A partnership has been announced between enterprise data science software maker, Dataiku, and new-technology staffing firm, Kubrick Group, to train and staff groups of technical candidates in big data and data science technologies to meet the booming demand for skilled big data workers in the UK.
In the UK alone, it is estimated that there will be a need for 157,000 new Big Data and Data Science workers by 2020, however the number of available and qualified workers is much less, often forcing UK companies to look abroad to fill their big data technology positions.
The partnership between Kubrick Group and Dataiku will train top quality mathematics, physics and computer science graduates in the latest Big Data Engineering, Data Science, and Data Analytics technologies. Following an external accreditation, the trainees will become consultants and join Kubrick Group clients to help them tackle data challenges and effectively extract value from their data.
The consultants will be supported and developed throughout the entire two year programme with constant training, career coaching and pastoral care to maximise value for the client. After the two years, the client has the option of keeping the consultant as a permanent member of resource for no extra fee.
“We are excited by the opportunities presented by this partnership,” said Simon Walker, Managing Partner of Kubrick Group. “Dataiku is an incredible tool, which will allow our people to be greater equipped for our clients.”
Dataiku, the maker of the all-in-one enterprise platform Dataiku Data Science Studio (DSS), will be providing Kubrick trainees with their latest platform, which uses the most recent technologies in data science and machine learning, in addition to a host of training resources and materials. Kubrick will allow companies to fully exploit the power of Dataiku by providing highly trained Data Engineers and Data Scientists as a flexible and cost effective solution to companies looking to harness the maximum amount of value from their data.
Dataiku DSS is an advanced analytics software solution that enables companies to build and deliver their own data products more efficiently. Thanks to a collaborative and team-based user interface for data scientists and beginner analysts, to a unified framework for both development and deployment of data projects, and to immediate access to all the features and tools required to design data products from scratch, customers such as AXA, L’Oreal, Intermedix, Trainline, Hostelworld, and many more easily apply machine learning and data science techniques to all types, sizes, and formats of raw data to build and deploy predictive data flows.
“We are happy to announce this partnership with Kubrick Group and provide the technology, resources and materials to help train the next generation of highly skilled UK data scientists,” said Florian Douetteau, CEO, Dataiku.
