The created platform allows to collect data on relations between workers, social interactions and workplace culture. All this is done in the Cloud Computing environment
combined with Big Data techniques, they allow for the analysis of these data, facilitating the work of human resource professionals. From these analyses it will be possible to detect behavioral patterns and other factors related to organizations’ workforce management.
This project has already been completed. Its development was made possible thanks the
joining of members from the consulting firm Óptima Global Solutions and members of our BISITE Research Group.
