    Presenters:
    Will Blake, Chief Technology Officer at CRU, and Avi Perez, Chief Technology Officer at Pyramid Analytics
    Abstract: This session will be a discussion between two CTOs, both experts on data analytics. It will explore how CRU uses the Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform within its data analytics pipelines, supporting market analysis and commodity price assessments

Blake and Perez will reveal how CRU restructured its approach to analytics, phasing out siloed approaches that relied on different tools and used the Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform within its data analytics pipelines

Crucially, Decision Intelligence is founded on the principle of helping anyone secure data-driven insights to make faster, more intelligent decisions. CRU put this principle into action, using prescriptive analytics and Decision Intelligence to tackle major challenges such as reducing carbon emissions and other ESG initiatives. In so doing, CRU continues to transform commodity market data into a valuable business asset.

Decision Intelligence is the Next Big Data Analytics Innovation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an increasingly important analytics technology. But AI to date is limited to highly-trained practitioners, and until now, there has been no easy way to integrate the essential AI components of Data Prep, Business Analytics, and Data Science. The Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform meets this need: its Decision Intelligence solutions go beyond traditional business intelligence tools such as Microsoft Power BI, Qlik, and Tableau. The Pyramid Platform lowers the skills barrier by automating the highly technical work needed to prepare and analyze data and create and share reports and dashboards,” said Blake.

In particular, the Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform delivers data-driven insights for anyone to make faster, more intelligent decisions. The Pyramid Platform provides instant access to any data, enables automated governed self-service for any person, and serves any analytics need, from the simple to the sophisticated. By uniquely combining Data Prep, Business Analytics, and Data Science with AI guidance in a single environment, the Pyramid Platform reduces cost and complexity while accelerating growth and innovation. This enables a strategic, organization-wide approach to Business Intelligence and Analytics.

Decision Intelligence is High-Growth Segment of Augmented Analytics

The growth potential of Decision Intelligence is enormous. Gartner predicts that “more than 33%” of large organizations will be using Decision Intelligence by 2023. Similarly, worldwide spending on big data and business analytics (BDA) solutions was forecast to reach $215.7 billion in 2021, an increase of 10.1% over 2020, according to a recent update from IDC. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for global BDA spending over the 2021-2025 forecast period is predicted to be 12.8%.

Pyramid is helping to define this growing market.
