These days, companies don’t just have one data scientist hanging around. They have two or three or maybe even 150. So increasingly it makes sense for data scientists to have a place to collaborate to provide insights to help companies make informed decisions, not just do their work in isolation.

Startups have come forth with cloud-based tools for just this sort of thing. But Alpine Data Labs believes it’s important for companies to keep such tools running in house, in their own data centers. And a growing customer list, featuring Blackberry and Morgan Stanley, suggests that the idea isn’t crazy.

This week on What to Think, VentureBeat’s Dylan Tweney and Jordan Novet speak with Tim Guleri, managing director at Sierra Ventures, about why he’s so excited about Alpine, and Alpine cofounder and chief product officer Steven Hillion about what the startup wants to do next to become even more helpful.

Plus, we also tell you what to think about:

  • Leaked Windows 10 desktop features, including Cortana
  • How crazy it is for Facebook to try to become a business software provider
  • The way we use social media to complain about brands. A lot.

All this and more is in our latest weekly episode. Check it out!
