Why Data Science?

Data science is allowing organisations to unearth hidden patterns, trends, and useful insights to accelerate innovation. Organisations with large data sets, (especially transactional) have historically collected large data sets, but have found it difficult to transform them and generate insights. Data Science using Databricks is cost effective, simple, highly elastic, reliable and performant, putting Data Science within reach for organisations large and small. AI Consulting Group can help foster collaboration across our executives, data science and engineering teams to impact innovation and productivity today!
