Our CTO Stu will be attending and presenting at the PAPI'16 conference in October. The title of his talk is Prediction | Production: Lessons from ‘Over-the-wall’, and is a talk centered on what it really means to be ready to deploy analytics. The concept of an analytic deployment environment will be discussed, in addition to the organization competencies required to fully monetize data science investments. The abstract is below, andif you are in Boston, we hope to see you there.
Data Science and Dev Ops teams live on opposite sides of a wall in most organizations. Despite the separation, these teams should work together to develop a coherent process to release analytic products, support those products and maintain sanity. We propose an institutional capability, ‘Analytic Operations’, to support data-driven processes within lines-of-business. We hope to share lessons learned practicing Analytic Ops and present a set of best practices for Analytic Ops teams. We also demo open source tools that reduce frictions between Data Science and Ops/Deployment teams.
