ADAPA is the first standards-based, real-time scoring engine available on the market and the first scoring engine accessible on the Amazon Cloud as a service. ADAPA on the Cloud combines the benefits of Software as a Service (SaaS), the scalability of cloud computing and the extensive feature set of ADAPA on Site.
By utilizing the ADAPA Control Center, you can launch and terminate a new ADAPA instance on the Amazon Cloud in minutes which allows you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.
Finally, by offering ADAPA on the Amazon Cloud as a service changes the economics of predictive analytics by allowing you to pay only for computing that you actually use. What a concept ... huh?
