Verisk are a research and consultancy business that provide data and analysis to the energy and power sectors. They wanted a bespoke tool that their analysts could use to analyse carbon emissions data.

The project brief: Build and host a dashboard for data analysis using R that can be used by multiple analysts simultaneously running different data transformations on the same data.

The implementation: An AWS-hosted infrastructure utilising Docker containers running R shiny on EC2, sitting on top of an S3-based data lake.

The outcome: A web-based shiny app accessed through internal URL that lets analysts build, run and save their data transformations, with automatic scaling, logging, monitoring, and notifications.
