Dataiku Continues Expansion Into North American Market

NEW YORK, N.Y., March 18 — As the data science and big data analytics industry continues to heat up, Dataiku, the maker of the predictive analytics software platform Dataiku Data Science Studio (DSS), gains momentum as the company continues its expansion into the North American market. With strong business growth and market demand for its platform, Dataiku is pleased to announce that it has added two members to its executive team:

  • Mehdi Bouarek, new VP of Sales for the Americas, joins Dataiku after two years of serving as Area VP of Sales for Trifacta. Mr. Bouarek has passionately contributed to developing the ‘data’ space for numerous years, previously working with Informatica, Mongo DB, and MapR. As an early member of the sales organization during his time at Trifacta, he oversaw the early GTM efforts and helped scale the business. He’s based out of San Francisco, California.
  • Carole Offredo, new VP of Marketing, joins the Dataiku team after serving 3 years as Global Channel Marketing Director for Dassault Systemes, worldwide leader for product development software applications enabling 3D Design, Engineering, 3D CAD, Modeling, Simulation, Data Management, and Process Management.

After launching in the US market in April 2015, Dataiku has experienced widespread adoption of its flagship product Dataiku DSS which provides organizations an end-to-end solution for developing and deploying predictive analytics solutions.

Amongst Dataiku’s 60+ customers, prestigious companies such as L’Oreal, HP Inc., AXA, and Bechtel are now using the company’s software to enable their growing data teams to deliver quality data products quickly. Moreover, Dataiku is working with Thomson Reuters Labs supporting HackTrafficking4Good, a Thomson Reuters-sponsored event that used data analytics to expose labor brokers and people traffickers.

In 2016, Dataiku will increase its investment in the US, continue to tie strategic partnerships with industry leaders (which already include Microsoft, HPE, Cloudera, Tableau…), and further scale its operations in Europe. The company, which has been profitable since its founding, will continue in its effort to empower a growing number of data teams with the tool they need for maximum efficiency and quality delivery of in-house predictive products and solutions.
