Analytics as a Service
The market is seeing a severe shortage of data scientists and business analysts. We see this shortage especially in the areas of sales, marketing, supply chain and financial analytics.
Cleveland is now Mindtree’s COE, Center of Excellence, for analytics. We have hired more people and doubled the size of our office. In addition to offering the integration services and report set up that we have offered for over 20 years, we will now be offering analytics as a service that not only gives insights, but also provides predictive outcomes and prescriptive recommendations.
