"Unisys Machine-Learning-as-a-Service not only facilitates predictive analytics, it helps organisations transform and optimise their business processes.

By providing an unmatched combination of skilled data scientists and vertical domain expertise, Unisys can offer unique insight into our clients' business and how analytics can best transform them to new levels of success," says Dr. Rod Fontecilla, vice president and global lead for analytics at Unisys.
