    • Internal modeling allows financial institutions to leverage their internal data along with the external models and scores and thus make better decisions
    • The duration of the analytical cycle is one of the most underrated KPIs in the Industry. Having the shortest analytical cycle allows an organization to always have the best possible model in production.
