An open forecasting ecosystem for quickly and automatically producing a large number of reliable forecasts.
Better plan for the future with fast, reliable forecasting.
Streamline and automate your forecasting process.
Automatically produce large-scale time series analyses and hierarchical forecasts – without human involvement. Reduced manual intervention means there's less chance of personal bias in the forecasting process. Fewer resources are required, and because forecast analysts don't have to build and monitor forecasting models for every time series, they can focus on more strategic, high-value forecasts or problems that aren't suitable for automation.
Plan better for the future.
Manage your organizational planning challenges by generating forecasts on an enterprise scale – quickly, automatically and as accurately as you can reasonably expect, given the nature of the behavior being forecast. The software delivers results for millions of forecasts at breakthrough speeds, enabling you to plan more efficiently and effectively for the future.
Produce forecasts that reflect reality.
Business drivers, holidays or events that affect the forecasting process are selected automatically from variables supplied to the system in the visual modeling process. You also have the flexibility to manually override forecasts based on groups that are defined using attributes, not just hierarchical variables. The resulting forecasts better reflect the intricacies of the situation.
