dotData is one of the only platforms that combines AI-powered feature engineering and AutoML to automate the full life-cycle of the data science process, from source data through feature engineering to implementation of machine learning in production. dotData’s AI-powered feature engineering automatically applies data transformation, cleansing, normalization, aggregation, and combination and transforms hundreds of tables with complex relationships and billions of rows into a single feature table, automating the most manual data science projects. “Startups are an indisputable innovation engine, and Microsoft is partnering with founders and investors to help propel their growth,” said Shaloo Garg, Managing Director, Microsoft for Startups, Silicon Valley, Southwest. “dotData’s platform offers an innovative solution that supports its customers in their digital transformation. We are pleased to work with dotData as part of our Microsoft for Startups program to help them grow customer and revenue base.”

dotData democratizes data science by enabling existing resources to perform data science tasks, making enterprise data science scalable and sustainable. dotData also operationalizes data science by producing both feature and ML scoring pipelines in production, which IT teams can then immediately integrate with business workflow. This further automates the time-consuming and arduous process of maintaining the deployed pipeline to ensure repeatability as data changes over time.  With the dotData GUI, the data science task becomes a five-minute operation, requiring neither significant data science experience nor SQL/Python/R coding.
