Recently, Dataiku announced their 2022 class of Neurons—the highest performing and most passionate members of the Dataiku community. Beginning in 2020, those nominated to be Neurons are the movers and shakers in the Dataiku sphere, providing new users direction and guidance in their Dataiku journey.
A Neuron at InterWorks
We’re beyond pleased to share that InterWorks’ very own Rachel Kurtz was inducted into this class of Neurons along with 35 other experts from around the world! We recently caught up with Rachel to find out how she reacted to finding out that she was Dataiku’s newest Neuron:
Rachel: “I was excited. The program started just over a year ago and there were about 10 people there, so it’s still a fairly small group at this point. I’m very honored to be nominated for it, especially knowing that Dataiku themselves were the ones that nominated me … It was very humbling.”
Rachel also remarked that the new Neuron class is planning on attending conferences and get-togethers as a group, as well as strengthening their bonds through close collaborations on Dataiku projects.
Rachel: “I love Dataiku as a tool and using Dataiku, but above all, I really love helping people to also find that love of Dataiku and being able to use it. Just being able to have this title that labels me as somebody that you can come to if you have questions about Dataiku or need assistance to help promote it within your company, it makes me really happy that I can help others to fall in love with it, too.”
Rachel is the first InterWorker to be nominated for the new award. Aaron Confer, InterWorks’ Global Director of Business Development, and James Wright, InterWorks’ Global BI Practice Director, released a joint statement about Rachel and her new title:
“We’re delighted to celebrate Rachel’s induction into Dataiku’s select Neuron group!
Rachel is an amazing colleague and is certainly deserving of the honor. She’s been instrumental in building out our global capacity for data science, machine learning and self-service analytics. We’re excited to see where her leadership will continue to take our company, as well as our customers.
Overall, we see a bright future for Dataiku’s technology and our thriving partnership.”
