In a (big) data-driven world, a lot of pressure is put on data scientists to make sense of the massive amount of information companies have stored.
To do so, they must combine and configure the right set of tools – for data storage, processing, analysis, visualization, etc. –, programming languages and models that match the company’s specific needs. While most data science platforms tend to limit the number of compatible tools, the imec spin-off and imec.istart company Qrama developed Tengu: a generic, open-source data science hub that offers professionals complete freedom to choose the tools that best suit each of their data science projects. The platform is currently being used as part of imec’s City of Things program in the Belgian city of Antwerp.
