"As a growing scale-up company, we were excited to build a dedicated Data Science practice, in order to drive more intelligence into our core products. We had all of the right data, hired the right people and picked out valuable initiatives as a place to start building models. What we didn't anticipate was just how many problems we'd run into when trying to scale those models to run on massive data sets that are the norm for our business.
Almost overnight, Shakudo's product helped us move past many of those struggles so we could focus on solving business problems instead of scaling infrastructure. As a result, we've moved data products more quickly towards production, we've run analysis more cost-effectively than if we had built it ourselves, and we've even avoided hiring data engineers who we thought would be required to make all of this possible. The ROI from the product, as well as the valuable experience that the Shakudo team brings, has been clear from the day we signed on with them."
