About us

Derive products provide agility to companies and corporations by driving the cost out of analytics.

Machine learning and advanced analytics are transforming the enterprise across industries of all stripes. But in order to reap the benefits of advanced analytics, companies need to invest heavily in building a data science team, infrastructure, and purchase expensive software. There’s already an acute talent shortage in data science; McKinsey projected around 50 to 60 percent gap between supply and demand for deep analytical talent by 2018. Moreover, all advanced analytics products that are available in the marketplace today require expert data scientists to navigate their tool-kits and determine the best course of action for a given dataset. All of these factors slow companies down in their ability to make timely, data-driven decisions, and hence lose their competitive edge.

With Derive, we provide a reassuring break from this traditional and rigid framework.

Our Mission

Our mission is to democratize the power of advanced analytics to all organizations by slashing time, talent, and cost constraints.

Most organizations understand the value of harnessing insights from Big Data using advanced analytics, but many struggle to realize the full potential of their data because of the constraints associated with advanced analytics. Setting up an in-house Data Science team is a time and resource intensive process. Moreover, vetting and purchasing necessary analytics software and infrastructure can be a daunting task.

We aim to let all organizations harness the power of advanced analytics quickly, and without having to rely on data scientists and expensive software.
