Pivotal Chorus becomes the public access point to Kaggle’s community of 55,000 data scientists
Pivotal and Kaggle have joined forces to tackle the short supply and heavy demand for data scientists with an integration between the Kaggle data science community and Pivotal Chorus, the platform for data science.
Chorus users wishing to engage the Kaggle community can search, browse, and drill into profiles of the Kaggle community members who are interested in collaborating. Conversely, Kaggle’s community of over 55,000 data scientists can choose to opt into doing contract work through the Pivotal Chorus platform. This integration transforms the way Pivotal Chorus users to get assistance with their Big Data problems. It also allows Kaggle’s elite data scientists to expand the market for their highly-sought-after skills.
The Kaggle and Chorus integration brings a new dimension by expanding the opportunity for the industry to realize the benefits of collaborating around Big Data and for elite data scientists to expand the market for their skills.
