Naval Supply Systems Command or NAVSUP's Business Systems Center has deployed a new platform designed to support decision making via data analytics. The Navy Data Platform applies analytics to business processes supporting strategic and tactical decision making, the U.S. Navy said Tuesday.
"Navy Data Platform is supply-chain focused data analytics for NAVSUP and is important because our mission is data-driven," said Kurt Wendelken, assistant commander of NAVSUP Supply Chain Technology/Systems Integration. The platform features self-service analytics, allowing users with no extensive statistics expertise to leverage data. NDP does this by delivering a secure hosting environment, software access, data access control and compatibility with organization-specific data.
“Users can access data, run queries and build leadership reports on demand without the wait of developing new systems," said Tom Wirfel, data strategy lead for NAVSUP BSC. Wirfel added that users may examine NDP-generated reports to interpret causations and correlations. Navy personnel may undergo an identity management process with NAVSUP BSC to gain NDP access.
