Zementis’ ADAPA (Adaptive Decision and Predictive Analytics) is an extremely fast, standards-based deployment platform and scoring engine for predictive analytics. It is built for data scientists who develop predictive models. It helps accelerate time-to-insight from predictive analytics for big data and creates a scalable capability for predictive analytics, while also reducing IT costs. By accelerating model deployment and reducing resource requirements, ADAPA allows data scientists to devote more time to data science.
ADAPA for Apama® combines Zementis’ powerful predictive model deployment and scoring capabilities with Apama’s comprehensive big data analytics platform to create a tightly integrated solution optimized for managing complex, high-volume, massive data sets, whether in real-time or batch mode. With ADAPA, Apama can ingest predictive models constructed in all leading commercial or open-source data mining tool (e.g. IBM SPSS, KNIME, Python, R, SAS). ADAPA enables data scientists to deploy their predictive models in minutes instead of months. As an integrated component of the Apama platform, ADAPA rapidly ingests data from multiple event feeds, scoring the data and enabling Apama to generate actions, alerts and notifications. Users can utilize different models at different times and share models amongst various Apama applications to support additional forms of analysis and data consumption.
