About This Constellation ShortList™

Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms enable organizations and individuals to build intelligent applications based on data. AI platforms must provide the facilities to ingest complex data, address rapidly generated or constantly evolving data, rectify and amplify hard-to-find signals, craft models where human-powered analytics are slow, enable resolution for highly iterative models, decrease the time to generate models, and improve accuracy rates.

Seven key components for AI success include the ability to handle large amounts of complex data, deliver massive compute power, compress time, provide math talent, embody domain expertise, leverage human user experience, and support contextual decisions. Best-of-breed platforms do not rely on one cloud vendor to handle the complex data, massive compute power, and time compression. Instead, they reserve the option to apply a multi-cloud strategy.

The end goal of AI platforms is to provide the infrastructure to support contextual decisions.  These contextual decisions power an array of AI-driven smart services required to deliver next-best action across a range of business processes. These solutions typically do not come from an IaaS vendor or cloud compute infrastructure provider.
