  • Provide end-to-end use case implementation service including:
    • data integration & engineering
    • build-up of data assets and objects on the platform (ontology) 
    • training and deployment of analytics and ML models
    • development of data-rich applications in Slate, Workshop, Hubble, Quiver, etc.
  • Document what we built to guarantee future maintainability
  • Ensure future-proofing by deploying standardised yet transferable data models
  • Integrate people from your organisation to avoid implementing a black-box solution

Enable and Accelerate

Goal: Increase your internal proficiency level of Foundry adoption with dedicated coaching and training by Unit8.  Advance your platform adoption and maturity through the deployment of ready-to-use packaged solutions and accelerators.

What do we do:
  • Acceleration
    • Bring our ready-to-use Data Assets Management accelerator to speed-up the initial stages and avoid wasting time on repetitive tasks
    • Tasks such as measurement of data quality, monitoring the tool’s performance or providing foundations to the data model come pre-packaged in our accelerator
  • Enablement
    • Guide early adopters through the initial stages of platform usage and enable young teams
    • Coaching and training on best practises including: perform code reviews, design data ontology, create naming conventions, design security policies, apply best practices for pipeline scheduling

Governance

Goal: Establish a data governance framework including data management and security best practices aligned with the goals of your organization.

What do we do:
  • Define a data platform strategy
  • Develop and implement a standard operating model
  • Review and investigate security, performance and usage analytics on the platform
  • Automate standard operational procedures including use case or data onboarding
  • Establish a model catalog to facilitate the lifecycle management of ML models

  • Security and compliance – Security, compliance and data access monitoring

Foundry Accelerators

What are accelerators by Unit8?
Unit8 accelerators are drop and deploy applications and workflows designed to streamline operations on Palantir Foundry and help you see valuable returns quicker.

 

ACCELERATOR #1

Data assets management
This accelerator allows us to speed-up the initial implementation steps at the beginning of any project (i.e. data quality check, model performance monitoring, tools to lay foundations to build data models)

What does it do:
  • manage, evolve and grow data assets with confidence
  • strong guidelines for working with data assets to ensure common understanding
  • significant reduction in communication overhead
  • centralised, accessible data catalogue

ACCELERATOR #2

Performance and cost optimisation
This accelerator combines best-practices and tools we developed to optimise job execution time and reduce platform operating costs

What does it do:

Rapid growth of adoption and usage on Foundry platform often leads to resource contention and uncontrollable explosion of cloud infrastructure costs. Unit8’s Performance and Cost optimisation accelerator combines operational data from the platform to gain better visibility on resources utilisation and continuously manage and optimise costs.

  • quantify and attribute incurred costs to users & projects
  • identify bottlenecks and sources of resource contention
  • reduce disk spillage and job execution time
  • eliminate unnecessary job schedules

How to get started with Unit8?

1. Discovery consultation

Discovery discussion about your current Foundry needs and plans. Verification of how Unit8 can add value to your plans and help maximise the ROI in Foundry Typically 1-2h

2. Tailor made plan

Unit8 takes the results of the consultation, uses own experiences and creates a tailor made proposal leveraging our Foundry services Typically 2-3 weeks

3. Plan in motion

Iterations on the plan to reach an agreement on how Unit8 can support your Foundry initiatives. Often resulting in a PoC. Typically 1-3 months

4. Delivery

We deliver on the agreed plan to solve one of your identified challenges. Typically 3-6 months of several team members
