"I am writing to share my experience with Dataiku, a data science platform that I have recently had the opportunity to explore. As an IT Analyst with over 6 years of experience in the industry and working for TCS, I was introduced to Dataiku by Professor Shanker. I completed the Core Designer course offered by Dataiku as part of my assignment, and I am delighted to provide my review of the platform.Throughout my journey with Dataiku, I found it to be an incredibly easy-to-use and fantastic platform. Despite its powerful capabilities, Dataiku is designed in a way that allows users to understand and learn the tool with ease. Personally, I was able to navigate and experiment with the platform effortlessly, thanks to the guidance and support provided by Professor Shanker.

Dataiku offers a collaborative environment that empowers organizations to harness the full potential of their data. The platform brings together data scientists, analysts, and IT professionals, enabling them to work together seamlessly on data-driven projects. As an IT Analyst heavily reliant on SQL, I found this aspect of Dataiku particularly beneficial. The platform enables users to easily drag and drop operations, apply filters, and join tables. This visual approach simplifies the data preparation process and significantly reduces the time required for complex tasks. With just a few clicks, I could perform tasks such as aggregations, window functions, and advanced filtering.  Data scientists can leverage Python or R to build complex models, while IT professionals like myself can contribute by leveraging SQL. This inclusive environment fosters teamwork and enables faster, more accurate data-driven decision-making.

In conclusion, my experience with Dataiku has been exceptional. As an IT Analyst with a strong background in SQL, I found Dataiku to be an invaluable tool that complements my existing skill set."
