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.
