ADAPA

Equifax has been expanding beyond credit bureau data in recent years by providing better access to a broad range of their own fraud, employment, wealth, commercial and alternative data sources as well as 3rd party data to position themselves as an insights company. As part of this focus, their Decision Management platform, InterConnect, was rebuilt [...]

Zementis, the company behind the ADAPA PMML engine (last reviewed here and a sponsor of our Standards in Predictive Analytics research), has been busy making their technology for deploying models based on the Predictive Model Markup Language or PMML more pervasive. They have launched on the Amazon AWS Marketplace. While they have supported AWS for [...]

It’s been over a year since I last got updated on Zementis (their 3.5 release of ADAPA and PMML Universal Plug-in). Since then they have been busy adding support for new platforms and signing new partnerships. Most recently they have announced a strategic alliance between Zementis and FICO, something Zementis sees as a big win for [...]

I got an update from the folks at Teradata on the Teradata Aster platform recently. I have been briefed on various partnerships around Teradata before – they are very active working with analytics providers on making sure that in-database analytic engines work on Teradata – but had not been briefed specifically on Teradata Aster. Aster [...]

Since I last wrote about Revolution Analytics (back when they announced their Netezza relationship) they have added some new management and are growing fast. In particular they see lots of big data experimentation evolving into actual projects. To recap, Revolution Analytics is a commercial analytics company based on the open source R statistics language. The [...]

I am giving a webinar with Dr Alex Guazelli of Zementis on Predictive Analytics at the Speed of Business: How decision management and a real-time infrastructure get predictive analytics where and when you need them. Organizations are looking to maximize the value of their analytics investment. They need to accelerate the deployment process, reduce costs and [...]

First Look – Zementis Update

I spoke to Zementis back in June of 2011 and got an update on their Universal PMML Plug-in among other things. Since then they report growing client interest with a particular focus on real-time decision-making using real-time scoring in fraud detection for instance. They have also been updating their products. ADAPA, their analytic decision deployment [...]

Update – Zementis

I got a chance to catch up with Zementis. I last got an update from them on the product back in May 2010 when they released 3.0 with their support of Drools as well as PMML. Zementis is reporting good momentum with large customers such as the US Army and Verizon as well as a [...]

Predixion, Zementis and Lyzasoft

Interesting announcements last week from three companies I have reviewed recently - Predixion, Zementis and Lyzasoft. Predixion has developed some interesting cloud-based predictive analytic technology - tools to load data from Excel and build predictive models from it - while Lyzasoft has a nice collaborative business intelligence environment and Zementis has a cloud-based deployment engine [...]

FICO had an interesting announcement today - Blaze Advisor, their business rules management system, is supporting Microsoft's Windows Azure platform for cloud deployments (the press release is here). The announcement is a first step only - at this stage Microsoft and FICO have focused solely on verifying the deployment of decision services built using Blaze [...]

Business rules and analytics on the cloud! Finally! Seriously, the folks at Zementis have long had their PMML deployment engine running on the amazon.com compute cloud and have had an on-premise solution that combines business rules (based on Drools) and PMML.  ADAPA – Adaptive Decision and Predictive Analytics – is the Zementis product that manages [...]

Syndicated from BeyeNetwork My friends at Zementis have just launched support for executing predictive analytic models in Excel - check out Predictive Analytics at your fingertips: Scoring data in Microsoft Office Excel. While not, exactly, a high-volume transaction environment, Excel is an interesting place for executing predictive models and I like the way the folks [...]

First Look – KNIME

I got a chance to chat with the folks from KNIME recently to discuss their workbench. KNIME is essentially a workbench to define the pipeline of operations you want throw at your data, typically as part of doing analytic work. It allows you to do complex things to the data and document your process - [...]

Syndicated from Smart Data Collective Natasha Balac from UC San Diego and Michael Zeller from Zementis (their product was blogged here and their support for the amazon.com compute cloud was discussed here) presented on the use of Medicare and Medicaid data to detect and prevent fraud. The high computing center at UC San Diego (San [...]

PMML - The Predictive Modeling Markup Language - is the primary XML format for describing predictive analytic models so that a modeling tool can share a model with either another modeling tool or, more usefully, with a deployment environment. The folks over at KDNuggets recently ran a poll asking their readers about their use of [...]

Zementis has recently announced its ADAPA predictive analytics edition for the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. This essentially allows you to deploy PMML (Predictive Model Markup Language, an XML format for defining predictive analytic models) on the Amazon compute cloud. Based on their Enterprise Edition (which has PMML deployment, reporting and business rules (using Drools), this [...]

ADAPA stands for Adaptive Decision And Predictive Analytics. The folks at Zementis started trying to solve a fairly common problem in organizations adopting data [...]
