Huge Crowds fill Big Data Paris to Capacity

DataRobot, and our French partner, Appex, joined thousands of data analytics professionals at Big Data Paris, held March 7 & 8, at the Palais des Congrès. In its 5th year, Big Data Paris is now the “go to” event in France. Professionals at all levels come together at the show to collaborate, and to explore the latest trends in big data and predictive analytics.


With attendance nearly double last year’s, the 2016 event brought together more than 10,000 attendees clamouring for knowledge.

Compelling speakers, such as AstraZeneca’s Nick Brown, and Carrefour’s Jean-Christophe Brun challenged the crowd to think differently about the impact of big data, predictive analytics and the growing internet of things.

Our own Data Scientist, André Balleyguier, presented a workshop entitled, “Putting Predictive Analytics in the Heart of your Business,” where several hundred attendees enjoyed seeing DataRobot’s machine learning platform in action.

After the workshop, our team connected with overflow crowds seeking to learn more about our French partner Appex, and DataRobot’s massively parallel automated machine learning platform.

We expect record turnouts at the upcoming Strata/Hadoop and Predictive Analytics World conferences in the San Francisco Bay Area in late March / early April as well. For those shows, we now have a online reservation system, allowing you to skip the lines and prearrange a private tour. Click here to schedule a time to visit.

Our kudos to the folks at Appex for making the show so successful, we look forward to working together to harness the excitement generated in Paris this week.

And, in addition to the Bay Area shows, we also have our eyes trained on the next Appex & DataRobot event — a corporate breakfast on April 14th at the Sofitel Arc de Triomphe Hotel in Paris, where DataRobot’s Razi Raziuddin will offer details about DataRobot, André will again share his popular workshop, and a French executive  from the banking sector will share personal experiences working with Appex and the DataRobot solution.
