Exclusive interview featuring The Modeling Agency’s Eric King.


In the end, it’s going to cost too much to do nothing. Ultimately, data mining and predictive modeling will be a standard practice in all mid-tier and large organizations

Eric King, Founder of The Modeling Agency, recently participated in an exclusive interview with Ron Powell and the Business Intelligence Network ( In this interview, King provides an overview of The Modeling Agency (TMA), their focus on predictive modeling, the strength of their team, and describes how they guide their customers through a complex discovery process to successfully deploy data mining.

"In the end, it’s going to cost too much to do nothing. Ultimately, data mining and predictive modeling will be a standard practice in all mid-tier and large organizations,” says Eric King, Founder of The Modeling Agency. “The big question will be how long can your company postpone the significant return that data mining can bring and allow your competitors to close the gap or even take the lead."

“The Modeling Agency takes the complexity out of predictive modeling for their customers and helps them apply and understand the process,” says Ron Powell, Cofounder and Editorial Director of the Business Intelligence Network. “The value proposition they provide is multifaceted – avoiding costly failed attempts at data mining, not engaging in an implementation prematurely, maneuvering a discovery process effectively, arriving at meaningful results, transferring ownership of the resulting process, and establishing self-sustainable practices.”
