Start a Data Science Project in Minutes

Start a Data Science Project in Minutes
It’s as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

Predictive analytics; you know you need it – right?  You want to use the hidden value in your data for competitive advantage – right?  You want to make business decisions based on data science and not the Magic 8-Ball – right?  So what’s holding you back?

Let me guess… starting a data science project can be tough. Like most companies, you are impacted by the data science skills gap.  It’s likely that you don’t have the necessary resources in-house to solve your data science problems and the high cost of traditional consulting firms isn’t in the budget. Often times, it seems that getting started and finding the right expertise can be prohibitively expensive and time consuming, making data science available only to the largest organizations in the world.


Enter the rise of the data science marketplace – making advanced analytics accessible and affordable for all organizations.

A data science marketplace is an on-demand service that lets organizations post data science projects and where data science consultants bid to work on those projects.  All at a small fraction of the cost of traditional consultancies. With this approach, competitive bidding reduces costs and the virtual environment allows for greater operational efficiencies for consultants. This translates into you being able to get started with your data science pilot project with minimal commitment & investment. So long Magic 8-Ball!

The Harvard Business Review describes it as “Consulting on the Cusp of Disruption” whereby, challengers reduce cost and increase efficiency through technology, streamlined workflow and alternative staffing models.
