Meet The Modeling Agency

Long before TMA’s launch in January of 2000, many on The Modeling Agency’s (TMA) consulting team and faculty had already been working together in various roles and capacities in the most advanced analytic and machine learning firms of their day. Numerous working relationships on TMA’s bench extend two and a half decades.

TMA provides training, mentorship and solutions to organizations that are data-rich, yet information-poor and has been privileged to provide services and solutions for hundreds of highly recognizable organizations.

What sets TMA apart from other data mining consultancies is that TMA focuses on enabling its clients to internally operationalize data mining and predictive modeling. TMA’s services have enabled organizations across a vast spectrum of industries to establish and maintain their own predictive modeling practice.

Some of the world’s most respected brands and organizations operate far more efficiently and proactively utilizing TMA’s services by applying prospective and targeted treatments drawn from valuable information hidden within their existing mass of data. Instead of outsourcing each analytic task, TMA clients run their own predictive modeling factory with existing staff as a cost-saving or revenue-generating function within their overall BI practice.
