Dataiku Academic Provides Free Enterprise-Quality Data Science Software to Students, Teachers, and Researchers

Collaborative data science platform maker, Dataiku, now offers free licensing, support, and resources for students, educational institutions, and researchers.

May 9, 2017 - New York, NY - Dataiku, the maker of the enterprise data science platform Dataiku Data Science Studio (DSS), has announced the Dataiku Academic Program – an initiative to provide completely free licensing, support, and learning resources for teachers, researchers, and students in data science and business analytics fields. The company looks to enable the next generation of data scientists by helping students learn data science concepts within Dataiku DSS, the software platform that companies around the world use to develop and run advanced data science solutions.

The platform allows users to leverage the fundamental data science coding languages (R, Python, SQL) as well as the most state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms, open source, and big data technologies (Scala, Spark, Hadoop) to provide a complete tool for data science students, as well as their teachers. 

The visual interface of Dataiku DSS - further improved with the recent release of version 4.0 - empowers students with a less technical background to learn the data mining process, and build projects from raw data to predictive application, without having to write a single line of code.  In addition, real time collaboration allows students to work on group projects simultaneously or follow a professor's actions live.

For researchers, the platform can be used to create powerful models and predictions using the most recent technologies in data science and machine learning.

"Our goal at Dataiku is to help everyone, everywhere, with their data analysis and predictive modeling skills," said Florian Douetteau, CEO of Dataiku. "A vital part of that is to provide free licenses for our software and specific support resources for academics, researchers, and personal learning to help the next generation of data scientists learn, create, and succeed."
