7th #FounderShowcase Winner @Kaggle Announces Partnership with EMC Corporation

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2012-10-30

Kaggle, winner of the 7th Founder Showcase, recently announced a plan to join forces with EMC Corporation through its Greenplum division. The two aim to tackle the problematic shortage and heavy demand for data scientists by using an integration between Kaggle's data science community and EMC Greenplum Chorus.

Just five months after winning the 7th Founder Showcase, Kaggle raised an $11m round led by Index Ventures and Khosla Ventures, SV Angel, and Yuri Milner. Purchase your tickets to the November 7th Showcase where we will help launch several more promising startups like Kaggle to greatness.

According to a May 2011 report, 'Big Data: The next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity' from the McKinsey Global Institute, there is a shortage of talent necessary for organizations to take advantage of Big Data. This shortage of talent is widely believed to be the biggest block to the wholesale adoption of Big Data by industry and creates difficulties for Big Data companies to access data scientists.

Kaggle Founder and CEO, Anthony Goldbloom believes, “Data scientists are hard to find...Even if you do find somebody who purports to be a data scientist, it’s really hard to know if they’re good at their craft". 

Fortunately, the Kaggle and Greenplum Chorus integration will help bridge the gap between those needing problems solved and big data scientists. Through what is similar to a social networking platform, the Greenplum Chorus platform will increase accessibility of these hard to find data scientists, while aiming to increase productivity, decrease administrative burdens on IT infrastructures, and get better visibility and faster access to data through a single tool.

Since Kaggle's participation the 7th Founder Showcase they have gone on to become one of the biggest players in the big data market and have run over 100 competitions with major enterprise, government, and academic customers, including Allstate Insurance, Dunnhumby, Facebook, Ford, Heritage Health, Merck, Microsoft, NASA, Stanford, and Wikipedia. Over 55,000 data scientists worldwide have contributed to competitions that tackled the toughest predictive problems in the marketing, life sciences, insurance, financial services, travel, and science industries. Kaggle's investors include Index Ventures and Khosla Ventures.

Don't miss out on your opportunity to be the first to experience game changing companies like Kaggle.
