COSTA MESA, CA, March 27, 2019 — Today’s successful businesses rely on the latest market intelligence and the most up-to-date consumer insights. Since launching less than eighteen months ago, the Experian Ascend Technology Platform has been helping businesses, including 15 of the world’s top financial institutions, stay ahead of rapidly changing consumer behaviors by leveraging the power of data, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The Ascend Analytical Sandbox was the first solution built on the Ascend Technology Platform. Like the name suggests, a sandbox is an environment that contains all the data and analytics tools needed to create, build, and gain insight from data. Experian’s hybrid-cloud system gives businesses instant access to more than 17 years of depersonalized credit data on more than 220 million U.S. consumers, as well as alternative data, commercial and auto data and other exclusive data assets. With the Ascend Analytical Sandbox, businesses also have access to industry-leading analytics and data visualization tools, including SAS, R, Python, H2O, Tableau and others, to mine and manipulate data, combine it with their own and view accurate consumer stories in near real-time.

“The Ascend Analytical Sandbox has truly been an incredibly successful product launch for Experian. The benefits available through this tool are exactly what businesses have been asking for – faster and more informed lending decisions with greater accuracy,” said Alex Lintner [pictured], Group President Experian Consumer Information Services. “It’s not just traditional lenders who are benefitting. Our partners in FinTech, retail, mortgage, auto and insurance are also seeing how we are connecting everything – the data, the technology and the insights to create real business opportunities.” More...
