• As an IT company with 16-years’ experience, thousands of completed projects, and hundreds of clients all over the world, DataArt has a vivid professional and corporate history. Data Visualization competence center developed a visual timeline for the corporate website with key events from the company’s evolution highlighted.


  • In the middle of June, DataArt announced the start of a partnership with the creator of MongoDB, 10gen. Within this collaboration DataArt developed a new visualization demo app, a risk reporting suite for Open Protocol Enabling Risk Aggregation (OPERA) that allows investors to integrate data sources, aggregate investment exposures, and proactively manage risks. The prototype was presented at SIFMA Tech in New York. In this blog post I’m going to reveal some data visualization details of the app.


  • As a multinational company with offices in five countries and about 1,000 employees, DataArt has a wide range of specialists across multiple technologies. Hundreds of projects are in development at any given time. But when the time for a new project comes we need free up specialized and qualified developers to work on it in order to meet the requirements quickly and effectively.

    The “Bench” is our special feature, when specialists are placed ready to take up new projects immediately. This bench is always maintained at a suitable level.

    I want to present to you this staffing system with an example how all the information for resource managers is visualized.


  • As a DataArt Competence Center Coordinator I’m happy to announce that DataArt has held its second Innovation Conference – a special corporate event to present new technologies and innovative breakthroughs to colleagues. We observe global innovations and then apply these discoveries in projects to provide new technologies for clients.

    When it comes to business process automation, it’s not a big problem to code the workflow; as business rules can be formulated, and thereby turned into code. But you have to do much more when you need to apply these rules to your business data. In search of the perfect solution DataArt checked the progress with a resource called WolframAlpha that is gaining in popularity.


  • In my previous post I presented the method for exporting selected LinkedIn contacts to a CSV file by using Javascript commands installed in a bookmarklet in your Chrome browser. To try it yourself you can download the necessary files from GitHub using this link.



    UPD: LinkedIn interface has changed so the script stopped working properly at 11/20/2013 but we will update it in a couple of days and post another article about the changes we’ve done together with the new script.

  • Lots of mobile and web applications include different geographical data – we can see maps almost everywhere. It’s very handy to use them in variant social area of everyday life – from check-in services like Foursquare to driving trackers like Carpooling or MitfahrZentrale. Giants like Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and many others, provide useful APIs for simple operations, like drawing maps and objects on them or performing the most common calculations. As a popular framework, Ruby on Rails often is used for GIS and mapping app development. With an example from real life I’d like to show how the adding some features to your Rails app can change things and prevent troubles.


  • iOS Sport App For Soccer Fans

    DataArt has finished an experimental iOS-based application that visually recognizes UK football clubs by their emblems. The software identifies club emblems shown on a computer or TV screen, printed in a magazine or a newspaper, or even tattooed on a fan’s chest.


  • Those who spend a lot of time at conferences, forums, and professional exhibitions know how unreliable a link during all events can be – wifi connections become virtually impossible. The reasons are well-known: big crowds of people, lots of devices, and a limited access channel. Frequent interruptions, inability to connect, prolonged delays are the unfortunate consequences of this. To show demos when a link is overloaded is a difficult task that requires a lot of patience.

    After several IT-exhibitions we decided to optimize a protocol to work under such uncomfortable and ineffective conditions, when the data required is too big and the channel too small. If there is no possibility to increase the channel or to use a multiplicity of channels, we should reduce the channel’s load.

    Kinect, a well-known sensor for the Xbox 360 console is usually associated with computer games. It allows people to interact with the console by body postures, gestures, and voice commands without any additional devices. DataArt engineers attached a Kinect controller to a robot to add vision capability – this is what this story will be about.
