Removing the Barriers to Predictive Intelligence

We drive informed decisions with real-time insights. Our platform drives self-service predictive applications via our Machine Learning Semantic Model™ and our award winning framework accelerates the deployment and adoption of real solutions that can be used by real people. We coined the phrase The Last Mile of Analytics™ – the deployment of powerful predictions to the right person, at the right time, on the right device.

We introduced the idea of self-service predictive analytics to simplify the process of sharing models across an enterprise and automate predictions directly from source data to squeeze complexity out of the end-user experience.

Our collaborative solution leverages big data libraries like Apache Mahout, “R” and SQL Server Analysis Services and our Machine Learning Semantic Model pushes predictive applications into the source data, whether it’s in a streaming engine or data source like Microsoft SQL Server®, EMC® Greenplum® or Hadoop. Even more analytic platforms are on the way.

The result: collaborative predictive solutions for non-technical end users across industries like healthcare, life sciences, financial services, marketing, government, industrial and manufacturing.

 

Predict Everything.™


Our Team: Management

We live for high tech but we also enjoy a spirited game
of Ping Pong on a regular basis.
