Decision Intelligence’s Not-So-Secret Ingredient: Augmented Analytics


Jeffrey Pascoe, Senior Solutions Engineer, Pyramid Analytics 

Decision intelligence is what’s next in analytics. Why? In part, it’s because it solves many of the common pitfalls of business intelligence. Specifically, it can deliver direct access to any data, deploy experiences for any person, and easily meet any analytics need. But how have recent innovations in technology made these formerly sounds-nice-but-it’s-just-not-that-easy challenges a reality? It comes down to a category of platform capabilities called augmented analytics.

Augmented analytics is a term that describes the more emerging side of data management and analytics technology, including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and natural language processing (NLP). When applied to the right use cases and user groups, these technologies not only increase efficiency and accuracy–they can also bring data-driven insights to groups without more technical expertise. We believe augmented analytics is the key to achieving much of the value that decision intelligence promises. In fact, the Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform was recently ranked #1 for augmented analytics in the Gartner Critical Capabilities report.

Join this session to learn more about augmented analytics, decision intelligence, and how the future of analytics is shaping up.

Use No-Code Knowledge Graphs to Build an Enterprise Data Mesh


Learn to build the ultimate enterprise knowledge system: a federated mesh of independently maintained no-code knowledge graphs.

Connect your datasets to reveal unprecedented insights and answer previously impossible questions at scale.

Join us as we map out how to scale beyond traditional knowledge graph limitations, avoid the costs associated with maintaining a large number of ingestion points, and transition to a distributed construction and maintenance of knowledge graphs around domains.

Active Intelligence: Seize Every Business Moment


Data has a pulse; are you tapping into it?

For too long we’ve had to base key business decisions on out-of-date practices.

We’ve accepted systems designed to merely inform us rather than also compel us to act.

We’ve missed opportunities, missed crucial business moments as they’ve passed us by unnoticed, leaving revenue out in the cold and uncollected.

It’s time for a new era.

Join us as we take you on a journey into the new era of business intelligence in which data lives, breathes and grows in a state of constant evolution within our first-grade intelligent data pipeline.
