In today’s business climate, large enterprises tend to reap the most rewards from emerging AI technologies, transforming their business models around the new frontiers of data science and machine learning. According to Gartner’s Predicts 2019: Midsize Enterprise CIOs Lead, Adapt and Evolve Digital Transformation, “Creating and sustaining a competitive advantage require CIOs of MSEs to pay close attention not only to near-term impacts, but also mid- and longer-term advances in technology. This is the only way to ensure that they adopt the most relevant strategic technology trends that will help them to survive and thrive in the fast-changing business environment.”
In addition, the report states, “By 2022, over 50% of midsize enterprises will improve their productivity and growth through adopting artificial intelligence into their core business operations.” With this in mind, Dataiku recognizes AI innovation is critical to any business and that it provides value even when executed at a smaller scale.

In fact, we’re thrilled to already be partnering with over 1,000 smaller and medium-sized businesses who are starting their path to Enterprise AI with Dataiku Free and Lite Editions.”
