Data science is the critical element in exploiting data, but several problems prevent organisations from maximising its value. Data scientists often find it hard to work efficiently, with delays in getting access to needed data and resources. Enterprise developers find it hard to incorporate machine learning models into their applications, and IT spends too much time supporting complex environments. Business users rarely are directly involved in the process and don’t have the means to build and consume their own predictive models. All of this means that business executives are not seeing the full ROI they expect from their data science and analytics investments. In this session, we will introduce some cloud based solutions designed to address these challenges.
