Services
Description

Design your exploration space

  • Define an optimal set of array schema to support your research questions

Build your discovery space

  • Implement research questions as interactive SciDB queries and workflows
  • Support for signal processing and image analysis
  • Data science services to advise on statistics and algorithms

Bring on your users

  • Develop a graphical application UI for selecting data, setting parameters, executing SciDB queries, and interactively exploring results in a data-visualization framework like R Shiny, Spotfire, Dotmatics Vortex, or similar

Play well with others

Integrate with:

  • Knowledge bases (like graph databases)
  • Cloud pipeline service providers like GeneStack and DNAnexus
  • Hadoop / Spark ecospheres
  • Other databases (Oracle, SQLServer, et al)

Get Trained & Tuned Up

Services
Description

Personal trainers

  • Introductory training—at Paradigm4, on-site, or video conference. Basic 2-day training for 3 people or add more people and dive deeper
  • Custom courses and guided development using your data and developing your own application

Optimize your performance

  • Assess and improve schema design and query implementations for faster execution
  • Tune SciDB to balancing the number of concurrent queries, types of queries, number of concurrent users, etc.

Custom extensions

  • Add new data sources
  • Develop new queries and workflows
  • Implement specialized data types, aggregates, operators, and functions to provide new functionality or to speed up performance.
  • Integrate functions you’ve already validated or from other libraries (like Bioconductor)

Keeping you up and running

  • Standard support
  • Extended hours support
  • Remote or on-site

How we work

Our Solutions team has extensive experience and advanced degrees in bioinformatics, image and signal processing, applied mathematics, scalable parallel computing, R, Python, databases, and computing infrastructures.

We’ll work together to define a precise statement work along with clear deliverables and acceptance criteria. We’ll follow through with a program plan, a project email list, a shared on-line project space, and regular program meetings. We provide most services remotely, given remote access to your on-premises installation or cloud service. On-site support is provided as needed. We’ll scope out your services and quote project-based pricing.
