Data science is an area of loosely defined capabilities so PlaidCloud provides a large toolbox to support a wide range of data science problems. For example, MADlib is readily available to run machine learning models in a massive parallel system without moving data and PostGIS provides powerful geographic distance and boundary calculations. PlaidCloud provides many other powerful and useful analytics tools.
If you find that you have a highly specialized need that none of the built-in tools provide a solution for, you can include your own custom transform. Custom transforms are written in Python and incorporated easily into workflows without any special importing or code management.
Built by people with real world experiences in financial, operational, and costing analysis, PlaidCloud is a trustworthy tool designed to aid and support analysts. It was designed by analysts for analysts.
