Iguazio’s Contribution to the Machine Learning, MLOps and AI Spaces

Iguazio provides innovative ML orchestration and pipeline automation technologies and a strong data engineering infrastructure. Together, the Iguazio platform allows enterprises and organizations to streamline and manage their AI from the lab to production, in a simplified, scalable and automated manner. This operationalization of ML pipelines orchestrates and accelerates model training, deployment and management, while cutting down on friction between data scientists, data engineers and DevOps, and reducing operational costs.

Iguazio’s unique online and offline feature store supports feature reusability and scale, and is fully integrated with the model serving and monitoring capabilities of the Iguazio platform. Unlike other feature stores on the market, the Iguazio feature store serves as a robust data transformation service, alongside additional platform features like the real-time serving pipeline, monitoring and retraining capabilities and CI/CD for ML. The result is a powerful platform that abstracts away the complexities of AI/ML and empowers organizations to generate business value across multiple use cases.

Three examples of this are our work with Ecolab, LATAM Airlines and S&P Global. Ecolab accelerated the rollout of new AI services by 12X using Iguazio on Microsoft Azure. LATAM Airlines deployed more than 40 AI services across commercial and operational departments, to create business value and to plan for the post-pandemic future. S&P Global deploys semantic extraction with NLP on engineering documents to drive better decision making, processing thousands of PDF files in parallel and in real time, and orchestrates dependencies with AI. We have many more success stories from customers across verticals.

Prior to these 2022 Hype Cycles, Iguazio was also mentioned by Garter in the following reports:
