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:
