Boston, MA March 1, 2018 - Oceanos released a new data point, "IT Specialty", to help sales and marketers better segment the technology audience. The data point is derived from regression modeling that ingests thousands of self-reported skills and certifications to determine the combination of attributes that best predict one of the eighteen IT specialties listed below.

  • AI
  • AppDev
  • Architecture
  • BI
  • Big Data
  • Cloud/SaaS
  • Data Center
  • DBA
  • DevOps
  • DR
  • InfoSec
  • ITOps

  • SysAdmin
  • Telecomm

Brian Hession, President & Founder of Oceanos, stated "The model reviewed over two million technology contacts and successfully assigned either a primary and/or secondary specialty to approximately 1.1 million of them. This new data point will enable our clients to more effectively segment the IT audience by combining 'job level', 'function', 'sub-function' with 'specialty'. This data point will provide instant value when peered with generic titles such as IT Manager or IT Director."
