  • Automating Production Level ML Operations on AWS Feb 25 2021 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mark McQuade, Practice Manager, Data Science and Engineering & Daniel Quach, Lead Big Data Architect at Rackspace Technology
    Companies are realizing the value of using ML models to drive better outcomes for their businesses. Harnessing the predictive power of their data with ML models to remain competitive is becoming more critical to business operations, yet 60% of ML models never make it to production. This is due to complications often exacerbated by outdated business processes and the fact that it's not a core competency for typical data science teams.

    In this webinar, we will explore these specific challenges and illustrate how familiar cloud services can be stitched together with MLOps Foundations, enabling rapid development, training, scoring and deployment of models across multiple environments with strong governance and security controls to provide a foundation for successful model lifecycle management.

    What we'll cover:
    - Introduction to MLOps Foundations powered by Model Factory
    - The gap between the Data Scientists and ML Operations
    - The distinction between MLOps and DevOps
    - Architecture patterns necessary for elements of effective MLOps
    - How a “model factory” architecture holistically addresses CI/CD for ML

    Demo that will explore:
    - Quick feedback and traceability for model development
    - ML framework agnostic tooling for packaging of models
    - Platform agnostic continuous/rolling deployment

    The impact of Covid-19 pandemic will be felt longer after the crisis has passed. Closures of offices for non-essential workers , ensuing work-from-home strategies have certainly been disruptive. Companies were forced to support remote employees with little notice and largely succeeded.

    Join us for a one-hour manufacturing roundtable with technology leaders from Rackspace Technology and Salesforce.

    Manufacturing is experiencing a customer-driven revolution. The so-called “Amazon effect” has significantly raised expectations, with customers now accustomed to instant gratification. But a lack of supply chain collaboration and visibility is stifling the improvements needed to meet this demand.

    Our expert panel will discuss how manufacturing organizations can develop greater agility, innovation and customer satisfaction by exposing, sharing and analyzing the data currently locked away throughout the supply chain. Join us to learn how to:

    •Pull real-time customer data from the field via Community Cloud and FSL, to help you quickly adapt to market trends
    •Create a hyper-collaborative global supply chain to flex with demand and minimize work in progress
    •Integrate your front office with your back office — stretching benefits across people, processes, applications, data and infrastructure
    •Improve order-delivery times with Sales & Service Cloud by flowing customer and order data through operations from capture to service delivery.
    •Streamline operations by allowing field technicians to resolve issues with data-driven insight and action made possible through data exposure and distribution through FSL
    •Coordinate and track warranties through complex distribution channels with Community & Service Cloud
