Hello! We are Go Data Driven

We know Big Data. We create data driven solutions.

We offer...


In the last 4 years we have worked closely with online retailers to change their marketing technology strategy. The main driver for this change was their need for personalization to increase revenue.

At that time they had point solutions for various functionalities like recommendations, search suggestions, search optimization and personalization. Without exception these solutions were not transparant, not flexible, not scalable and considered expensive.

At these online retailers, we have introduced the best of breed open source technologies and used it to solve all four issues.

Using our extensive experience at these customers and the market demand we are facing we have decided to build a personalization platform, Divolte, based on open source technologies that will bring personalization to your platform.



GoDataDriven is a leading provider of high quality software solutions that focus on data driven aspects. Think recommendation engines, suggested search, Big Data processing and analytics, near real-time event processing or interactive visualizations.

Our team combines creativity, analytical skills and world class software engineering to build production ready and scalabe solutions. Some of these are used by millions every month or process terabytes of customer data every day.



Since 2009 we have successfully helped our clients to implement Big Data, based on open source and other technologies. We experience that the platform is only one aspect of Big Data. Successful Big data projects also focus on the skills of the people and the work process.

The services we provide include:

  • Integrating Hadoop with existing systems
  • Integrate predictive analytics into production systems of engagement
  • Building test to production feedback loops for continual improvement
  • Developing code and transforming data
  • Tuning and deploying Hadoop clusters
  • Develop and measure effectiveness of predictive analytics models
Why us...


We offer public and private classroom training. For our Hadoop training, we partner with Cloudera to offer their training portfolio which is delivered by our own experienced trainers. We are the only certified training partner in our territory. Besides the certified Hadoop training, we offer a variety of additional training services on subjects related to data driven technology and process. Feel free to inquire about tailor made programs on Big Data technology, data driven solutions (such as recommendation systems, smart search, high volume web analytics, etc.). We have trained more than 200 professionals since 2011.

The Data Driven way of working

Agile Big Data

Big Data technologies, like Hadoop, enable agile working in the data domain. This makes Hadoop a game changer. Work in multidisciplinary teams with software engineers, data scientists and business analysts and deliver value each sprint. Speed is important and Hadoop delivers. On average, Big Data projects deliver value in weeks!


Many Big Data projects start with exploring the value within unstructured data. You could say to explore what the potential business cases are. As a result of this fuzzy goal, the initial project budgets are often small. Since Hadoop is open source and runs on standard hardware, it gives you the option to start working with Big Data with a small budget.


Stop spending money on expensive technology. Invest in your people instead. Knowledge workers want to be challenged and choose the right software for the right purpose. Prevent vendor lock in situations. The Hadoop ecosystem is growing like no other technology ecosystem.

Big Data

What is Big Data? For us Big Data is unstructured, often system generated data. The volume of the data and the preferred processing time exceeds the capabilities of affordable relational databases.
