Team Squark are global experts in data, analytics and AI. We have advised name-brands you use daily and the biggest and most sophisticated companies, published books on analytics, won industry accolades, and lectured and taught at world-renowned colleges and universities globally.  Having collectively delivered more than $100M in solutions and services to over 500 companies (including 75% of the Fortune 100), we put this experience into everything we make.

Team Squark has built hundreds of predictive solutions across a broad range of industries. Yet we believe that the power of data science needs to also be in the hands of the business user not just data scientists.  We also realized that predictive AI would only be adopted broadly once traditional complexities were abstracted. Business users need answers on the data they’re using every day without teams of data scientists and programmers.

Squark is an AI as a Service (SaaS) platform enabling AI prediction with no code or using an API.  An easy to use web app helps business users and analysts uncover customer insights so they can make better business decisions. Squark’s power of machine learning and large scale computing makes AI accessible for every business user, allowing different teams to have access to powerful customer insights that can help drive their businesses.
