About This Constellation ShortList™

For organizations with data science teams, these cloud kingpins offer all the tools, notebooks, diverse data science libraries, and collaborative monitoring tools they’ll need to build, deploy, and manage custom machine learning (ML) models. What’s more, these platforms are steadily introducing automated capabilities that enable data-savvy team members to build and deploy ML models without coding or deep data science expertise. This ShortList has been revised and renamed to focus more tightly on cloud- based machine learning platforms for building, deploying, and managing models though both traditional and automated methods. The list no longer encompasses deep learning/cognitive services or bot-building capabilities, which are typically separate buying decisions.

Threshold Criteria

Constellation considers the following criteria for these solutions:

  • Extensive tooling, notebooks, data science library options, and monitoring and management features geared to help data scientists build, deploy, and maintain models
  • Low-code/no-code and automation options that enable data-savvy users to build models without coding or deep data science expertise
  • Collaborative capabilities supporting model development, deployment, and ongoing performance monitoring
  • Global presence, massive compute/storage/network capacity and the ability to satisfy country-specific data- residency requirements
