CCG Recognized in Gartner's Market Guide for Data Science and Machine Learning Service Providers

October 31, 2017

Tampa, FL- Convergence Consulting Group (CCG) is proud to announce its recognition in the 2017 Gartner Market Guide for Data Science and Machine Learning Service Providers. Gartner publishes a list of DS&ML service providers based on publicly available information, as well as a survey that is run among vendors during August 2017. This year, CCG was acknowledged as one of the 31 Representative Vendors worldwide.

"As more of our clients strive to connect with their customers in this digital economy, the demand for data science and machine learning grows exponentially," remarked Dan Rodriguez, SVP of Analytic Solutions.

"We are committed to supporting our clients both strategically in planning the use of their data assets and with our customer insights solutions centered on data science".

In this Market Guide, Gartner notes, " analytics, data science, machine learning, and AI are the engines for the future. They represent a springboard for a growing number of businesses and a generation of software engineers and algorithmic business designers". As businesses endeavour to utilize data for complicated decision making, data science and machine learning are becoming a requirement forcing governance standards and scaling of people, processes, technology, and data operations. While there has been an uptick in demand for data science experts, there is a shortage of data science skills in the market, which is where service providers such as CCG come in and lend a hand. According to Gartner, "data and analytics leaders looking for support for their data science and machine learning projects should use [the Market Guide for Data Science and Machine Learning Service Providers] to identify and engage with candidate service providers to fill the analytics deficit and augment their existing data scientists with specific skills".
