Who is this presentation for?

  • Data scientists, machine learning engineers, DevOps engineers, and project and product managers



Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with Docker, Kubernetes, APIs, and cloud hosting

What you'll learn

  • Understand the major challenges of productionizing ML models, common roadblocks on the path to scalable deployment, and how to solve these problems


You’ve spent hundreds of hours cleaning your data, engineering features, and training and tuning your model to pinpoint accuracy. But now it’s time to deploy your model into production.

Whether you lead a team of data scientists or are one yourself, you know how time-consuming and problematic deployment can be. Language and environment incompatibilities, manual and duplicative processes, out-of-control costs, and poor communication can destroy all the work you’ve put into building models and slow your machine learning efforts.

Learning common deployment architectures for machine learning in the real world and understanding how to build your model for a production environment can help you avoid pitfalls when scaling up. Diego Oppenheimer discusses common problems and solutions and shares best practices from leading organizations that have solved the deployment headache.

Hi Diego,

I saw that you are a speaker at the Strata Conference; I’m looking forward to your presentation. I have been following your company for the last couple of months and I am very impressed with your success. We have also spoken on LinkedIn. I would love to introduce myself and discuss a strategic partnership with your company. I have helped many companies in the Big Data and Analytics space such as Amazon, Bosch, Samsung, Graphcore, LG Eletronics MapR, Platfora, Couchbase, Snowflake, MongoDB, E8 Security, Imply, Streamsets, and many more with their challenging hiring needs.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon. Good luck with your speech.
