Differentia Consulting Named as a Reseller for Tangent Works InstantML Software

Differentia Consulting, a UK based independent IT management consulting company, that focuses on the delivering intelligent analytics to clients across a range of sectors, has been named a UK & Ireland reseller for Tangent Works’ products.


With its UK base in Manchester, Tangent Works is the company behind the Tangent Information Modeller, or TIM, a breakthrough automatic model generation technology for time-series data.


TIM leverages a breakthrough architecture based on a branch of mathematics known as “information geometry.” Using this approach, TIM achieves one step model creation that includes feature engineering, model training and model deployment to produce an end-to-end time series forecast in seconds.


“We are pleased that Differentia Consulting want to offer TIM and its’ game changing model generation technology to their customers” said Mike Thomas from Tangent Works UK. “TIM generates accurate and reliable forecasts from time series data in seconds, delivering instant value for business operations. Compared to traditional compute intensive approaches, TIM delivers rapid results, costs less to deploy, and uses fewer resources.”


TIM is available for a range of platforms including Qlik, Alteryx, AWS, Microsoft Excel, Power BI, Azure and Siemens Mindsphere.


“Tangent Works offers InstantML (Machine Learning) and integrates with data tools that our customers already have,” said Differentia Consulting’s VP of Strategy & Operations Adrian Parker. “Unlike AutoML or handcrafted models, Tangent Works and TIM have a one-step process that does in seconds what used to take hours. That’s why they call it InstantML. TIM continues our Lean IT approach, to reducing cost and delivering value to clients..”


In international competitions, including the IEEE/GEFCOM 2017 and the Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (TEPCO) and Hokkaido Electric Power Co. competition in 2019, TIM won first place and was named the “Most Accurate.” TIM competed against teams of data scientists that spent weeks and months building their models while the Tangent Works model was built in 10 seconds.


“Time series forecasting and anomaly detection are hard problems to solve. TIM makes it quick and easy for business users to generate models,” said Tangent Works CEO Dirk Michiels. “With Differentia Consulting, we are bringing an award-winning end-to-end solution.”
