The Challenge: Cutting through the complexity to realize value
Machine learning is all the talk – in all industries. Almost all organizations, though, encounter challenges along the way to making machine learning an integral part of operations:
- Some struggle to define the best place to start.
- Some lack the data science skills to build effective machine-learning models and algorithms.
- Some have the expertise to create models, but have difficulty accessing and using data and/or deploying new models quickly within the technology environment.
On top of all that, machine learning is a rapidly evolving concept with new capabilities coming to market continuously.
The Solution: Established architecture, ready for building and using machine-learning models
Our Machine Learning Accelerator solves each of these challenges so you can begin to access and use all of your data to make insight-driven business decisions.
What is the Machine Learning Accelerator? It is a micro-services architecture that we stand up between your systems and your decision makers – either in the cloud or on premise – to provide an environment for creating and running machine-learning models. Your analysts or data scientists can then use this architecture to build and apply cutting-edge machine-learning algorithms in a self-contained environment, using the tools with which they are most comfortable. Think of it as a “playground” for your data scientists that efficiently connects to any business system.
Even better, the Machine Learning Accelerator eliminates the significant IT effort required to build and manage real-time automation and decisioning from machine learning, as well as the long lead times typically associated with complex new technology initiatives.
If needed, our analytics and data science experts can supplement the Machine Learning Accelerator with additional support:
- A prioritized list of machine-learning applications based on expected value to your business
- Experienced data scientists who can create initial machine-learning applications while you begin to build internal capabilities
- Access to our Rapid Analytics Platform to prepare data for use in analytics models
- High-performance architecture for building applications that translate new insight into instant action – such as procedures based on level of fraud risk, email interventions to retain customers, or product recommendations and offers
The Impact: Insight in hours, not weeks
Built on West Monroe’s uncommon blend of business acumen and deep technology expertise, the Machine Learning Accelerator takes the mystery and complexity out of introducing or expanding the use of machine learning into your operations.
Whether you are just getting started or are struggling with the technology complexity, now you can introduce new machine learning capabilities that use all of your data and generate insight within hours rather than weeks – accelerating the value. That’s business in the right direction.
