What Does Iguazio Bring to the Machine Learning and MLOps Space?

By marrying a strong data engineering infrastructure with cutting-edge ML orchestration and pipeline automation capabilities, Iguazio simplifies the challenges of MLOps for enterprises, enabling organizations to work in a production-ready environment, fostering closer collaboration between data scientists, data engineers and DevOps teams and facilitating faster deployment of AI to production with better resource utilization.

Iguazio has a strong competitive advantage in the MLOps space due to its built-in online and offline feature store, integrated model serving and model monitoring capabilities. It includes a unified architecture for real-time and batch processing in research and production, as well as hybrid deployment capabilities (multi-cloud, on-premises and edge). The platform's serverless architecture supports extreme performance at scale. The result is a powerful platform that abstracts away the complexities of MLOps and empowers enterprises to create real business impact with AI, across diverse use cases.

An example of this is our work with Ecolab which accelerated the rollout of new AI services by 12X using Iguazio on Microsoft Azure, alongside many other success stories from customers across verticals.

In addition to Iguazio being mentioned in these seven 2021 Gartner Hype Cycles, Iguazio was also mentioned in five Gartner Hype Cycles in 2020, and earlier this year received an honorable mention in the Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Data Science and ML Platforms, for the second year in a row.
