Spotlight

To drive innovation and grow the business, the use of technologies such as social, mobile, analytics, cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) is a strategic imperative for more and more enterprises. This process often starts with the customer interface, such as a mobile app or web self-service portal. But companies are realizing that overhauling their core processes is equally (if not more) important. That is because that core, often made up of enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications deployed in the 1980s or 1990s, is the source of all the data required by every user interface and business process.

Aporia & ClearML Launch New Full-Stack MLOps Platform Partnership

Aporia | November 07, 2022

Aporia, the customizable ML observability platform, and ClearML, the only unified end-to-end MLOPs platform to develop, orchestrate, and automate ML workflows at scale, announced an end-to-end solution today to help data scientists, ML engineers and DevOps teams perfect their ML pipelines. Through this new partnership, Data scientists and DevOps teams will be able to use the combined power of ClearML and Aporia to significantly shorten their time-to-value and time-to-revenue by ensuring ML projects are executed successfully and make it to commercial production more efficiently – from building to deployment and monitoring. As data scientists and ML engineers work to create applications that drive value, ML teams must jump through numerous hoops – from data experimentation and tracking to data operations and orchestrating – until a model is ready for production. With so many moving parts involved in operationalizing ML at scale, too much time is invested in learning how to use and integrate the required point solution tool for each stage of the process. Data science, ML engineers and DevOps teams need a frictionless one-stop-shop, end-to-end integrated solution that optimizes their entire workflow from training to production throughout the entire ML value chain. "As an open source company dedicated to giving the data science, ML engineering, and DevOps communities the tools they need to do more with their machine and deep learning projects, we're excited to integrate with Aporia to add cloud-native ML observability to our unified, end-to-end MLOPs platform. "The result of this joint effort means that our customers can do even more from the very start without the friction – using ClearML to build, train, orchestrate, and serve their models seamlessly and with just two lines of code and Aporia to monitor, explain, and improve those models once they hit production. Moses Guttman, CEO and Co-founder of ClearML ClearML is an open-source MLOps platform that automates and simplifies developing and managing machine learning solutions for data science, ML engineers and DevOps teams at scale. Designed as a frictionless, unified end-to-end MLOps suite, it brings the CI/CD automation approach into ML development & production allowing customers to focus on developing their ML code and pipelines, while also ensuring their work is automated, reproducible, and scalable. With ClearML for Enterprise, customers significantly shorten their time-to-value and time-to-revenue, ensuring operationalizing ML at scale is executed successfully and make it to production efficiently. In a category dominated by fragmented point solutions and walled garden closed semi-platforms, ClearML delivers an open-sourced, comprehensive offering that enables companies to scale their MLOps while successfully bridging the innovation and revenue gaps with the company's unified end-to-end platform. Once a model is deployed into production by ClearML, Aporia's customizable ML observability solution seamlessly empowers data science and ML teams to trust their AI, enabling them to monitor, explain, investigate and solve issues like data & concept drift, performance degradation and model decay. Aporia does this with customizable model monitoring to trigger live alerts when a model is spiraling, a dashboard that provides visibility of all models under a single pane of glass, and an 'Investigate and Explain' capability that gets to the root cause of any issue delivering explainable AI that gives human-readablemeaning to model predictions for business stakeholders. "As an MLOps leader, ensuring data science and ML teams can trust their ML model predictions, we see immense value for our customers in integrating with ClearML's open source MLOps platform to provide a true end-to-end solution from training to production and beyond," said Liran Hason, CEO and Co-Founder of Aporia. "There are so many different tools and moving parts to pull from when setting off on this hero's path to build, train, serve, monitor, and explain machine learning models. We're excited to team up with ClearML and provide a one-stop-shop MLOps platform to scale ML with confidence."

Matillion Accelerates Productivity for Data Teams with Key Ecosystem Integrations

Matillion | November 30, 2022

Matillion, the leader in data productivity, today announced technical and cloud ecosystem partnerships to accelerate the value of data within enterprises. Varying skill levels, competing protocols, and a mix of processes and platforms keep modern data teams from delivering what the business needs. Seventy-five percent of data teams believe that outdated migration and maintenance processes are costing their organizations time, productivity, and money — at an annual price tag of up to $43.5 million. The Data Productivity Cloud is a data integration platform that allows teams of all skill levels to deliver business-ready data through cloud-native ELT (data extract, load, and transform). "Enterprises on a cloud data modernization journey need to prioritize a data stack that works in harmony with other platforms to achieve rapid time to value and trusted insights.
