Journey to Open Data Science

Why Open Data Science is the Right Approach for Your Team


What is Open Data Science and Why Does it Matter?

Open Data Science is the foundation of availability, innovation, interoperability and transparency in data. It is not a single technology, but a revolution within the data science community. Open Data Science is an inclusive movement that makes open source tools for data science—data, analytics and computation—easily work together as a connected ecosystem.

The Promise of Open Data Science


With Open Data Science, technologies are nonproprietary and open source, making powerful tools available for both individuals and teams. Everyone can access a large and flourishing interconnected ecosystem, giving data science teams access to the most innovative technological advances.


Open Data Science draws innovation from a variety of open source communities, including Python, R, Hadoop, Scala and others. These communities use broad-based peer reviews that quickly optimize the research trajectory, making the latest developments in science instantly available.


Technologies across the open source ecosystem are integrated through Open Data Science. Open source contributors leverage existing know-how, code and tools to eradicate typical boundaries established by proprietary vendors that previously prevented interoperability.


There is an abundance of Open Data Science technologies that disclose algorithms and processing techniques to the public via open source. This transparency inspires further innovation, as anyone from the community can check the aptness of the analytics.
