Our models use different techniques depending on the application: we use statistical time series analysis as well as machine learning, we use math programming and heuristic optimization, we also use simulation techniques and stochastic models to solve our challenges. Our tool stack consists of fit-for purpose technologies such as Python (Numpy, Pandas, Scikit-Learn, Cython), database management systems like PostgreSQL, MongoDB, visualization tools such as Tableau and PowerBI and optimization in Litic. We develop our own toolkit in a DevOps process supported by Jira, Git and Docker with deployment on AWS. Our project governance and much of our modelling is done in Dataiku DSS.
