COMPANY
Opera Solutions is a global provider of advanced analytics software solutions that solve the persistent problem of scaling Big Data analytics. Signal Hub™, the company’s flagship technology platform, automates and simplifies end-to-end process of extracting insights (“signals”) from raw data and converting them to action and value.

Opera Solutions serves some of the world’s most respected businesses in the financial services, healthcare, travel, hospitality, retail, and telecommunications industries, as well as key government entities. The Signal Hub platform touches hundreds of millions of consumers across many leading companies, with a specific focus on dramatically increasing revenue from existing customers while introducing new capabilities that drive competitive advantage.  

The key innovation behind Signal Hub is its ability to deliver data science at scale.  The platform automatically creates Signals, which can be shared, reused, and applied to multiple use cases throughout the enterprise.  Machine learning technologies keep the Signals relevant, fresh, and accurate. This approach eliminates redundancies and the need to return to the raw data for each use case, resulting in a significant improvement in productivity.  In this way, Signal Hub’s proprietary technology enables enterprises to overcome what has become the primary obstacle to large-scale adoption of advanced analytics: solving the scalability challenge.
