Expert and KXEN Join Forces to Provide Predictive Analytics to the Asia Pacific Region

  • 04 December, 2003 13:03

<p>December 3, 2003 – Australian software development company, Expert Information Services (Expert), today announced a sole Australian partnership with leading US predictive analytics software provider, KXEN. Under the agreement Expert will provide implementation, consulting, and outsourcing services to Australian businesses that adopt KXEN’s advanced analytic software suite. This is the first Australian partnership for KXEN and marks its push into the Asia Pacific market.</p>
<p>With the KXEN Analytic Framework, customers can answer strategic business questions in hours or days rather than weeks or months.</p>
<p>Through this partnership, Expert will provide its clients with critical tools to help them identify previously undiscovered trends, to achieve cost reductions, generate new revenue streams, increase ROI and fine-tune internal processes to maximize efficiency.</p>
<p>“Increased customer interest in business analytics throughout the region was the key driver for Expert to partner with KXEN,” said Ivan Gomez, vice president of international business development and strategic alliances at Expert. “We recognize that data mining goes beyond just historical or ‘after the event’ reporting to make predictions of the future. This allows organisations to be proactive rather than reactive. It also allows them to plan and budget more effectively,” said Gomez.</p>
<p>According to a November 2003 brief issued by Forrester research, the future of data analysis lies in predictive analytics. Rather than describing events that happened in the past, today’s leading corporations are looking for tools that allow them to proactively plan for future developments. KXEN is well positioned to address the needs of companies to leverage their investment in Information Technology. The company has penetrated the US, European and now Asia Pacific markets where Expert is already in discussion with several leading Australian companies over the deployment of KXEN for their businesses.</p>
<p>"The addition of Expert as one of our key systems integration partners not only gives the company better exposure in the Asia Pacific marketplace, it also shows that this region is becoming more cognizant of the power of predictive analytics," said Joerg Rathenberg, senior director, marketing and alliances at KXEN. "With our combined leading software offerings, KXEN and Expert can make a significant impact and deliver superior business results in the shortest amount of time," said Rathenberg.</p>
