Best data science platforms

Here are some of the best data science platforms available for modelling and deploying machine learning


As businesses aim to operationalise their data faster than ever, platforms that allow data scientists to build and test out algorithms are increasingly important.

However, for all enterprises it's important to remember that all data science platforms are relatively immature and may suffer teething problems. 

"Data science is not plug and play," Matt Jones, lead analytics strategist at Tessella Analytics told Computerworld UK. "Platforms are fine, but they need to be trained by someone who understands the data and the context it exists in. If you're outsourcing data science to a tech vendor, be absolutely sure they understand your business and your data."

Keeping that in mind, here are some of the best data science platforms, from established vendors to completely open source, being used by enterprises today.
