As an increasing number of organizations look for ways to take their analytics platforms to higher grounds, many of them are seriously considering the incorporation of new advanced analytics disciplines, this includes hiring data science specialists and solutions that can enable the delivery of improved data analysis and insights. As a consequence, this also triggers the emergence of new companies and offerings in this area.


Dataiku is one of these new breed of companies. With its Data Science Studio (DSS) solution, Dataiku aims to offer full data science solution for both data science experienced and non-experienced users.

In this opportunity I had the chance to interview Florian Douetteau, Dataiku’s CEO and be able to pick some of his thoughts and interesting views in regards to the data management industry and of course he’s company and software solution.

A brief Bio of Florian 

In 2000, at age 20, he dropped the prestigious “Ecole Normale Supérieure”  math courses and decided to look for the largest dataset he could find, and the hardest related problem he could solve.

That’s how he started working at Exalead, a search engine company that back at the time was developing technologies in web mining, search, natural language processing (NLP) and distributed computing. At Exalead, Florian scaled to be managing VP of Product and R&D. He stayed in the company until it was acquired in 2010 by Dassault Systèmes for $150M (a pretty large amount for French standards).

Still in 2010 when the data deluge was pouring into to new seas, Florian worked in the social gaming and online advertising industry, an industry where machine learning was already being applied on petabytes of data. Between 2010 and 2013 he held several positions as consultant and CTO.

 By 2013 Florian along with other 3 co-founders creates Dataiku with the goal of making advanced data technologies accessible to companies that are not digital giants, since then one of Florian’s main goals as CEO of Dataiku is to be able of democratizing access to Data Science.

So, you can watch the video or listen to the podcast in which Florian shares with us some of his views on the fast evolution of data science, analytics, big data and of course, his data science software solution.

Machine Learning and Cognitive Systems, Part 2: Big Data Analytics

In the first part of this series, I described a bit of what machine learning is and its potential to become a mainstream technology in the industry of enterprise software, and serve as the basis for many other advances in the incorporation of other technologies related to artificial intelligence and cognitive computing. I also mentioned briefly how machine language is becoming increasingly important for many companies in the business intelligence and analytics industry. In this post I will discuss further the importance that machine learning already has and can have in the analytics ecosystem, especially from a Big Data perspective. Machine learning in the context of BI and Big Data analytics Just as in the lab, and other areas, one of the reasons why machine learning became extremely important and useful in enterprise software is its potential to deal not just with huge amounts of data and extract knowledge from it—which can somehow be addressed with disciplines such as data

Consumers of BPM technology are now pushing the limits of BPM practices, and BPM software providers are urging the technology forward. So what can we expect from the next

SAP Data Hub and the Rise of a New Generation of Analytics Solutions

“Companies are looking for a unified and open approach to help them accelerate and expand the flow of data across their data landscapes for all users. SAP Data Hub bridges the gap between Big Data and enterprise data, enabling companies to build applications that extract value from data across the organization, no matter if it lies in the cloud or on premise, in a data lake or the enterprise data warehouse, or in an SAP or non-SAP system.” This is part of what Bernd Leukert, SAP’s member of the executive board for products & innovation mentioned during SAP’s Big Data Event held at the SAP Hudson Yards office in New York City as part of the new SAP Data Hub announcement and one that, in my view, marked the beginning of a small yet important trend within analytics consisting on the launch or renewed and integrated software platforms for analytics, BI and data science. This movement, marked by other important announcements including Teradata’s New Analytics Platform as well
