We know that data and platform management can be a daunting task for any business. From companies who just need a little support to those who need a total overhaul, we provide experienced developers, engineers, and data scientists to address the needs of a variety of businesses through:

  • Building data pipelines into a centralized database or data warehouse
  • Building code to streamline the data flows and reports through data visualization 
  • Detecting and alerting users to data anomalies
  • Developing reusable templates to streamline processes
  • Hosting sandbox or "lab" style level technical environments

Data Anomaly Detector™

Fulcrum’s ML-driven Data Anomaly Detector, better known as “DAD”, applies cutting edge machine learning applications and data visualization to information technology systems historically run by SQL logic. It modernizes data anomaly detection by identifying unusual patterns in live data feeds with a minimal amount of user input or oversight, and becomes more effective as the user interacts with it. DAD leverages a blend of user context knowledge and machine learning methodology to automatically hone in on outliers and less obvious long-term trends or patterns in data.

Computer screen with GUI

A Graphical User Interface (GUI) guides the user through a series of relatively simple prompts and the user-provided knowledge then gets incorporated into the underlying models.

Magnifying glass over a line graph

With each facet of each new record, the tool conducts backend predictive checks to quantify the extent to which the observed data deviates from model expectations.

Deviations deemed statistically significant are noted as anomalies and recorded along with the level of significance.
