About This Constellation ShortList™

Data science and machine learning (ML) help companies go beyond descriptive and diagnostic analytics to predict future outcomes, op- portunities and risks. Predictive analysis helps identify best custom- ers, optimize upsell and cross-sell offers, understand financial risks, choose new products and anticipate equipment failures. Advanced analytics and ML techniques 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.

TIBCO Data Science has been added to this ShortList in recognition of its progress in democratizing data science and easing the produc- tion deployment of models. DataRobot has been removed from this list.
