Dataiku takes on Asia with its predictive analytics software

by bold-lichterman

Dataiku, the French start-up which publishes software to create new predictive applications, has just appointed a vice-president, Albert Antoine, for Asia-Pacific. “We see that the needs and maturity of clients in Asia are quite advanced, at least comparable to what we have in Europe, if not more», Details Thomas Cabrol, co-founder of Dataiku. The company is already working with several local companies like Samsung or Hyundai. The company is giving itself one year to “discover” and “know” the Asian market. During this year, she plans to create a team of 5 people for the region.

Dataiku has collaborated with L’Oréal or BlaBlaCar

This development in Asia was notably made possible thanks to Dataiku’s latest fundraising. Last September, the start-up received a $ 25 million investment. Founded in 2013 by Marc Batty, Thomas Cabrol, Florian Douetteau and Clément Stenac, Dataiku developed Data Science Studio, a platform whose objective is to make the development of a predictive application more productive and efficient.

The latter collects internal and / or external data in order to build a “data product” that uses Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Dataiku differentiates itself from its main competitors, IBM or even SAP, by a collaborative approach: each profession can come and work on the platform and not just Data Scientists or Data Engineers. In France, the company has notably collaborated with L’Oréal and BlaBlaCar.
