Sydney, Australia – Teradata Global Services has announced the launch of its Agile Analytics Factory, an as-a-service program that accelerates client innovation in advanced analytics and delivers strategic business outcomes.
Alec Gardner, Director, Global Services and Strategy at Think Big Analytics, A Teradata Company, said, “While most companies recognise the value of advanced analytics, they face a skills shortage that means they need to seek consulting and implementation services from external providers. They need a solution that helps them operationalise analytics and data science use cases, address data governance issues, and create repeatable analytic processes in-house.
“Teradata’s new Agile Analytics Factory provides data science skills and analytics expertise as a service to deliver systemic and repeatable analytic capabilities. It also helps reduce cost and complexity for users by applying data management practices and agile delivery methods across technology and business functions.”
The Agile Analytics Factory takes advantage of Teradata business solutions, including the AnalyticOps Accelerator, and industry data models. The AnalyticOps Accelerator facilitates the generation, validation, deployment, and management of deep learning models at scale. This accelerator moves projects from conception to production in weeks rather than months, reducing cost and time to market while improving quality, governance, scalability, and auditability.
In addition, newly-enhanced industry data models make it faster and easier to execute an analytics project because they support new, industry-specific use cases and high-value data sources. Leveraging this IP, clients can quickly integrate emerging data sources such as Internet of Things sensor feeds with traditional data sources to address strategic analytic objectives, such as condition-based maintenance for high-value industrial assets.
The Agile Analytics Factory uses leading practices and IP from Teradata’s Velocity services portfolio, which helps companies at any stage of their analytics journey, including advising on analytic strategies and developing analytic roadmaps, architecting and implementing diverse analytical ecosystems, and optimising and managing the environment to maximise business value.
Alec Gardner said, “The Agile Analytics Factory provides clients with the breadth and depth of expertise, services, technology and business IP they need to accelerate their analytic agenda. The program is built on experience that Teradata has applied to address the most complex analytic challenges for some of the most innovative companies in the world.”
