The announcement continues, “World Programming’s extensive team of software engineers and mathematicians has worked to build one of the industry’s highest-performing, most reliable platforms for data science and production analytics. To date, the World Programming product development team has written more than five million lines of code for the WPS software platform.

We’ve made some core improvements, while also adding industry-specific features for our more sophisticated users,’ said Oliver Robinson, CEO at World Programming. ‘Industries such as the life sciences and pharmaceuticals use complex methods to analyse life-saving clinical trials whilst banks and insurers are working to protect your money and reduce premium levels by combatting fraud.
