OPERATIONALIZING ANALYTICS

What is ModelOps?

The key to a highly operational analytics life cycle.

ModelOps: The Way Forward

Operationalizing Analytics - The Analytics Life Cycle

ModelOps is a holistic approach for rapidly and iteratively moving models through the analytics life cycle. While ModelOps is based on the application development community's DevOps approach, where DevOps focuses on application development, ModelOps focuses on getting models from the lab, to validation, to testing, to deployment as quickly as possible, while ensuring quality results. ModelOps – which encompasses culture, processes and technology – enables you to smoothly, efficiently and continuously develop and deploy models so you can cross the last mile and ensure analytics delivers on its promise.  

Elements of a ModelOps Approach

ModelOps fosters dynamic  collaboration and improved productivity for analytics and IT operations teams, regardless of what analytic language is used, what data is accessed or where the model will be deployed. It gets analytics out of the lab and into use, enabling you to conquer the last mile of analytics.

Data

Access data from a trusted source and align it to privacy and security standards. 

Model creation

Create models with a deployment scenario in mind to avoid re-work.    

Governance

Preserve data lineage and track-back information for governance and audit compliance.

Deployment speed

Do it all in minutes, not months, with close collaboration between data scientists and IT.   

Model monitoring

Deploy models with a monitoring mindset so analysts can monitor and retrain models as they degrade.
