Abstract: A mature machine learning program hinges on the ability to manage and govern models in production at enterprise-scale. Without that ability, machine learning models will not yield insights that lead to business value and companies will overspend trying to get there themselves. It’s important for every company to develop a machine learning roadmap and chart a path toward their intended goals and maturity, taking into consideration the risks and challenges involved.
To start, companies must first understand where they are on the ML timeline and then begin to chart a path toward maturity with a solution for operating and managing a machine learning program. The path will involve a confluence of people, tools, and resources, making it the most vital aspect of a fledgling ML program.
