Bringing Extra AI to Snowflake, the Knowledge Cloud

Maximizing Present Snowflake Investments

Some companies have spent important cash on instruments to stay revolutionary and aggressive. Whereas this may be a superb technique for a future-oriented firm, it may well show futile when you don’t maximize the worth of your funding. In keeping with Flexera1, 92% of enterprises have a multi-cloud technique, whereas 80% have a hybrid cloud technique.

Integrating completely different programs, knowledge sources, and applied sciences inside an ecosystem may be troublesome and time-consuming, resulting in inefficiencies, knowledge silos, damaged machine studying fashions, and locked ROI. 

The DataRobot AI Platform and the Snowflake Knowledge Cloud present an interoperable, scalable AI/ML answer and distinctive companies that combine with various ecosystems in order that data-driven enterprises can concentrate on delivering trusted and impactful outcomes.

Extending Snowflake Integration: New Capabilities and Enhancements

To assist clients maximize their Snowflake funding, DataRobot is extending its Snowflake integration to assist clients shortly iterate, enhance fashions, and full the ML lifecycle with out repeated configuration. 

This contains: 

  1. Supporting Snowflake Exterior OAuth configuration
  2. Leveraging Snowpark for exploratory knowledge evaluation with DataRobot-hosted Notebooks and mannequin scoring.
  3. A seamless person expertise when deploying and monitoring DataRobot fashions to Snowflake
  4. Monitoring service well being, drift, and accuracy of DataRobot fashions in Snowflake

“Organizations are on the lookout for mature knowledge science platforms that may scale to the dimensions of their whole enterprise. With the newest capabilities launched by DataRobot, clients can now assure the safety and governance of their knowledge used for ML, whereas concurrently rising the accessibility, efficiency, and effectivity of information preparation, mannequin coaching, and mannequin observability by their customers,” stated Miles Adkins, Knowledge Cloud Principal, AI/ML at Snowflake. “By bringing the unrivaled AutoML capabilities of DataRobot to the information in Snowflake’s Knowledge Cloud, clients get a seamless and complete enterprise-grade knowledge science platform.”

Full the Machine Studying Lifecycle, With out Repeated Configuration

Connecting to Snowflake

Connect with Snowflake by way of exterior identification suppliers utilizing Snowflake Exterior OAuth with out offering person and password credentials to DataRobot. Scale back your safety perimeter by reusing your current Snowflake safety insurance policies with DataRobot.

Snowflake External OAuth

Be taught extra about Snowflake Exterior OAuth.

Exploratory Knowledge Evaluation 

After we connect with Snowflake, we will begin our ML experiment.

We lately introduced DataRobot’s new Hosted Notebooks functionality. 

For our joint answer with Snowflake, because of this code-first customers can use DataRobot’s hosted Notebooks because the interface and Snowpark processes the information straight within the knowledge warehouse. This permits customers to work with acquainted Python syntax that will get pushed right down to Snowflake to run seamlessly in a extremely safe and elastic processing engine. They will get pleasure from a hosted expertise with code snippets, versioning, and easy atmosphere administration for speedy AI experimentation.

Mannequin Coaching

As soon as the information is ready, customers select their most well-liked method for mannequin growth utilizing DataRobot AutoML by way of the GUI, hosted Notebooks, or each.

When the coaching course of is full, DataRobot will suggest the best-performing mannequin for manufacturing based mostly on the chosen metric and supply an evidence.

Mannequin Deployment

Clients want the pliability to deploy fashions into completely different environments. Deploying to Snowflake reduces infrastructure operations complexity, knowledge switch latency and related prices, whereas bettering effectivity and offering close to limitless scale.

A brand new Snowflake prediction atmosphere configured by DataRobot will mechanically handle and management the atmosphere, together with mannequin deployment and substitute.

When deploying a DataRobot mannequin to Snowflake, this new seamless integration considerably improves the person expertise, reduces effort and time, and eliminates person errors. 

Snowflake deployment

The automated deployment pushes educated fashions as Java UDFs, operating scalable inference inside Snowflake, and leveraging Snowpark to attain the information for velocity and elasticity, whereas preserving knowledge in place.

Mannequin Monitoring

Inner and exterior components have an effect on fashions’ efficiency.

The brand new monitoring job functionality is run seamlessly from the DataRobot GUI helps clients hold observe of their enterprise choices based mostly on predictions and precise knowledge modifications and govern their fashions at scale.

Monitoring data source - DataRobot

Over time fashions degrade and require substitute or retraining. The DataRobot MLOps dashboards current the mannequin’s well being, knowledge drift, and accuracy over time and can assist decide mannequin accountability.

There’s extra coming

We’ve extra thrilling capabilities to share, many associated to the Snowflake integration, which can be introduced on the DataRobot 9.0 launch occasion on March sixteenth. Register right here to be a part of this digital occasion. 

In case you are already a buyer of Snowflake and DataRobot, attain out to your account group to stand up to hurry on these new options.

Getting Began with DataRobot AI and Snowflake, the Knowledge Cloud

DataRobot and Snowflake collectively provide an end-to-end enterprise-grade AI expertise and experience to enterprises by decreasing complexity and productionizing ML fashions at scale,  unlocking enterprise worth. Be taught extra at DataRobot.com/Snowflake
