To Forbes, the company confirmed that it was still valued as a unicorn after the recent D round.
Dataiku specializes in AI for enterprises, of which it counts more than 300 as customers.
Top flight clients include Schlumberger, GE Aviation, Sephora, Unilever, BNP Paribas, Premera Blue Cross, Kuka and Santander.
Dataiku intends to make AI an integral part of the client’s system structure.
Dataiku co-founder and CEO Florian Douetteau said in a statement: “Our leadership in the enterprise AI field continues to attract world-class investors who understand Dataiku’s truly global solutions and customer base, and they also know that we have unique advantages. Help companies realize the untapped potential of AI to promote corporate transformation.”
Chief customer officer Kurt Muehmel told Forbes that the philosophy of the company was to enable every enterprise to build data and AI solutions for themselves.
Customers should have the ability not to be reliant on a service provider or vendor for this purpose.
Evgenia Plotnikova, partner at investor Dawn Capital, said: “The market has always proven that Dataiku’s collaborative approach is the best way to gain the benefits of AI throughout the organization. Moreover, the agility provided by AI has never been more important in the enterprise.”
Dataiku supports companies on various fronts including model-driven fraud detection, customer churn prevention, predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and more.
For example, at Levi’s, the Dataiku system suggests a personalized recommendation system for shoppers. On the other hand, Mercedes-Benz uses Dataiku to forecast business performance.
