Saama Technologies, Inc., a leading pure-play data and analytics solutions and services company, today announced its Saama Analytics Solutions Center of Excellence (COE), an organizational design approach that enables business units and IT groups to leverage big data and data science, and collaboratively build valuable actionable insights quickly and expertly.

Success in today’s enterprise is clearly dependent on the business’ ability to make the smartest data-driven decisions in compressed timeframes.

Saama’s advanced data science and domain expertise offered in its Analytics Solutions COE brings organizations a new way to approach the data deluge challenge of making the most of the structured, semi-structured, unstructured and syndicated data sets available today. Saama can help quickly harness this data using its repeatable Saama Analytics Framework, vividSENSE™, a unique backbone of core technologies upon which industry or function specific big data and analytics solutions can be rapidly built.
The Analytics Solutions COE makes Saama’s proven set of organizational design and process methodologies, in combination with the Saama Analytics Framework, accessible to organizations to help build the capabilities, processes, and infrastructure to unleash the power of business analytics.

Our Analytics Solutions COE allows IT to create a nimble environment for data solutions that can quickly provide business units the advanced data insights they are seeking.”
