A concrete step in providing the infrastructure industry the full benefit of predictive analytics.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Zementis, a leader in predictive analytics solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Atkins, one of the world’s top-rated engineering and design consultancies, to deliver real-time predictive analytics to the infrastructure industry.
Government and private organizations maintain large infrastructure systems such as water supply and wastewater collection systems, road networks, telecommunications and ports and the use of predictive analytic tools can be of major benefit. Forecasting models based on this technology allow for the maximization of financial, environmental, and safety benefits of existing and proposed infrastructure systems, while ensuring and streamlining regulatory compliance.
Zementis' expertise in building and deploying predictive analytics combined with Atkins’ deep experience in the infrastructure sector culminated into a collaborative partnership that will help infrastructure providers be more efficient and agile in addressing their core operational challenges.
Adding predictive analytics capabilities to industry-specific software solutions, Atkins embraces the Zementis ADAPA® decision engine as a cost-efficient, scalable platform with world-wide deployment capabilities. Predictive models, developed in commercial or open source data mining tools, are deployed in ADAPA through the open Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) standard. As an IBM Business Partner, Zementis delivers ADAPA as a public image on IBM SmartCloud Enterprise.
"This collaboration represents a concrete step forward in providing infrastructure decision-makers with the full benefit of predictive analytics,” said Donna Huey, senior vice president and business sector manager of Atkins’ Applied Technologies Group in North America. “The ADAPA decision engine unlocks the power of real-time, data-driven decisions within any business process. The goal of combining our knowledge and experience with that of Zementis is to offer solutions to some of the most difficult challenges that infrastructure companies currently face.”
"It is our pleasure to partner with Atkins' Applied Technologies Group as we share the passion for leveraging technology to enhance decision support throughout the infrastructure industry." said Dr. Michael Zeller, CEO of Zementis. "Organizations increasingly recognize the value that predictive analytics can bring to their business. It is our mission to lower the barrier of entry for such algorithms and enable our clients to take advantage of smart, real-time decisions in their day-to-day operations.”
