According to a new press release, “KNIME today unveiled a groundbreaking approach — Integrated Deployment — to eliminate the gap between the creation of data science models and their use in production. Integrated Deployment allows not just a model but all of its associated preparation and post-process steps to be identified and automatically reused in production with no changes or manual work required. From within the KNIME platform, organizations can replicate the process repeatedly with ease to maintain model performance. This not only saves massive amounts of time and frees data science and model operations resources, it also dramatically reduces the risk of errors that can occur when moving from creating a model to deploying a complete production process based on that model.”
The release goes on, “Another benefit is that good governance and compliance reporting for such topics as GDPR and CCPR are fully supported since the entire creation and production processes are captured and stored in self-documenting workflows. ‘Our open approach and close collaboration with the community means that KNIME is always at the forefront of what is possible in data science. Integrated Deployment represents another big step forward,’ said Michael Berthold, CEO and co-founder of KNIME. ‘This solves perhaps one of the biggest problems in data science today by completely eliminating the gap between the art of data science creation and moving the results into production’.”
It continues, “Integrated Deployment is significant because virtually all business topics that use decision science are affected by this gap. For example, a mobile provider might develop a model to predict whether customers will renew their contracts. This model relies on call transaction data, payment data, and information about support provided. The iterative model creation process discovers that the best model is made by combining 15 pieces of data. Nine of these pieces do not exist in the raw data but were created using both traditional mathematics as well as advanced techniques. The model method itself has had settings tuned for best performance.”
