Innovation is Eustema R&D’s Driver
We have been an active part of research programs at the national and European level and we have won several innovative projects co-financed in the MIUR and MISE programs. Moreover, collaborating with universities and research organizations encourages us to work constantly on frontier and innovation issues.
Regarding the National Strategy for Intelligent Specialization programme, we have been involved in the sectors of Smart, Secure and Inclusive Communities, Intelligent Factory and Sustainable Mobility.
Our Research and Development Center is the fulcrum of the Company for technological innovation and offer. We have been working on industrial research and experimental development projects for the application of machine learning, artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies in the digital transformation processes for public institutions and large companies.
Big data & analytics
We offer models and technologies aimed at maximizing the value of company data, organizing them to be available for analytics and business insights.
We develop projects for the real-time analysis of structured and non-structured data from open Web sources.
We experiment with Big Data & Analytics techniques and algorithms in the area of Natural Language Processing.
We correlate different sources of information (data and text) for the analysis of anomalous behaviour (Anomaly Detection), prevention of risk situations and anti-fraud.
Thanks to experimentation environments and self-service analytics tools, we implement techniques and models of automatic learning integrated directly into operational or vertical processes.
The AI has been a support element in the strategies of companies and public sector. Our challenge is to guide customers in this transformation. We integrate the principles of Knowledge Engineering with new technological advances of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. We apply technologies and machine learning algorithms to the content and document life cycle (Enterprise Content Management) in order to extract knowledge, classification and automatic meta-dating as well as automatic correlation of information within Web portals and document platforms. We develop tools to support the enhancement of knowledge within enterprise collaboration platforms (Enterprise Social Collaboration).
Machine learning & artificial intelligence
Blockchain & distributed ledger
We experiment with the use of blockchain technology within administrative and documentary processes for the secure notarization of process and transaction steps (for example in e-procurement). In Knowledge Management systems we use blockchain technology for end-to-end encryption of confidential information and documents.
The use of the blockchain has also been applied to tourist and cultural circuits of Smart Cities in order to enhance the “ancillary” services, the development of service networks and the strengthening of the local economy through “crypto-token”.
Moreover, the association of the secure-by-design features of the blockchain to the privacy-by-design processes guarantees the correct processing of personal data and attributes from a Digital Single Market perspective.
The contextualization on the geographical position of the applications and the availability of a large quantity of georeferenced data have recently allowed realizing new services and to improve and customize the customer experience.
Eustema is equipped with a GIS competence center supported by R&D. It identifies open and interoperable data that guides the development of data-driven applications and both efficient and effective technologies in order to access and analyze geographical information. The R&D center works on pre-competitive solutions in the area of Early Warning, Destination Management System, Infomobility and Weather.
The R&D team has adopted solutions that allow:
• navigating and managing information through a unified and extensible model;
• sharing information about cyber threats;
• monitoring the analytics about users’ behavior, traffic and network events in order to define predictive models and to detect anomalies regarding current threats and attacks.
In order to reduce strategic risks (related to individual or corporate reputation), we have developed an OSInt solution for the analysis of open sources that uses a multi-level software architecture focused on a semantic engine in order to extract relevant information from multilingual content.
Eustema R&D is involved in the research and proposition of models and solutions that support and guide IT Modernization.
Our challenge is to guide customers towards the modernization of their IT organizations using a holistic process that involves every aspect of the IT environment. Our solutions range from Application Modernization by cloud-first architectural approaches and micro services, to Infrastructure Modernization such as the use of Cloud and DevOps up to Workplace and Workforce Modernization like the use of collaboration tools and Robotics Process Automation (RPA).
A new generation Enterprise Architecture model (Digital Experience Platform) simplifies the delivery of digital services to our public and private Clients.
