Mammoth Analytics tell us about their aspirations for Data Pitch and beyond.
Many companies are failing to unlock the true value of their data due to a lack of analytical expertise, or they are wasting resources on expensive software that have lengthy integration processes and are complicated to use.
Mammoth Analytics, based in the UK, is a data management platform that gives everyone and anyone the tools to use data to make better business decisions and work smarter. We spoke to CEO Gaurav Dudhoria about Mammoth Analytics’ plans for Data Pitch.
What do you hope to achieve on the Data Pitch accelerator?
The Mammoth team is very excited to be part of the Data Pitch accelerator and to work with Greiner Packaging International GmBH (GPI) on the Smart Manufacturing Challenge (harnessing IoT data for tomorrow’s smart factories). It’s an excellent opportunity to get exposure and contribute to making a difference in the manufacturing space.
We also hope to engage with and learn from the other Data Pitch startups, and become an active member of the Open Data Institute’s network, as well as the wider open data community.
What shared data will you work with and how will you use it?
Greiner Packaging are providing manufacturing-specific sensor and log data. A problem that the manufacturing industry currently has is the complexity of managing data flow. This is where Mammoth comes in, providing tools to streamline data flow. We plan to enhance our platform and offer a manufacturing-specific solution based on what we learn during Data Pitch, with invaluable feedback from Greiner Packaging.
Why do you think it is important for startups to work with large scale data providers?
The startup/Data Provider relationship is a win-win situation. Startups get exposure to real-world data and are able to solve problems that typically affect an entire industry. The Data Provider works with an agile team that is highly dedicated to the mission and unencumbered by the bureaucracies found in a large organisation.
What’s the best thing about working with data?
Well-managed data gives individuals and organisations the means to make objective strategic decisions.
If you could change one thing about the data ecosystem what would it be?
The data landscape is inundated with inefficiencies. We would love to see more standardisation and transparency in this area.
