Advanced Analytics

March 2018


The reliance on advanced analytics platforms by companies ranging from SMB's to large scale enterprises is leading many of the world’s largest technology companies to develop a full suite of data utilization and prescriptive analytics solutions designed to impact all business functions within an organization.

Key focus areas within an enterprise are business strategy, analytics driven process improvement, and operational optimization. For example, leveraging Prescriptive Analytics to determine appropriate timing for a shift in strategy, or simply providing insight into equipment maintenance is an invaluable strategy and/or cost advantage.

Buyer pools are not limited to companies that currently provide these solutions as many others are looking to build out internal capabilities.
