Business Intelligence Framework to aggregate data visualisations for Strategic Sourcing and Supply Chain Management.


Rosslyn Data Technologies has strong ambition to accelerate its growth and for this reason is working with Sci-Tech Daresbury as a partner in the Liverpool City Region – New Markets 2 Programme which is part funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This programme will part fund the work requested below and hence accelerate the impact arising for Rosslyn Data Technologies. Rosslyn Data Technologies is a data sciences software company that drastically shortens time to business insight from days to minutes. Our cloud platform intelligently extracts, aggregates and enriches data from multiple sources to a single view of employees, customers and suppliers for complete and accurate self-service reporting and analysis. We are looking to transform the ease of access to data visualisation from multiple data visualisation and analytics technologies.

Why this work?

The technology project will make complex supply chain and sourcing data accessible to business communities opening up a far greater user base beyond data scientists and supply chain specialists.


A framework for portal development that allows different visualisation and data analytics technologies to be aggregated into a single virtual application; sometimes referred to as a Mashup.


The strategic impact to a business is to make complex supply chain, spend and sourcing data accessible to subject matter experts in a presentation that simplifies the technical detail allowing decisions be made with the best available facts; delivering insights to drive value. For Rosslyn this will dramatically increase the addressable market and be a key differentiator in supply chain analytics.

Specification for Quotation

The deliverable will be an architectural design, initial build and mentoring; covering navigation, data source and visualisation integration, data mining and filtering. This will act as the foundation for the product development of specific use cases drawing upon the library of visualisation that already exists within the core products.

We are planning on a 12 week design to build for the first iteration and use-case. Subsequent iterations will enhance the depth of functionality and widen the use-cases.
