Level Up Your Analytics with Dataiku on Windows


Level Up Your Analytics with Dataiku on Windows

Sometimes you find a tool that blows you away with its capabilities and get eager to utilize it in your day-to-day work with data. Dataiku was one of those for me. It doesn’t run on Windows natively, but the process to install the virtual system so that I can use Dataiku on Windows was painless. Now I have the community edition of Dataiku on my local machine, for free, and can take my analytics to the next level without relying on any company infrastructure. I thought I’d document the install process with screenshots so you can take advantage of this great tool as well!
