Customers using Azure Machine Learning
Jolie Vitale, Director of BI and Analytics, Carhartt
"The model we deployed on Azure Machine Learning helped us choose the three new retail locations we opened in 2019. Those stores exceeded their revenue plans by over 200 percent in December, the height of our season, and within months of opening were among the best-performing stores in their districts."
Ignasi Paredes-Oliva, Lead Data Scientist, Nestlé Global Security Operations Center
"MLOps is at the core of our product. Because of its reproducible ML pipelines, ... registered models, and automatic model scoring, we're definitely detecting things that we missed before. Which, in terms of risk management, is really, really important."
Joey Chua, Senior Manager Machine Learning Engineering, AGL
"Azure Machine Learning allows us to manage the entire lifecycle, from experimentation and development to production and enhancements."
Dean Riddlesden, Senior Data Scientist, Global Analytics, Walgreens Boots Alliance
"If I have 200 models to train—I can just do this all at once. It can be farmed out to a huge compute cluster, and it can be done in minutes. So I'm not waiting for days."
Alex Mohelsky, Partner and Advisory Data, Analytic, and AI Leader, EY Canada
"We see Azure Machine Learning and our partnership with Microsoft as critical to driving increased adoption and acceptance of AI from the regulators."
