DataRobot Partners With Boston Consulting on AI Deployments 

DataRobot, the automated machine learning software vendor, continued its string of acquisitions this week with a deal to buy Boston Consulting Group’s AI technology platform. The companies also announced a strategic partnership that would combine consulting services with DataRobot’s intellectual property.

The AI acquisition and partnership seek to address the growing number of unsuccessful enterprise AI deployments. Missing is the ability to build, deploy and monitor machine learning models that produce actual results and return on investment.

Hence, the partners said Tuesday (June 9) they will collaborate to help customers build “industrial-grade” AI platforms. To that end, high-flying DataRobot will acquire the business consultant’s Source AI technology. The platform is designed to free data scientists to write restriction-free code used that combines human and technical expertise.
