Our team has worked with and for companies across industries. We’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of data strategy. We’ve seen teams implement successful data lifecycles, dashboards, machine learning models, and metrics. We’ve also had to come in and untangle, delete, migrate, and upgrade entire data systems.

Did you know that $28.5 billion were spent on investing in machine learning projects, tools, and employees in 2019?

Is the suffix “Ops” a little overused? Yes.

But MLOps has its place in the technology world. It’s actually a sign of a maturing discipline. As best practices on machine learning model management and deployment become more crystalized, it becomes much easier to develop automated platforms that can manage many of the mundane and error-prone steps in your machine learning workflow. …
