Continuum Analytics, the premier provider of Python-based data analytics solutions and services, announced today that it has expanded its global presence with the establishment of Continuum Analytics Europe GmbH in Voelklingen, Germany. Opened earlier this month, the expansion brings the full array of Continuum’s products, consulting, and training services to the European market. The move comes in response to growing demand from international clients for large-scale data analytics and visualization services and solutions.
Continuum Analytics Europe will be managed by quantitative Python expert Yves Hilpisch. Dr. Hilpisch brings with him 10 years of Python experience and 17 years of experience in the financial industry. Earning his doctorate in mathematical finance and option pricing theory, Dr. Hilpisch worked as a top management and financial consultant from 1997 until 2004 when he founded Visixion GmbH. Visixion uses Python to develop financial engineering applications, including DEXISION, a tool for on-demand derivatives analytics. Additionally, Dr. Hilpisch is a lecturer at Saarland University, teaching Mathematical Finance with Python. As Managing Director of Continuum Analytics Europe, Dr. Hilpisch will use his experience to deliver expert Python solutions, manage daily operations, and implement Continuum’s strategy abroad. Continuum Analytics will maintain its Austin headquarters under the leadership of CEO Travis Oliphant and President Peter Wang.
“We are excited about the opportunities this expansion brings to better serve our international clients. We are very happy to welcome Yves to the Continuum team and look forward to investing his vast consulting and teaching experience into Continuum clients. Continuum Analytics Europe is an important step toward realizing our goal of serving a global market,” states Travis Oliphant, CEO and Co-Founder of Continuum Analytics, Inc.
Along with Continuum’s enterprise-ready Python distribution Anaconda, its accompanying add-ons for data loading (IOPro), GPU and multi-core acceleration (Accelerate), and its newly-released in-browser analytics environment Wakari, Continuum Analytics Europe will offer the same high-quality training and consulting services for the analysis, management, and visualization of data to Europe. Continuum’s Python experts have years of industry experience in consulting, having helped organizations build web applications for technical workflows, optimize their existing infrastructure, as well as understand and derive value from data with advanced analytics. Training courses are taught virtually and on-site, covering topics from Practical Python Programming to Python for Science and Python for Finance.
