Stokenchurch, Jul 2020 – Differentia Consulting a leading provider of business intelligence solutions to the UK market, today announced that they have agreed a partnership with software developer, Tangent Works. The appointment of Tangent Works as a Partner will allow Differentia Consulting to extend their Qlik Data Analytics offerings to include advanced forecasting and anomaly detection capability to existing and new clients.
TIM leverages a breakthrough architecture based on a branch of mathematics known as “information geometry.” Using this approach, TIM achieves one step model creation that includes feature engineering, model training and model deployment to produce an end-to-end time series forecast in seconds.
“We are pleased that Differentia Consulting want to offer TIM and its’ game changing model generation technology to their customers” said Mike Thomas from Tangent Works UK. “TIM generates accurate and reliable forecasts from time series data in seconds, delivering instant value for business operations. Compared to traditional compute intensive approaches, TIM delivers rapid results, costs less to deploy, and uses fewer resources.”
TIM is available for a range of platforms including Qlik, Alteryx, AWS, Microsoft Excel, Power BI, Azure and Siemens Mindsphere.
“Tangent Works offers InstantML (Machine Learning) and integrates with data tools that our customers already have,” said Differentia Consulting’s VP of Strategy & Operations Adrian Parker. “Unlike AutoML or handcrafted models, Tangent Works and TIM have a one-step process that does in seconds what used to take hours. That’s why they call it InstantML. TIM continues our Lean IT approach, to reducing cost and delivering value to clients..”
In international competitions, including the IEEE/GEFCOM 2017 and the Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (TEPCO) and Hokkaido Electric Power Co. competition in 2019, TIM won first place and was named the “Most Accurate.” TIM competed against teams of data scientists that spent weeks and months building their models while the Tangent Works model was built in 10 seconds.
