Unisys Announces Series of Milestones Highlighting Expertise in Advanced Data Analytics

WELLINGTON, 16 March 2017 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) announced today new milestones highlighting its growing expertise in advanced data analytics. The company released this news to coincide with the Strata + Hadoop World conference in San Jose, California, where Dr Rod Fontecilla, vice president and global lead for analytics at Unisys, spoke on the topic of machine-learning opportunities in the airline industry.

Today’s announcements include:
· The launch of Unisys’ Machine-Learning-as-a-Service, a new service offering that enables organisations to predict changes in business conditions and quickly evaluate potential responses to those changes. See release here.
· The planned launch of the new Unisys Artificial Intelligence Centre of Excellence, through which users gain free access to online tools to help them develop capabilities in advanced data analytics. See release here.

These announcements follow Wednesday’s launch of Digistics™ by Unisys, an innovative digital logistics solution for air cargo carriers featuring a cross-platform advanced analytics engine that enables carriers to analyse past, present and forecast data to streamline freight operations and improve efficiency.

They also come on the heels of NelsonHall’s recent NEAT Assessment of Big Data and Analytics, for which Unisys was one of 11 vendors evaluated. The reports analysed the performance of vendors offering Big Data and Analytics services a part of their IT services portfolio.
