  • Data Science Platform Architecture

    It is estimated there are over 300 tools and technologies in the data science universe. In addition, data science development and production environments have their own unique characteristics and requirements that make them different than traditional architectures. In this presentation Ryan will discuss the stages of a data science platform, the development and production lifecycle, and the types of choices you make along the way to architect a platform to support your analytical teams. The presentation will be more of a high-level view than technical deep-dive though some technical explanations will be included. The appropriate audience ranges from people wanting to learn about the topic to people facing these architecture choices.
