How You Will Help to Create Value with
Data and AI
We build strong data and AI practices to deliver value to both our clients and their customers. In the past, our team of data professionals has predicted the daily demand for millions of loaves of bread, advanced energy-saving algorithms to nationwide scale, and set up data innovation labs at large multinationals. We have already enjoyed great success in making the top companies AI-driven – just think of what more we can achieve when YOU join our team!
As an Analytics Translator, you help companies leverage the opportunities of data science and machine learning. You spot and quantify opportunities, help their teams focus on solving the right problems, and guide them in building AI solutions. You ensure that developed solutions make it to production and deliver value from day one. In the bigger picture, you embed data and AI within the organization’s DNA to help our clients become AI-Driven.
What You Will Do to Make Organizations
The Analytics Translator is the liaison between senior management, the business, and data experts. On some days, you are the gatekeeper of the project funnel, brainstorm ideas with executives, and work with the data experts to groom the backlog of viable ideas. On others, you do a workshop to refine a use case and put the process in place for developing it in a valuable AI solution. And if this solution is a success, you make sure the whole organization knows about it. Besides translating the needs of the business, you also educate them on how data and AI can add value to their daily job. By putting the business in the driver seat when developing solutions, you help make the organization become truly AI-Driven.

Your Devices and Books
Conferences and Speaking
In 2009, we were pioneers in implementing modern data platforms like Hadoop. Back then, Big Data wasn’t a common term. But the technology opened up new business opportunities for our customers, which is always what matters.
The thrill of replacing a very expensive, licensed data platform with an open-source platform that easily outperformed its predecessor inspired us to become the country’s leading experts in open-source Big Data technologies. So, it should come as no surprise that GoDataDriven was the first Cloudera partner outside of the US.
After implementing Big Data technology, we began offering Data Engineering services and hired our first data scientist in 2012. We have since built a team of incredibly talented data scientists, many with Ph.D.’s. Our lead data scientists and lead data engineers are now complemented by top-notch analytics translators who work with the business to point out and develop AI use cases into applications that are a joy to use and add value to your bottom-line.
