BigML Down Under—Introducing

Posted by

Machine Learning for everyone also means Machine Learning everywhere. This month we will get a little closer. We are crossing the Pacific and launching BigML in Australia and New Zealand. From today on, BigML users in Australia and New Zealand can enjoy BigML at This site will have identical functionality as, only it will run directly on local cloud-based infrastructure. In addition, we’re very excited to detail a unique alliance that BigML has launched with a leading data intelligence company in the region, GCS Agile.


While BigML makes it easy for you to build predictive models and perform a variety of machine learning tasks, there are many other related activities that are required for enterprise-grade deployment of machine learning solutions. For example, data transformations, feature engineering, finding the best modeling and prediction strategies, and measuring the impact are key to maximizing the power of machine-learned models. GCS Agile’s data intelligence team is uniquely qualified to support this type of holistic approach to machine learning, and BigML is pleased to announce that our companies have entered into a strategic alliance.


GCS Agile is comprised of seasoned leaders who have extensive experience providing data-driven solutions to leading companies in diverse sectors such as telecommunications, finance, and government.  BigML will rest at the heart of GCS Agile’s data intelligence practice.  GCS Agile and BigML teams will  work together to bring BigML private deployments to mid-sized and big companies in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition, the GCS Agile team has been busy organizing a series of public events where you will be able to meet face to face with GCS Agile and BigML leadership team members. If you want to know more please contact the GCS Agile team at
