Ever wonder how Salesforce could implement such a revolutionary feature on a well-established platform? With the acquisition of BeyondCore this became entirely feasible, so much so that it is Live and available for use.
Purchased in September, BeyondCore is a cloud-based data-discovery and analysis platform that takes in data and statistical summaries of big data and then uses machine learning to automatically spots correlations and patterns in that data. Rather than starting with hypotheses developed by data scientists, BeyondCore is designed to let business analyst select measures to investigate, such as cost, profitability or customer lifetime value. The engine then identifies and explains the drivers of a measure or combination of measures.
