Our Story

DecisionNext was built on four truths:

The ability to calculate business risk from market risk is a game changer.

The black box is dead. Sophisticated users need interactive forecasting models that provide full transparency.

Machine learning & cloud computing enable the use of disparate data like never before.

Commodity industries have unique needs for dynamic forecasting capabilities.

Since our founding, DecisionNext has been helping smart companies improve their visibility into commodity markets to make better decisions.

The DecisionNext team melds industry insight together with mathematical horsepower to build analytical tools that create value across entire supply chains.
