Making Davenport’s "Competing on Analytics" real, and in real-time for data-savvy leaders?

In their Harvard Business School Press book “Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning,” published in February of 2007 Thomas H. Davenport and Jeanne G. Harris discuss three things as the basis of competition: efficient and effective execution, smart decision making, and the ability to wring every drop of value from business processes—all of which can be gained through sophisticated use of analytics. They argue that the frontier for using data to make decisions has shifted dramatically. Certain high-performing enterprises are now building competitive strategies around data-driven insights that in turn generate impressive business results.

ADAPA® by Zementis, Inc. is the fulfillment, the bridge as it were, necessary to fill the gap between a business' excitement about adopting predictive analytics as its competitive strategy and using predictive modeling as part of their business process. What happens more than 50% of the time is that projects never get implemented; the promised value is not realized or the ultimate results are not measurable. There is often technical success, but not business success with predictive modeling.

ADAPA® is a highly scalable, secure, elastic decision engine and deployment environment for predictive models. ADAPA® is the "miracle tool" for building competitive strategies making the whole promise of “Competing on Analytics” through data mining insights both realized and sustainable, providing data-savvy organizations improved operational efficiencies, enhancing business intelligence and delivering residual payback from the investment.

The analytics industry’s first and only decision engine fully hosted on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. ADAPA® unleashes the power of predictive models in minutes; Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), pay-as-you-go with no investment up front; with no need for expensive software licenses, in-house hardware, or system administrators!

Remarkably, predictive analytics services companies and independent consultants have been pushing ADAPA® lately in their training webinars and consultative presentations. The results have been phenomenal and they like the residual income opportunity as well.
