At the Worldwide Partner Conference held by Microsoft in Orlando, Florida, the company announced Cortana Analytics Suite as the new to have suite for businesses.
The analytics platform, specifically targeted at enterprises promises to transform data bulks into intelligent action scenarios.
Cortana’s analytical capabilities are a gold mine for Microsoft which skilfully combined them with the real life needs of businesses struggling with data interpretation.
Takeshi Numoto, the VP of the Cloud and Enterprise Division at Microsoft stated:
“With Cortana Analytics, we are taking years of research and innovation – spanning technology and infrastructure for advanced analytics, including capabilities like machine learning, big data storage and processing in the cloud as well as perceptual intelligence such as vision, face and speech recognition, with the goal of helping enterprise customers make better, faster decision to accelerate their speed of business”.
Cortana Analytics Suite thus becomes the user-friendly complete that offers an accessible and encompassing suite of data analysis tools which embody Microsoft’s goal of giving developers and users alike the opportunity to take their knowledge one step further.
Cortana Analytics Suite of course integrates the namesake Microsoft digital assistant available for Windows Phone as well as for the still to be released Windows 10 operating system. The dashboards and visualization tools are under the aegis of Microsoft’s Power BI.
Data is undoubtedly the greatest business asset. Many have exploited data gathering and analyzing capabilities, boosting the market for business models.
To this extent, Takeshi Numoto went on to add that data is pervasive, yet action on data is elusive. This is what Cortana Analytics Suite hopes to capitalize on. Providing businesses with the opportunity to leap from one event happening to understanding the factors underpinning the event to further capitalize on prediction and future actionable intelligence.
Microsoft’s Cortana Analytics Suite could bode well with real-time recommendations, fraud detection or customer forecasting.
With Cortana Analytics Suite set to hit the market for business customers in autumn 2015, Microsoft hopes that businesses will add to a cloud based ecosystem of Cortana Analytics Suite powered solutions.
