Share Article

In the midst of historically large defense cuts, Clockwork Solutions Inc. CEO and President, Sean Connors presents in an editorial in Federal Times a case for how Predictive Analytics software in today’s Big Data IT environment can help deliver radical military system readiness and cost performance improvement.

The federal deficit limit deal reached last August imposing $600 billion in automatic sequestration reductions to the Pentagon in addition to $487 billion in separate, already agreed to military cuts, presents the greatest challenge to sustaining military readiness that the Pentagon has likely ever faced.    Add Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s mandate that DoD be audit ready (first time in history) from 2017 to 2014 to these budget cuts and there likely has never been a more difficult time in U.S. history for military readiness and cost analysis accuracy.    Clockwork Solutions Inc. CEO, Sean Connors presents a case in an editorial to Federal Times how Predictive Analytics software in today’s Big Data IT environment, can provide radical improvements in system readiness and cost performance.    

Clockwork Solutions Inc. CEO and President, Sean Connors, a 20-year veteran in applying advanced predictive logistics software for heavy industry and defense provided Federal Times, a Gannett Company, an editorial entitled “Sharper Analysis Essential to Predict Cost of Major Systems” that was published February 19, 2012.    The editorial can be read here. http://www.federaltimes.com/article/20120219/ADOP06/202190305/1040/ADOP06
