Dataiku, one of the world’s leading AI and machine learning platforms,says that it is now available through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. This availability opens the door for Azure customers to take advantage of Dataiku’s easy-to-use visual interface to build data pipelines, prepare data, and build and deploy machine learning models on their cloud.
Azure customers can now purchase Dataiku – a leader in AI and support for elastic cloud computing – using their Azure cloud budget and relationship, removing the barrier of new contracts or legal hassles when starting their journey to enterprise AI at scale. With Dataiku, everyone across the organization can create and interact with AI to make smarter decisions, deliver better customer experiences, and automate key processes.
“AI and cloud really go together,” said Florian Douetteau, CEO of Dataiku. “With Dataiku in the Azure Marketplace, we think more organizations will be able to leverage the power of AI on the cloud to make smarter, faster decisions, deliver better customer experiences, and automate key business processes.”
Dataiku’s availability in the Azure Marketplace also ensures that the platform is fully integrated with Azure storage and compute services. Dataiku’s unique push-down architecture and elastic integrations take advantage of native cloud computing resources to both push down work to cloud computing resources like Spark and Kubernetes and also automatically spin up and spin down compute resources for the data preparation, model building, and model scoring jobs orchestrated on Dataiku, so customers only pay for what they need.
Customers who use Dataiku through Azure have seamless access to data stored on Azure; can scale data pipelines and machine learning processes by leveraging compute clusters; can connect, visualize, transform, and analyze datasets stored in SQL databases; and can leverage a broad range of Microsoft technologies. This includes preparing, modeling, and exporting data to Power BI, using Azure Cognitive Services to apply pre-trained NLP and computer vision models, and developing Dataiku recipes or plugins using Visual Studio Code.
Jake Zborowski, General Manager, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp., said, “We’re pleased to welcome Dataiku to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from global trusted partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure.”
