Add external data to time series forecasts

Improve your time series forecasting model accuracy with external data signal automatically discovered using Ready Signal

Ready Signal connects you to 500+ external data sources that are normalized and updated daily.
The solution saves data science organizations time from having to manually procure, test, and engineer control data that has a material impact on model performance and predictions.
Access Ready SIgnal from DataRobot Notebooks directly makes it easy to enrich your data without having to leave the DataRobot environment. 

How it Works

We provided access to the Ready Signal UI and API for integration with DataRobot to augment your time series projects. An example workflow is laid out in the AI Accelerator. Ready Signal’s AutoDiscovery feature automatically compares your target variable to the 500+ control features within Ready Signal. It identifies the features that are most useful for predicting the target variable. Machine learning model can be then developed and deployed with augmented dataset in DataRobot.

The workflow can be applied to any time series forecasting project. Data Science consulting and implementation services are available through Ready Signal.
