An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

If you’re going down the data science road, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re using Python and Anaconda as part of your toolset. That’s because Anaconda is the most popular open source Python distribution for data science and is both downloaded directly and included in numerous data science platforms.

The company provides a comprehensive platform that enables data scientists to take data sets and explore them, condition them, run models against them and then present the results as a web service or via other distribution means. The company provides the tools and libraries that data scientists need to do their work.

Unlike most open source organizations, however, Anaconda takes a unique monetization approach. All of the software that a data scientist needs to do their job is free and unrestricted. There is no freemium models or crippleware in sight. Instead, they offer a completely separate piece of software for enterprise organizations that provides the logistics, governance and management capabilities that enterprise organizations need to deliver data science at scale.
