Title: Methods, systems and computer program products for web services access of analytical models

Abstract: Accessing an analytical model is provided by invoking the analytical model hosted by an analytic engine through a web services interface to the analytic engine. Invocation of the analytical model through the web services interface may be independent of the analytic engine hosting the analytical model. Furthermore, the analytical model may be a predictive model markup language (PMML) model. Invoking the analytical model may be provided by creating a set of tables utilized to store model information and parsing a PMML modeling language representation of the analytical model to populate the set of tables. A web services signature is generated for the analytical model based on the populated set of tables.
