2019 Year in Review – Grounded, Our Dream Run Continues!
About Kunal Gandhi
Marketer At Ellicium
I have been writing ‘Year In Review’ at Ellicium for the last three years now. With all the modesty, I can proudly say that this year as well, we have not just pushed the envelope in the right direction but we have grown leaps and bounds. 2019 was the year where we put the full force on the accelerator, keeping the spirit of Ellicium intact.
As we bid adieu to 2019, here are some of the highlights that made this one of the memorable years for us:
Quality is not an act, it is a habit
On our endeavor to deliver the best of Big Data, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence; we have always strived to keep the degree of excellence above the industry standards. To take our quality endeavor to the next level, this year we have initiated some very focused efforts. We really want to inculcate quality as a habit. Leveraging our existing processes, I am happy to share that we have made tremendous progress. Our quality policy reflects what we want to achieve. Every Ellician has been contributing a lot!
“Ellicium will drive measurable economic value for all our stakeholders through data analytics solutions by being a learning and innovating organization and by Institutionalizing quality culture.”

Pune Data Conference 2019
Our association with Pune Data Conference continues for the third consecutive year! Resonating with the solid work we have been doing in Data Science, therefore, this year our CEO Dr. Kuldeep Deshpande and our Senior Data Scientist Saumitra Modak delivered a session on ‘Making Data Science Work‘. This session become one of the major highlights of the Pune Data Conference. We were overwhelmed with the positive response and applaud it received. It was great to have initiated the conversation in the right direction. Also, Kuldeep was a part of a very fruitful and illuminating panel discussion on BFSI at the conference.
Ellicium Training Program For Freshers – 4th Batch Graduates
We developed this comprehensive training program for those who join Ellicium as a fresher in 2017. In this training program, our senior team devotes great efforts to train juniors by working with them and empowering them with all the industry wisdom. Our 4th fresher’s batch got graduated this year under this program. As always, we celebrated this with a little ceremony by awarding and recognizing everyone’s efforts. By the way, guests for this ceremony are always the parents of one of the Ellicians.
Strengthening The Armour
Since our inception, we have been laser-focused on creating a culture of training. We don’t just focus on helping Ellcians gain new skills but help them learn from war stories shared by industry leaders and veterans. This year we had a string of training sessions focused on Data Science and Big Data. One of the highlights this year was a session on “Model selection and averaging using Akaike Information Criterion and Bayesian Information Criterion and related concepts” by Dr. William Romine, from Wright State University.
We also added many courses on leading MOOC platforms for Ellicians to access.
Sharing With The World
Moreover, As passionate techies, we have always believed in sharing gained wisdom and experience freely with the community. In 2019, we developed a comprehensive video series around ‘Making Data Science Work‘, where our data scientists shared their thoughts and methods to make data science projects successful. This 8 episode series was received well!
Empowering And Being Empowered
2019 was one of the most fulfilling years for us in terms of getting an opportunity to help businesses across verticals and geography with our Big Data, Data Science, and AI capabilities. We are proud of the fact that clients who supported us in our first year of existence are still with us. This gave us the strength of the greatest degree! We are happy to let you know that we have added some leading organizations across the globe to our growing list of admirers. Our team understands and appreciates the opportunity bestowed upon us to solve some world-class problems. We feel empowered!

We have nothing but gratitude for all of you who have supported us and cheered for the Ellicium growth story. Our team hopes to continue to solve those tech problems which we are passionate about. We know one this for sure that we can’t stop now, as it has become a larger dream with all of you joining us!
