Data Science is a Team Sport – That’s Why We Created Expert Models

It is an exciting time to be in data science where your ideas and innovations can impact on millions of potential customers globally, almost overnight. Disruption on a global scale is now open to us like never before.

And yet success in data science is not guaranteed; to carry out a data science project or create a production-quality data science system requires a team effort.


At Creme Global we believe that “data science is a team sport” – especially if you need production-quality in your results. And you do, by the way.

We find that the cloud is the best way to enable collaboration and teamwork (even if the whole team sits in one office) we call it “getting data science out of the desktop”. To carry out a successful, collaborative data science project using the cloud, or to create a cloud-based data science application, there are a number of jobs to be done – at least 15 by our count.

The good news is that the Expert Models platform does 9 of the 15 jobs for you (items 5-13 below)! If required, our team or our partners can carry out a further 4 of the 15 jobs for you (items 2-4 & 14 below), leaving just 2 jobs for you (items 1 & 15)!

15:  Make really good data-driven decisions for the business / organisation validated by the models and data.

Expert Models is a collaborative platform which enables people working across the data science value-chain to work together better. It joins teams to combine data sets with quality, trustworthy data analytics and models, and makes those easily accessible to decision makers via a simple web browser or apps.

Expert Models is designed to facilitate collaboration within your organisation. It also allows you to tap into a broader pool of experts outside of your organisation, as required.

By taking care of a large number of the required jobs, the platform allows you to focus on the business questions, the people and the data science.

I am excited about how we can work with you and our data and developer partner community to deliver world class data science and analytics applications for individuals, teams, companies, government organisations and researchers globally.

Expert Models is ready to go – please contact us to discuss how Expert Models can help your organisation to get to the next level in production-quality data science.
