News : CSC Advances Industrial Machine Learning
Tysons, VA, USA, Jan 5, 2017 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced the expansion of its strategic alliance with Microsoft through the advancement of Industrial Machine Learning (IML) solutions that enable data scientists to produce new data-derived enterprise insights, leading to better and more timely business decisions.
Most large, data-rich companies fail to benefit from information on an enterprise-wide scale because they are not equipped to effectively capture and analyze available data sources. A recent survey from PwC and Iron Mountain found that 57 percent of businesses are unable to extract significant value from their information, and 23 percent are unable to derive any real value at all. Regardless of size, geography or sector, businesses are struggling to fully realize value from their information.

"CSC has been working with Microsoft on industry-specific approaches to the problem of creating data science that works," said Dan Hushon, chief technology officer, CSC. "The result is a holistic, enterprise-scale data science and machine-learning offering called Industrial Machine Learning (IML), which improves the return-on-investment clients see from their information. IML can facilitate tangible benefits, such as reduction in patient readmissions or lowering manufacturing material consumption rates."
Hushon explores the "Rise of the Intelligent Machines," among his recently announced IT trends that will define the marketplace in 2017. IML is an intelligent machines accelerator.
Together, through IML, CSC and Microsoft will create a significantly more efficient and simplified path for clients to realize machine learning data stories and exploit transformational insights. This approach will mark the first application of IML on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, leveraging the power of Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite.
"Cortana Intelligence Suite combines relevant data from anywhere and turns it into intelligent action," said Joseph Sirosh, CVP, Microsoft Corp. "CSC’s IML solution harnesses the power of the cloud with Microsoft Azure and advanced analytics with Cortana Intelligence to allow customers to predict potential issues and generate decisions which are then actionable. As a result, companies can take advantage of data that had previously been overlooked and give it real business value."
