Infor is aiming to bring Coleman into the hands of the business users without coding or scripting. The goal is to reduce not replace the data scientists in an organisation. This is because organisations still need someone to write the specific algorithms they need. Rider explains how Coleman can reduce the implementation time of delivering a machine learning model down to four to six weeks. The Infor solution is also able to deliver the whole life-cycle not just the algorithm.
