It’s hard to keep up with the pace of innovation in the world of analytic deployment. Whether you are a statistician, mathematician, data scientist, actuarial, quant, or analytic professional of one sort or another – your star is rising!, Take recent news from Microsoft’s Ignite conference, IBM Watson’s announcement, or research from the Business-Higher Education Forum (BHEF) that by 2021, nearly 70% of all business leaders within the U.S. will prefer candidates who are qualified in advanced data skills. Pick your stat du jour – but it’s clear we are fully transitioned from the era of big data management to the era of big data activation where analytic and predictive models are transforming the business world in every vertical.
But if you think this is all about the analytics team – think again! IT professionals have a huge stake in this opportunity too and we cannot succeed if a productive partnership between IT and their analytic team counterparts fails to emerge. Companies need to bridge the analytic to IT team gap to realize ROI from the $39b* investment being made in 2017 in analytic deployment.
Open Data Group is proud to announce the culmination of 18 years of consultation and innovation into an analytic deployment point solution called FastScore™ - PR Newswire. Over the next 1-2 years, we will be educating the industry not only on our own product, but on the rise of this new category being referred to as Analytic Deployment Technology. The mission is clear – we must bring IT and Analytic Professionals together to deploy & scale more models, more often, with better quality and greater efficiency than ever.
Join us for the first in a 6 -part webinar series with Robert L. Grossman, Data Scientist Professor at the University of Chicago, and Stuart Bailey, CTO of Open Data Group where we will discuss “The Rise of Analytic Deployment Technology” helping IT and Analytics professionals make the creation, deployment, scale, and iteration of analytic and predictive models in production a core competency for their business.
