Deloitte_ExecutiveBizDeloitte Australia has partnered with Kaggle Inc. to combine data organizations in an effort to help customers gain business insights from data analytics, according to an IT Wire article.

Peter Dinham writes Deloitte and Kaggle will merge their respective 6,000 analytics personnel and 100,000 data scientists in Kaggle’s first global partnership.

Anthony Viel, national managing partner of Deloitte Analytics in Australia, said the alliance aims to bring insights and solutions to the Australian market and later implement the capabilities in Deloitte’s global partners through Kaggle.

“This might involve participating in a competition or hiring a data scientist using Kaggle Connect, with the outcome further infusing Deloitte’s insights with new perspectives and delivering a truly distinctive solution to any number of strategic issues and decisions,” Viel said.
