The Year of Model Ops Series: A Customer Case Study

Garrett Long March 12, 2019

Customer Case StudyAs a company focused on the relatively new space of Model Operations, part of the challenge we face is getting external public validation of the value we are bringing to the market.  Many factors help in this regard including growing analyst coverage like those from Gartner, Forrester and 451 Research, partnerships (like ours with TIBCO), and most importantly business growth.  In particular, it’s often a seminal moment when a customer stands up on a stage and talks about your product and solutions publicly.  And, I am proud to share that one such moment has come for us here at Open Data Group with one of our key customers, Exos Financial.

Boris Mizhen, Chief Data Officer for Exos, will be speaking at the upcoming Gartner Data and Analytics Summit in Orlando.  Boris will share the Exos story, and our part it in, on Tuesday March 19 at 2:15pm Eastern.  The title of the talk is “Building a Digital Native Bank from the Ground up”, and Boris will share their approach to start and build a bank, with an analytics first mentality.  The team at Exos is second to none, and they are tackling important challenges including how to leverage cloud cost and scale in a bank, keep a data driven culture, and enable their analytics teams to quickly develop test and deploy models that fundamental business impact.

Our companies share a rich history, and we’ve worked closely with Exos to help them build a world class Model Operations capability, even as they have built out their offerings as a financial institution.   At the center of their data-first strategy is an important capability: how to on-board new data and new models quickly, and move them into production and impact the fundamental business outcomes for Exos. As partners, we’ve worked closely both to develop some of the core data science models, as well as enabling Exos with a FastScore enabled deployment capability.  Ultimately, Exos looks to achieve the highest model velocity and model quality to drive competitive edge into their business.

Both Boris and I are excited to be in Orlando next week.  If you happen to be attending, I hope you will join Boris’ session - and if you would like to set up a meeting to discuss the talk, just email me:

And, if you’d like a copy of the slides after Boris’ session, just register, and we will send them over to you afterwards.
