NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EY has announced its global Analytics-as-a-Service (AaaS) platform, EY Synapse, to accelerate the delivery of analytics-driven insights that businesses can use to compete and operate more effectively.

The EY Synapse platform expands EY's analytics managed services capabilities with a flexible technology architecture and framework for clients worldwide. It enables organizations to operationalize analytics-driven insights more quickly and more cost effectively across multiple locations or geographies.

EY Synapse combines market-leading and proprietary technologies, advanced analytics capabilities, EY-developed intellectual property analytics assets and deep industry sector knowledge. In addition, EY can help clients with the behavioral alignment required to derive and sustain value by addressing the "human factors" related to organizational changes – such as company culture, organizational processes, and the skills, training, and internal communications and incentives required to drive and sustain value from data analytics.

Chris Mazzei, EY Chief Analytics Officer, says:

"The potential of big data and analytics has been in the spotlight for some time, but many organizations are still struggling to derive significant and proper value from their initiatives and capabilities. Not only is EY Synapse designed to help companies deploy analytics solutions faster and at scale, but we also deliver capabilities around the behavioral aspects that are so necessary for success since it is ultimately people who will translate and act on the insights from analytics to change business outcomes."
