Teradata (NYSE: TDC), a connected multi-cloud data platform for enterprise analytics, and H2O.ai, a cloud platform provider for artificial intelligence (AI), have integrated H2O.ai’s AI platform, AI Hybrid Cloud, with Teradata’s multi-cloud data platform, Vantage. Clients of Teradata and H2O.ai can now “rapidly and simply” create, implement, and run AI solutions that address business challenges and produce business value thanks to the integration.
With Teradata Vantage, data engineers and data scientists can analyze and prepare data for machine learning at scale using familiar languages like R, Python, and SQL. This would allow the business to reduce the amount of time it takes to prepare data for analysis, which is a time-consuming procedure in AI initiatives. With comprehensive automatic feature engineering, automatic method selection, and automatic model validation, H2O AI Hybrid Cloud helps data scientists speed up the model building process.
The two platforms combined would give enterprise clients the flexibility to design and deploy AI programs rapidly and at scale, regardless of where their data is stored – in the cloud, across multiple clouds, or in hybrid IT environments.
“Customers tell us that disconnected data, analytics and AI platforms slow down their AI initiatives,” said Sri Ambati, Founder and CEO of H2O.ai. “The integration of H2O AI Hybrid Cloud with Teradata Vantage provides seamless alignment between the platforms, unifying data stores of all kinds, analytics and AI, so our customers can rapidly access more data to inform new insights that result in more accurate and informed business decisions.”
Deploying Complex AI Solutions
Organizations may explore a variety of use cases thanks to the integration of H2O AI Hybrid Cloud with Vantage, ranging from fraud protection and anomaly detection to customer attrition, pricing optimization, and customer expansion. The integrated solution would expand the potential of every AI endeavor that clients wish to assess in order to make better business decisions.
“In addition to the flexible and scalable analytics environment that can consistently and reliably handle the kind of workloads that Vantage supports, we are seeing a growing interest from our enterprise customers in exploring the possibilities of AI to hone their competitive advantage,” said Hillary Ashton, Chief Product Officer at Teradata. “Vantage’s power to scale and manage petabytes of data, combined with the flexibility of both Vantage and H2O AI Hybrid Cloud to be deployed everywhere – including multi-cloud and hybrid environments – make a compelling solution for companies who want to leverage all of their data to quickly develop and deploy complex AI solutions that drive meaningful business outcomes.”
H2O.ai provides its AI solutions to more than 20,000 global organizations, including AT&T, Allergan, Bon Secours Mercy Health, Capital One, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, GlaxoSmithKline, Hitachi, Kaiser Permanente, Procter & Gamble, PayPal, PwC, Reckitt, Unilever and Walgreens, as well as over half of the Fortune 500 and one million data scientists.
