DataRobot, a provider of enterprise AI, has acquired of Zepl, a cloud data science and analytics platform. The acquisition — unveiled today at DataRobot’s virtual conference, AI Experience Worldwide — will unlock new capabilities within DataRobot’s enterprise AI platform for the world’s most advanced data scientists.
Zepl provides a self-service data science notebook solution for data scientists to do exploratory, code-centric work in Python, R, and Scala with enterprise-ready features such as collaboration, versioning, and security.
“We have always known that to lead the AI market, we must embrace all creators of AI systems, from analysts and citizen data scientists who prefer using a GUI to advanced data scientists who love to code,” said Dan Wright, CEO of DataRobot. “Through the addition of Zepl, we now give advanced data scientists more flexibility to use our enterprise AI platform within their existing workflows, including the ability to use their own code. By incorporating Zepl into the DataRobot platform, we plan to further democratize data science across every enterprise and significantly accelerate our code-centric roadmap.”
“We created Zepl with a commitment to empowering the code-first data scientist, arming advanced users with the tools, customization, and flexibility needed for exceptional results,” said Dan Maloney, CEO of Zepl. “By embedding our self-service notebook solutions into DataRobot’s already frictionless platform, DataRobot cements its place as the de facto enterprise AI platform for users across the board, and at every skill level.”
