Did you know?

Many organizations build powerful analytic models, but most don't see the light of day as organizations struggle to cross the last mile to operationalize them.


Fewer than 53% of the best models get deployed.


90% of models take more than three months to deploy.


44% of models take over seven months to be put into production.

Operationalizing Analytics

The Challenges

  • Putting models into production involves multiple manual steps and processes.
  • Without a structured process for coordinating resources across analytics, IT and the business, it's impossible to deliver relevant, interactive, automated decisions at scale.
  • The lack of proper monitoring and governance of AI assets reduces transparency and trust.

The Benefits

  • Seamlessly move to production by deploying SAS or open source models in batch, streaming, cloud or edge devices.
  • Execute on the best decision every time with explainable outcomes and complete visibility of the analytics life cycle.
  • Ensure transparency with centralized governance and monitoring of all analytics assets – including open source.
