We believe that data analytics and software development can be achieved optimally through a team effort. Organizations that successfully built AI platforms for use in-house were successful not only because they had the best software developers, data scientists, and infrastructure architects but because they also had the best organizational structure and team-work ethic to achieve something greater than a group acting in isolation. This white paper considers how Domino Data Science Platform can be used to accelerate your data science research and development initiatives through close collaboration among cross-team members. It also includes information about the components that make up Dell EMC Ready Solution for AI and a design demonstrating the architecture and considerations for building an infrastructure environment for data science workloads.
Even within a major skill set such as data science, the needs of different organizations vary. Some organizations have standardized on a small set of tools, frameworks, and associated libraries for machine learning. Therefore, they do not value multilanguage and multiframe work flexibility as highly as those organizations with more diverse needs for those tools.
When choosing specialized AI platforms, it is important to consider the IT infrastructure architects and operations professionals. Data science and intelligent software development are iterative experimental workflows. The team needs to try multiple paths of data acquisition, cleaning, and model development and determine which best fits the needs of the stakeholders. Some aspects of this process are unfamiliar to many IT professionals who might view typical data analytics work as chaotic. Integrating such diverse backgrounds into one team that can cooperate seamlessly and make well-informed decisions is a challenge.
Domino Data Science Platform enables you to realize the results of the models and AI capabilities quickly. A significant challenge in data science is the availability of the required skill sets within an organization. With Domino Data Science Platform, your highly skilled data science team can be more productive and focus on applying their skills to your AI initiatives. In addition, a single platform drives integrations between functional boundaries within a company by providing a single place to collaborate and track progress.
