As organizations increase their use and spending ($110.7 billion by 2024) on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), they face challenges in data management, deployment complexity, and data availability. Many frameworks and toolkits in the industry attempt to make data more scalable and easier to deploy, but most fail to address the crucial challenge of data management and data availability. Many also feature proprietary data platforms that lack proven, enterprise-class reliability.
The NetApp® AI Control Plane and Data Science Toolkit address these challenges. They simplify data management, streamline AI workflows, and help you get the most out of your data.
