do on-demand scoring of predictive models already build using R language on Jaspersoft’s JasperReport Server.

- End user has control over computations done in R without knowing R language by using input controls on JasperReports server.
DEFTeam has built a platform-neutral licensing plug-in, providing solutions for licensing and protection on BI tools and Java applications, for specific durations/date-ranges. Not only is it easy to use and integrate in any BI or Java application, it is also foolproof, and any attempt to tamper system configuration to tweak the license will block the licensed application. The licensing plug-in works on top of any BI tool (like Jasper Reports, Pentaho, etc) as well as Java applications to monitor and protect your intellectual property developed on top of the BI tool or Java applications. E.g., If you integrate any third party charts into your BI tool which are not part of the ‘out of the box’ tool functionality, the usability of the charts and its features can be controlled using the licensing plug-in.
License validation is based on the principle of ‘One license for one machine, for agreed duration’, with strong encoding techniques employed to generate the encryption keys. Our licensing plug-in provides protection even against hardware level changes. E.g., If license is issued for 3 months, the license expiry date will be calculated dynamically from the date of issue. Any attempt to tamper the system properties like altering the system date/system registry clean-up etc, will not impact the license validation which will still expire on the 90th day from the date on which the license was originally registered.
All this is supported with detailed documentation with all the required instructions !
We provide solutions that meet your industry’s specific needs, Its helps business users to get the exact functionality when and where they need it.
PAMS (Performance Appraisal Management System) is a configurable web application for task based performance assessment, spanning all departments. It also includes Leave Management, Attendance Management, Ticket Management and Issue Management systems.
Task Based Performance Appraisal:
Tasks in a project get assigned to the resources, and two reviewers are also identified (and assigned) while creating the task itself.
In addition to developers, tasks are also assigned to leads and managers (which can be as generic a task as ‘Lead the delivery of this product/project’). The point is, even the leads and managers will be continually assessed.
On completion of task, the performance is rated by the resource, the immediate lead and the next level lead (or manager).
Rating is not based on bland numbers but an option of descriptive phrases is provided while rating against each criteria on which the task is assessed. The criteria for task appraisal are configurable and can be changed from organization to organization.
Rating parameter values and weight-age are configurable at each level.
Any project specific feedback can also be configured to impact the final rating for a project and thereby the year-end appraisal.
The year-end rating is a function of the task rating accumulated over the year, the project feedback (from the client), the HR rating on the professional values and any core competencies, and finally any management intervention as shown in below image.
Performance dashboards conveying intuitive visualization of projects, resources, technology-wise projects, task performance of employees during a period, etc form a part of the PAMS suite as shown in below image.
A leave application requires approval from all leads/managers of projects on which the resource is currently working. Approval process shows other employees on leave on the requested day which helps in resource planning.
All attendance tracking systems including biometric devices can be integrated with PAMS and a summary of the productive hours and leisure hours is provided visually.
A heat map snapshot portrays resources’ attendance track intuitively as shown in below image.
Ticket Management & QA – Issue Management:
Ticket management for all central functions like IT, Production Support, etc
Issue Management deals with built in bug tracking system. the visualization provided by intuitive dashboards provides valuable insights about productivity and quality aspects.
Integration with Existing HRMS applications:
PAMS can be integrated with any of your HRMS applications – on-premise or on-cloud like Peoplesoft, SuccessFactors BizX, ADP Vantage HCM, Oracle Fusion, IBM Kenexa, Kronos Workforce Central etc..
Employee cost is most significant expense for most of the organizations. Majority of organizations spends months in training their newly hired employee. In majority of cases trained employees leave and lead to expenses for organization with no gain. Also it is expensive for an organization to replace an individual who has spend significant time in organization.
DEFTeam Attrition Analytics Solution:
DEFTeam’s Attrition Analytics Solution will provide insights which will be descriptive and predictive in nature. This solution will provide you insights related to
Employee Net Value over period of time.
Finding high potential candidate and low potential candidate during pre-hire process.
Predicting Risk of employee leaving the organization.
Others Statistical insights like factors with low attrition rate etc.
DEFTeam Attrition Analytics Solution can be implemented across different platforms whether on premise or on cloud (AWS and Azure). DEFTeam has capability in following technologies
Open Source R
TIBCO Runtime for R
These solutions can be integrated with Business Intelligence(Tibco Jaspersoft, Tibco Spotfire, Pentaho, MS BI, PowerBI etc) and other web based applications.
Using Attrition Analytics organizations can build optimal retention plan for high performance individuals and reduce expenses significantly.
