Nihilent has created a robust and easy to implement, pre-configured weather solution, Climalytics, that automatically collects real-time weather data, such as temperature, precipitation, snow cover, and extreme weather data (tornadoes, hail, storm cells, and lightning) from sources like National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
You now have the power to analyze current and historical weather patterns using robust drill-down capabilities using postal codes, or even longitude and latitude coordinates.
You also have access to a highly robust data model that has the capability to easily “snap-in” to any data from your organization, to take your analytics from intuition to high value predictive action including machine learning capabilities!
From internal data such as inventory or sales, using the Climalytics solution will enable you to create highly robust data visualizations with increased access to data and insights; ultimately allowing you more confidence to successfully conquer the critical decisions you make every day. Some typical questions this solution can help answer are:
How can I more accurately predict my inventory levels based upon weather forecasts?
How will weather forecasts help increase visibility to logistics and purchasing decisions?
How does weather impact consumer buying behavior?
How can I more accurately design, test and implement: More effective product placement strategies? More accurate product pricing strategies?
