Product Overview

Pyramid Decision Intelligence Platform is an end-to-end platform that combines data prep, data science and business analytics features into one solution. Users can quickly prep data for analysis with a point-and-click interface, build machine learning models, easily connect with multiple data sources, and more. Pyramid can be deployed in the cloud, on premise or a hybrid of both.

This review will focus on the business analytics capabilities.
