About This Constellation ShortList™

Advanced analytics and machine learning (ML) help companies go beyond descriptive and diagnostic analytics to predict future outcomes, opportunities and risks. Predictive analysis helps identify best customers, optimize up-sell and cross-sell offers, understand financial risks, choose new products and anticipate equipment failures. Advanced analytics and ML were once the province of statisticians and data scientists, but these self-service options are democratizing predictive capabilities.

This category refers to products that make it possible for analysts and data-savvy business users, as well as data scientists, to perform advanced analytic analyses including ML. The category is important for any organization that wants to take advantage of potentially powerful, forward-looking predictive analyses.

This update adds Dataiku on the strength of growing adoption and continued development of Dataiku DSS. The collaborative DSS platform addresses the needs of data-analyst “clickers,” through a visual user interface, as well as data scientists and data engineers, who can code and use a range of options in terms of notebooks, languages, ML libraries and APIs.
