New DataRobot and Snowflake Integrations: Seamless Knowledge Prep, Mannequin Deployment, and Monitoring

Knowledge scientists run experiments. They iterate. They experiment once more. They generate insights that drive enterprise choices. They work with companions in IT to harden ML use instances into manufacturing methods. To work successfully, knowledge scientists want agility within the type of entry to enterprise knowledge, streamlined tooling, and infrastructure that simply works. Agility and enterprise safety, compliance, and governance are sometimes at odds. This rigidity ends in extra friction for knowledge scientists, extra complications for IT, and missed alternatives for companies to maximise their investments in knowledge and AI platforms. 

Resolving this rigidity and serving to you benefit from your present ecosystem investments is core to the DataRobot AI Platform. The DataRobot workforce has been working arduous on new integrations that make knowledge scientists extra agile and meet the wants of enterprise IT, beginning with Snowflake. In our 9.0 launch, we’ve made it straightforward so that you can quickly put together knowledge, engineer new options and subsequently automate mannequin deployment and monitoring into your Snowflake knowledge panorama, all with restricted knowledge motion. We’ve tightened the loop between ML knowledge prep, experimentation and testing all over to placing fashions into manufacturing. Now knowledge scientists will be agile throughout the machine studying life cycle with the good thing about Snowflake’s scale, safety, and governance. 

Data Science with Snowflake and DataRobot

Why are we specializing in this? As a result of the present ML lifecycle course of is damaged. On common, 54% of AI initiatives make it from pilot to manufacturing. Therefore, practically half of AI initiatives fail. There are a few causes for this. 

First, with the ability to experiment lengthy sufficient to determine significant patterns and drivers of change is tough. The prototyping loop, notably the ML knowledge prep for every new experiment, is tedious at finest. It’s tough for knowledge scientists to securely connect with, browse and preview, and put together knowledge for ML fashions notably when knowledge is unfold throughout a number of tables. From there, each time you run a brand new experiment, you’re again to prepping the information once more. And if you do discover a sign and have constructed an excellent mannequin, it’s tough to place these ML fashions into manufacturing. 

Fashions that do make it into manufacturing require time-consuming administration via monitoring and alternative to take care of prediction high quality. A scarcity of built-in tooling alongside the complete course of not solely slows down knowledge scientist productiveness, nevertheless it will increase the overall price of possession as groups must sew collectively tooling to get via this course of. The DataRobot AI Platform has been centered on making the complete ML lifecycle seamless, and right now we’re doing much more with our new Snowflake integration. 

Safe, Seamless, and Scalable ML Knowledge Preparation and Experimentation

Now DataRobot and Snowflake clients can maximize their return on funding in AI and their cloud knowledge platform. You possibly can seamlessly and securely connect with Snowflake with help for Exterior OAuth authentication along with primary authentication. DataRobot safe OAuth configuration sharing permits IT directors to configure and handle entry to Snowflake.

DataRobot will mechanically inherit entry controls, so you possibly can deal with creating value-driven AI, and IT can streamline their backlog. 

With our new integration, you possibly can rapidly browse and preview knowledge throughout the Snowflake panorama to determine the information you want on your machine studying use case. Automated knowledge preparation and well-defined APIs assist you to rapidly body enterprise issues as coaching datasets. The push-down integration minimizes knowledge motion and permits you to leverage Snowflake for safe and scalable knowledge preparation, and as a characteristic engineering engine so that you don’t have to fret about compute assets, or wait on processes to finish. Now you possibly can take full benefit of the size and elasticity of your Snowflake occasion.  

Secure, Seamless, and Scalable ML Data Preparation and Experimentation - DataRobot and Snowflake

With our DataRobot hosted notebooks, you possibly can leverage Snowpark for Python alongside the DataRobot Python Shopper to rapidly connect with Snowflake, discover, put together, and create machine studying experiments together with your Snowflake knowledge. You possibly can leverage the 2 platforms in the best way that take advantage of sense for you – leveraging Snowpark and the DataRobot developer framework that has native help for Python, Java, and Scala. As a result of this integration is native to the DataRobot AI Platform, you get your time again with one frictionless expertise. 

One-Click on Mannequin Deployment and Monitoring in Snowflake

As soon as skilled fashions are able to be deployed, you possibly can operationalize them in Snowflake with a single click on. Supported fashions will be deployed straight into Snowflake as a Java UDF by DataRobot. This performance contains with the ability to deploy fashions, constructed outdoors of DataRobot, in Snowflake. This implies you possibly can carry a mannequin straight into the ruled runtime of Snowflake, permitting companies to make correct predictions in-database on delicate knowledge at scale, and with out the fuss of configuration. One-click mannequin deployment additionally offers ML practitioners the flexibleness to make use of regular queries or extra superior options like Saved Procedures from inside Snowflake to learn scoring knowledge, rating knowledge, and write predictions.

One-Click Model Deployment and Monitoring in Snowflake - DataRobot

Together with one-click mannequin deployment come extra strong monitoring capabilities, permitting for ongoing monitoring of not simply deployment service well being, but additionally drift and accuracy. Mannequin alternative is made straightforward with retraining and deployment workflows to make sure enterprise-grade reliability of manufacturing machine studying on Snowflake. 

Snowflake and DataRobot: Combining Knowledge and AI for Enterprise Outcomes

The brand new Snowflake and DataRobot integration offers organizations a singular and scalable enterprise platform for knowledge and AI pushed enterprise outcomes. We shrunk the ML cycle time, and made it straightforward so that you can experiment extra, put together datasets and construct ML fashions quick, after which get these fashions out into manufacturing to drive worth even sooner. 

Torsten Grabs, Director of Product Management at Snowflake, and Venky Veeraraghavan, CPO DataRobot

Check out the brand new integration and tell us what you want. Be taught extra from Torsten Grabs, Director of Product Administration at Snowflake, who will share extra about these new modern capabilities on the DataRobot digital on-demand occasion: From Imaginative and prescient to Worth: Creating Affect with AI. Be part of us on March 16 and see extra of the DataRobot and Snowflake integration first hand!
