The Pain Center of Arizona (TPC) implements Analance™ BI for actionable intelligence
July 2014 – Investment in analytics, business intelligence, and big data technologies is evident across industries and company sizes. Requirements for better insights, faster access to actionable information, and improved decision support are not the exclusive domain of a few large organizations.
Increasingly, the availability of new technology at attractive price points is making it feasible for small and medium-sized organizations as well as large enterprises to modernize their information management, access, and analysis capabilities. One of the organizations that recently undertook such an investment is The Pain Center of Arizona.
The company implemented a new software package from the IT vendor Ducen and as a result, reaped benefits ranging from productivity gains and operational optimization to the ability to drive continued expansion of the company. As part of the solution deployment process, the company learned lessons that are applicable to other organizations looking to undertake a new business intelligence and analytics project.

It’s been over a year since enterprises around the world had to pivot and transition to work-from-home setups. While some employees are slowly trickling back into the office, majority of organizations have people working both onsite and offsite. This modern workforce has brought out an increasing reliance on cloud infrastructure, an essential tool for collaboration and business continuity. Technology like this isn’t without its risks though. In order to effectively mobilize a borderless workforce, it’s important to be aware of the cybersecurity risks involved.
Machine learning models are often used for decision support—what products to recommend next, when an equipment is due for maintenance, and even predict whether a patient is at risk. The question is, do organizations know how these models arrive at their predictions and outcomes? As the application of ML becomes more widespread, there are instances where an answer to this question becomes essential.
As organizations refocus and restrategize this year, machine learning projects seem to be on the top of IT priority lists. Innovation is more important than ever, and this has led to higher spending, increased hiring budgets, and a wider range of ML use cases.
