We’re excited to share that Microsoft has been acknowledged as a Chief within the IDC MarketScape Worldwide Machine Studying Operations (MLOps) Platforms 2022 Vendor Evaluation. Microsoft holds a deep understanding of MLOps market developments, robust buyer adoption, broad associate ecosystem, and continued product investments in constructing a differentiated MLOps platform.
The report cited a number of key strengths together with product and enterprise capabilities throughout the complete machine studying (ML) lifecycle in addition to an expansive buyer footprint and associate community.
“Microsoft gives a big selection of enterprise-grade MLOps instruments for high quality and compliance that may increase any ML growth surroundings on-premises, throughout clouds, or in a hybrid cloud surroundings.” —IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Machine Studying Operations Platforms 2022 Vendor Evaluation

Do extra with much less with MLOps on Azure
Whereas machine studying turns into extra mainstream throughout industries, there are various challenges like knowledge governance, safety, knowledge compliance, and auditability that corporations want to think about when productionizing machine studying fashions. These organizations look to a unified machine studying platform to handle the complete ML lifecycle to carry fashions to manufacturing quicker and at scale, bettering operational efficiencies of knowledge science groups with MLOps. At Microsoft, we contemplate MLOps as a philosophy moderately than a product and, as such, our strategy incorporates folks, processes, and platform to ship steady worth with fewer assets for machine studying. MLOps carry advantages to organizations by automating repeatable actions, facilitating collaboration throughout groups, and guaranteeing full visibility and reproducibility into the end-to-end ML lifecycle.
Azure Machine Studying helps knowledge scientists and ML engineers streamline coaching, deployment, and administration of hundreds of fashions throughout on-premises, multicloud, and even on the edge utilizing native MLOps capabilities reminiscent of mannequin registry, CI/CD pipelines with deep integration with Azure DevOps and GitHub, managed on-line endpoints for real-time inference, and experiment monitoring and lineage with MLflow. PepsiCo has been utilizing MLOps capabilities in Azure Machine Studying to automate mannequin creation and deployment and analyze retailer buyer knowledge to reply to buyer demand extra effectively. In truth, they’ve succeeded in eliminating 4,300 days of guide work a 12 months.
Improve collaboration throughout the group
We consider machine studying is a workforce sport that requires collaboration throughout folks with a unique vary of talent units, reminiscent of knowledge scientists, machine studying engineers, and IT admins. One of many key options talked about within the report is that Azure Machine Studying permits better collaboration throughout a number of knowledge science groups via registries. Registries in Azure Machine Studying are organization-wide repositories of machine studying property: fashions, environments, and elements. Registries make multi-environment MLOps simpler by serving to groups share and reuse fashions developed in a unique workspace, by a unique workforce with out manually copying them over.
One other function that fosters collaboration between knowledge scientists and enterprise professionals is the Accountable AI dashboard and scorecard, a single interface to assist organizations implement Accountable AI in apply successfully and effectively. The Accountable AI scorecard helps contextualize the mannequin and knowledge well being insights with each technical and non-technical audiences, bringing stakeholders alongside in addition to aiding in compliance opinions. Microsoft is dedicated to accelerating our improvements in Accountable AI.
Microsoft is proud to be acknowledged as a Chief within the IDC MarketScape Worldwide MLOps Platforms 2022 Vendor Evaluation, and we’re excited by improvements occurring at Microsoft and throughout the trade that empower knowledge scientists and machine studying engineers to completely operationalize the ML lifecycle. You possibly can learn and study from the report excerpt.
