Data Science Demystified
There’s a lot of buzz and hype about topics like data science and machine learning, but it’s really nothing new. It’s also not near as scary as it sounds. Data science is simply applying scientific principles to your data. In fact, you might be more familiar with these principles than you think.
In a business sense, data science is extremely useful. It can take you beyond surface-level analysis and provide deeper insight into your business operations. Traditional analysis can take you a long way, but data science goes beyond telling you “what’s happened” and into the realm of “what will happen next?” It’s this predictive capability that makes data science so useful in business decisions.
What Does Dataiku Do?
The truth is that are very few unicorn data scientists in the world. Though brilliant, many are in high demand, which means they demand premium salaries. Don’t fret. All is not lost. In fact, that’s where Dataiku aims to help.
Dataiku features an exhaustive list of data science and data preparation features. The purpose is to serve as a one-stop shop for these initiatives. With the power to consolidate your data science and preparation workflows into one place, you can save a ton of time and money. Beyond consolidation, it gives you the ability to build and monitor your models from start to finish in an easy-to-understand, visual interface.
On the data preparation side, Dataiku can connect virtually any source you desire. These connections allow to forego the manual extraction of data from one place into another. Once connected, Dataiku then allows you to clean your data in a fast and intuitive way. The best part is that once you find your flow, you can automate the whole process from data mining to data source creation.
Who Should Use Dataiku?
Perhaps one of our favorite things about Dataiku is its utility to a wide range of users. Because it was built for collaboration, it’s great for data science teams that are looking for a unified workflow. Its slick interface makes it comparable to a modern project management tool, only with the power of an exhaustive data science and data preparation toolbelt. Of course, the lone data scientist can also get considerable value from Dataiku, simply by the virtue of being able to use one tool in place of a dozen. Hey, that’s just math, and we know how much data folks love math.
