River Logic Pioneers Cloud-based Scenario Visualization Leveraging Prescriptive Analytics
River Logic, Inc. today announced the release of EO+, the first ever cloud-based solution designed for scenario analysis of prescriptive analytics (optimization) models, purpose built for business leaders rather than Data Scientists.

Part of River Logic Platform, EO+ addresses an unmet market need in medium- to large-sized organizations across nearly every industry. Historically, implementing prescriptive analytics for planning and decision support has been complex — it's been highly focused on model design, build and data management. The expertise, timeline and resource requirements made it nearly impossible to provide a user experience that could engage decision makers and numerous business users. This has resulted in a lack of adopting Prescriptive Analytics for the more critical, high value business decisions.

For this reason, River Logic developed a platform for prescriptive analytics that enables companies to 1) represent their end-to-end business resources, processes, constraints and financials as they truly exist in their business and 2) analyze unlimited what-if scenarios across a wide range of strategic, tactical and operational planning challenges.

"We see EO+ as the final piece to the puzzle. In addition to our visual, code-free modeling and optimization in Enterprise Optimizer® and enhanced data management and planning capabilities in Enterprise Manager, EO+ enables any business user (from Data Scientist to CFO to business unit leader) to quickly collaborate around scenarios with full transparency into optimizations," said Carlos Centurion, President of River Logic. "With a focus on improving and streamlining the planning process for businesses, we're confident that EO+ will offer unmatched benefits to our customers and partners," finished Centurion.

With the addition of EO+ to the platform, users can now create optimizations based upon different business scenarios (e.g., sales forecasts), assumption and levers (e.g., no overtime) in support of different objective functions (e.g., profit, volume, NPV) while collaboratively planning around those scenarios.

EO+ also offers a unique ability to visually disaggregate information in the form of Key Optimization Indicators™ (KOIs) and embeds Microsoft PowerBI, so users can drill into optimized solutions and easily compare scenarios. In addition to scenario analysis, EO+ leverages KOIs and PowerBI to compare scenarios against targets and actual business results — thus increasing decision making agility and improving organizational learning.

Recent research showed that by 2021, more than 35% of organizations will be using a form of prescriptive analytics — and some research firms predict even higher adoption rates. No longer a 'nice to have,' prescriptive analytics is proven to be the most impactful form of advanced analytics when applied to the most important decisions in an organization. It's the only form of analytics that's able to output a preferred course of action while fully respecting constraints (including financial constraints), objectives and dynamic variables within a business.
