Analytics & Optimization Make Faster & Smarter Decisions with Machine Learning

Apr262018

Optimization of supply chain operations has become an imperative, as organizations grapple with customer demands, unpredictable events, and spiraling costs. On top of these persistent challenges, complexities are magnified by the myriad of tools required to manage everything from workforce schedules to resource allocation. To meet competitive demands, business decisions are needed quickly and accurately against an ever-evolving list of requirements and dependencies. But all too often, supply chains break down in the face of unanticipated factors or messy and incomplete data. To drive greater speed and precision in the supply chain, industry leaders are employing automation technology and visual insight capabilities. This traditional software driven approach can help but does not always suffice in the face of a growing number of variables and constraints. Today, many companies are transforming their supply chain challenges into business opportunities with powerful analytic platforms rooted in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Thoughts From Gartner’s Data and Analytics Summit This week I was at Gartner’s Data and Analytics Summit in Grapevine Texas, with my FICO team. This is an event we never miss, it’s attended by thousands of experts, analysts, data scientists and analytics leaders. This year’s Summit was dominated by presentations and conversations about data, analytics, explainable artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning; nearly every discussion came to the same point — we want to use data and technology to gain competitive advantage and deliver real business value, but how? There was a wide variety of opinions, Gartner asserted that “to accomplish this feat, data and analytic leaders must master four key dimensions of scale: diversity, literacy, complexity, and trust.” In many of my conversations at the Summit, I shared my own view of what it takes to operationalize analytics. By this I mean, take all of the data and insights... [Read More]
