Analytical Model Productionalization
Analytical Model Productionalization


It’s 2017 - the world is going digital, and it’s no longer enough to simply build models and show the results in a snazzy, JavaScript-enabled dashboard. As enterprises transform themselves in order to leverage the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, it is becoming clear that the world’s most powerful model is useless until it is in the hands of the right decision maker at the right time. Today, an organization’s success is determined by its ability to deliver analytics-driven insights to decision makers at scale and across domains, reusing techniques, technology, and knowledge wherever possible. Turns out: that’s difficult to do! The successful deployment, maintenance, reinforcement, and reuse of analytical models requires new skills, new technologies, and deep partnerships between previously siloed organizations and disciplines. But don’t worry—Cisco is here to help, by sharing lessons learned (and battle scars) from years of deploying models inside of a Fortune 500 Company.
