Tech Data Announces Partnership with Tangent Works in key markets across Asia Pacific


Strategic Collaborations to further build on Tech Data’s AI, predictive analytics
solutions portfolio and cloud-native offerings

Singapore, February 22, 2023: Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX company, today announced the expansion of its AI (artificial intelligence) and predictive analytics solutions portfolio with strategic partnerships with Tangent Works – a leading predictive modelling and advanced forecasting company, Tech Data will be offering cloud-native technologies of Tangent Works and further strengthening its AI and predictive analytics solutions portfolio while accelerating AI project adoptions in the industry.

At launch, Tangent Works’ Tangent Information Modeler (TIM), an automatic model-building engine for time-series forecasting and anomaly detection, will be available in Singapore, Malaysia and India. Tangent Works’  TIM is highly effective in leveraging AI technology to improve operational efficiency in industries like energy, utilities and manufacturing, healthcare and FSI sectors.

Commenting on the development, Bennett Wong, Vice President, Advanced Solutions – Modern Data Centre Analytics, Tech Data APAC, said “The global AI market size was valued at USD 93.5 billion in 2021 and in Asia Pacific it is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 45% from 2022 to 20301. And the predictive analytics market in the region is expected to increase from USD 2.89 billion in 2022 to USD 9.59 billion by 2028 2. Given this setting, we are excited to add Tangent Works to our Asia Pacific portfolio, which will empower ISVs, our partners and their end-users with extended capabilities in addressing complex AI environment challenges with secure and simplified cloud-native technologies.”

Tangent Works’ TIM, a multi-award winner in the field of predictive models, engineers features and applies a highly efficient algorithm in a single step. As compared to expert intensive AutoML, where users need to do feature engineering, model selection and tuning, the TIM hyper-automated engine covers all these steps in a one pass of the data, thus increasing speed, efficiency, productivity and scalability.

“Time series forecasting, and anomaly detection are hard problems to solve. TIM makes it quick and easy for business users to benefit from predictive analytics,” said Tangent Works CEO Henk De Metsenaere. “Together with Tech Data, we are bringing end-to-end predictive analytics solutions and consultancy to the Asia Pacific region.”  We are confident that by partnering with Tech Data, we will benefit from their global ecosystem of technology providers and partners.”

About Tangent Works

Tangent Works was founded in 2014 by a team of data scientists and mathematicians who believed in the power of predictive modeling for optimizing operations and reducing costs but found that the existing methods were far too complex and slow for broad adoption.

The Tangent Works’ mission is to de-mystify predictive modeling for forecasting and anomaly detection using our revolutionary InstantML technology and flexible TIM solution and make them accessible and productive for a broad range of users and use cases.