Here are some of screenshots of DEFTeam Attrition Analytics solution.
Based on Descriptive analytic we can see the trends of past based on important metrics.
In the Figure below we can see that what-if analysis where user has flexibility to providing input parameters and can run the attrition model on the fly and get the results instantly. We can also to bulk scoring incase employees count is more.
Using statistical techniques we can find out attrition probability of employee survival in company based on some factors. Using this we can identify whether certain factor significantly affect the attrition rate.
The Attrition Model can be tuned up for any industry segment – for example we have created a similar Agent Attrition for Insurance Industry.
Introduction – What is SCM Analytics all about?
Supply chain management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods and services. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption.
DEFTeam has developed a unique product which will cater to the major pain area of SCM industry. The data model is generic to most of the transport/logistic companies and can be customized to accommodate any organization specific pain points.
The input for our custom data model will be csv files, irrespective of the data sources. So, by using csv as input files dependencies of the data sources are removed, thereby making integration simpler. The csv files will be loaded into a staging area. Various data processing techniques will be applied to the data in staging area to perform the process of data cleansing. The staging area will act as the input source for populating tables of the custom Data Model.
The data model is designed to support analytical process, which could be customized to support different client segments of supply chain management. The data model is the heart of entire analytical engine to serve insights of the business processes. The data model supports the following functional areas:
Transport routing analytics for different options of 3rd party logistics services and their payment methods
The different tiers of customers ( Distributor / Retailer / End User)
Product shipment orders along with logistics assignment options
Tracking the packages being transported to the last mile by using a suite of technologies and devices (IoT – Internet of Things)
Operational Logistic Reports
Warehousing Depot Scoring:
Depot or Warehouse is an industrial unit where large varieties of items are stored. Value of inventory stored in a depot or warehouse could run in millions of dollars. It is important for company to know whether the inventory is moving or not. Also there are many others factors which also contribute in managing the warehouse which have costs attached to them. It is important to know which warehouse is best managed in terms of cost, and also the value that a depot or warehouse is adding in the entire supply chain.
DEFTeam has developed an algorithm which helps in scoring all the depot or warehouses of an organization. This scoring model will help in categorizing which warehouses are performing well and which are not. This would help companies to drastically reduce costs and focus on pain areas, and also compare the overall value being added by depots and warehouses along several dimensions (like region, state, season, etc). This model can also help companies to identify which product is moving fast from certain warehouse and which products are lying inside certain warehouses for longer durations.
Using descriptive analytics or unsupervised learning techniques, detect previously unknown patterns and anomalies in the data. E.g. Using credit notes data we can figure out patterns related to leakage claims arising from a particular distributor over a period of time. Results of the fraud analysis can be presented using various visualizations or reports.
Using various machine learning and statistical techniques DEFTeam can help indentifying suspicious activities related to distributors and other internal supervisors and employees.
Transport Routing Algorithm:
Transportation can be a huge cost within an organization’s logistics system. Managing your freight takes huge amount of time and finding the optimal path for the vehicle is a time consuming and cumbersome task.
DEFTeam can help in Planning and optimization of routes which also involves finding the shortest path. We will Considering various supply chain data parameters into account to help in finding the latest available route.
Each and every trip may have multiple routes, route optimization analysis will help in creating optimized route which will save time and money.
Additionally, reporting of the route taken by a truck pictorially depicted on a map will help confirm the route ACTUALLY taken by a truck. E.g., if a transporter claims to have taken a long route of 1800 KM and charges accordingly but in reality the route that was taken was 1600 KM, this can be tracked by the visual depiction of the entire point-to-point route tracked on the map.
Route trace between any two nodes :
Hub and Spoke Route Model Path :

Tracking Suite of technologies and devices(IoT – Internet of Things):
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an environment in which devices or people are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems. Using internet of things in logistics, supply chains can operate faster, cheaper and better to meet customer expectations.
Most of the logistic resources like containers, tractors, trucks, ships and airplanes are outsourced with many hand-offs in transit. Cost reduction is a perpetual goal of resource owners and service providers in this complex global network of eco-systems. Collection of data and processing the collected data to provide visibility are a significant part of the total cost.
DEFTeam is working on devices and sensors which will help in collecting and processing real time data using Information system without human intervention. This means that a consumer/Organization can track the shipment at any given point of time. Few features of the device will be as follows:
Continuous tracking goods positioning with unique ID.
Each device has real time connectivity over GSM network.
Each device can communicate over GPS and provide approx location information +/- 10 mts.
Low battery alarm indication.
