What are Smart Platforms?

Smart Platforms (SPs) combine software, data, cloud, and Machine Learning (ML) to enhance your team's performance. Companies making periodic decisions based on data, can leverage smart automation to improve those decisions.


SPs often make better decisions than humans for complex problems with lots of data. Do you need to constantly make complex decisions?

SPs can produce hundreds of decisions per second for a given problem. Do you need to constantly make fast decisions?

Learn more


SPs can be seen as black boxes at times but they don't always have to be. Do you need to understand each decision?

Learn more


SPs can update themselves with the latest data. Do you need to stop wasting time on things that can be automated?

Learn more


SPs can be scaled to serve very large workloads. Do you need to constantly produce large numbers of decisions?

Learn more


SPs continuously evolve based on new data and human feedback. Do you need your decisions to be continuously improved?

Can we leverage them?

You've hired smart people and you generate a lot of data but everyone is frustrated by how slow and incorrect insights are. Business blames analysis, analysis blames technology, and everyone blames management.

I can help you understand where better strategies, processes, techniques, and tools can enhance your teams.

What changes for us?

At a high-level, it's a shift in thinking. Your teams will stop thinking of decisions as batches supported by spreadsheets and will think of them as automated streams. Your governance model will change as you redefine success and risk.

I'll work with your business, analysis, and technology teams to introduce the shift in thinking and coach them throughout.

Won't my people be upset?

Only if you don't involve them. If you tell them what you are doing and involve them in defining and shaping the new way of thinking they will come up with ideas you would never have thought of, and will more easily embrace the change.

Smart people want to do valuable work, not busy-work that can be automated, and I will help them do just that.
