Deploy the stupid model!

Every little bit helps

It becomes real

The effort is in the data step

The start of a beautiful relationship

What if I wait?

Deploying at v1.0, you realize the value in red until some future time
With early deploy, you maximize value (total red area)
Ah. Your model didn’t get used for very long and so only provided a small overall return

When should I wait?
