NxtGen, a Cloud Technologies and Datacenter provider in India, has launched MLOps (Machine Learning Operations) as a Service offering in a strategic alignment with Katonic.ai, a leading AI startup, to simplify, strengthen and accelerate mainstream adoption of AI by enterprises, digital native start-ups, research institutes, educational institutions, and government entities.
NxtGen’s mission is to provide MLOps platform to data engineers and data science professionals at no cost and support the wider adoption of data analytics and data science practice.
With AI and ML being implemented in the core of all operations, there is an increasing need for sound operations and risk management in the ML Model Lifecycle. Most firms lack the skills, processes, and tools required to reliably integrate ML models into business applications, processes, and drive adoption across the enterprise. Key challenges include scalability, operationalizing AI models, talent collaboration, value governance, etc. To address these challenges, NxtGen and Katonic.ai are teaming up to deliver an enterprise ready MLOps as a Service that accelerates time to value of data science projects by bringing speed and agility to the model development process. NxtGen MLOps platform simplifies the development, deployment, and management of machine learning models and brings DevOps agility and speed to the ML Model lifecycle.
NxtGen MLOps as a Service will give data teams the ability to efficiently build, train, deploy and monitor machine learning model pipelines in a platform-agnostic manner. The solution is designed to simplify machine learning deployment across verticals like financial services, insurance, health care, telecommunications, retail, pharmaceutical, and marketing. In line with NxtGen’s vision to broaden their service portfolio, the company is tying up with multiple emerging technologies and transforming those technologies as services for the enterprises which will help upskill them with augmenting new technologies and services which are pre integrated.
