BCG and Datarobot partner
To deliver end-to-end solutions for AI deployments, DataRobot (www.datarobot.com) acquires Boston Consulting Group’s (BCG) (www.bcg.com) SOURCE AI technology to kick off an industry first strategic partnership that combines proprietary IP with leading consulting services to provide both the human expertise and the technical know-how needed to deliver optimal, continuous value from AI.
SOURCE AI was founded to help data scientists write code in unrestricted ways and to allow organizations to build industrial-grade AI solutions. The BCG GAMMA team recently developed a solution, Lighthouse by BCG, for decision support and scenario planning during the COVID-19 pandemic built on SOURCE AI. DataRobot will leverage SOURCE AI functionality to continue delivering a best-in-class experience, allowing advanced data scientists to use DataRobot’s enterprise AI platform for model experimentation and training as well as production model management and deployment.
“In today’s world, AI is a critical and strategic business opportunity. Companies that remain resilient and competitive must have the ability to successfully build and manage machine learning models,” says Sylvain Duranton, a BCG managing director and senior partner and the global leader of BCG GAMMA, BCG’s data science division. “BCG is thrilled to partner with DataRobot given our shared vision for making AI a reality for more organizations.”
“We’re excited to team up with BCG’s world-renowned data scientists and consultants to help organisations drive greater value from their AI projects and realise the full potential of AI,” says Jeremy Achin, the CEO and a co-founder of DataRobot. “We’ve been impressed with what the SOURCE AI team has been able to achieve and look forward to tapping their expertise to further innovate at DataRobot.”
The BCG and DataRobot strategic partnership will combine the leading, end-to-end enterprise AI platform and world-class domain experts. The collective expertise of the top data scientists in the world will help customers accelerate adoption and time to value for their AI deployments. Additionally, BCG and DataRobot will co-develop industry specific applications, making it easier to adopt AI at scale.
