Feature stores will do for machine learning what the cloud did for big data.
Businesses are on the cusp of a Cambrian explosion in the field of machine and deep learning.
However, this will be stalled without the ability to scale AI and one of the biggest obstacles to overcome, is how to meet the demands of the business in a timeframe and cost that is compelling.
To truly leverage data assets, businesses need to collapse the time it takes to train, deploy and manage their machine learning models.
Failure to adopt feature store technology could affect your ability to compete or maintain and grow market share.
Our data platforms practice specialises in data strategy, technology delivery and adoption as well as transition to data operations. They will help you to scale out your machine learning ambitions whilst enhancing your exisiting investments, helping you to comply with increasing compliance and regulatory requirements.
We bring the right blend of both delivery expertise and innovative data solutions to solve our clients’ most pressing needs.
We will establish your feature store readiness by looking at where you are today and what the opportunities are to leverage machine learning in order to propel your business forward.
What sets us apart is our ability to define a strategy which is deliverable, not just what you want to hear.
What are the business drivers?
The feature store is a centralised feature hub where you curate all the features, data and decisions that your business has ever made.
Improve decision making
Having a feature store will allow insight into what data is important and common across your machine learning models.
This will give insight into where to invest in data collection and data quality to further improve your data and business decision-making quality.
Increase ability to scale
As common machine learning archetypes start to evolve, being able to scale your data management capability to server consistent feature sets is vital.
Feature stores allow your machine learning team to scale up considerably, investing in data curation and collection, whilst creating a solid foundation to manage both your training data and feature serving.
Create monetisation potential
The ability of feature stores to define and store large amounts of highly curated features and track change over time, represents a potentially lucrative opportunity for both the machine learning teams and the wider organisation.
This data can then be packaged and sold as a feature service.
Improve decision fidelity
In an age of increasing data governance, feature stores should form an integral part of your organisation’s governance model, tracking feature drift and highlight areas of concern proactively.
The ‘decision vault’ that a feature store provides will ensure decision fidelity, allowing you to justify historical business decisions.
Improve business efficiency
Having a feature store could revolutionise the resource you have by placing less burden on your data science team, freeing up time which can be deployed training models elsewhere in the business.
How we help
Drawing on the expertise of our DevOps and DataOps specialists, we will guide you on your journey towards the successful scale out of machine learning in your business, using the feature store.

Kickstarting your ModelOps journey
It’s vital to ensure that your AI is kept fit and effective. The first step in doing so is understanding the need to consistently curate your AI models. To do this, you need an effective ModelOps team. AI is evolving quickly and businesses need to ensure that their teams evolve to deliver against business and regulatory needs, whilst empowering their people too.

Building a knowledge graph
Getting more insight and value from a business’s data, for example through machine learning, first requires a considered view of the data estate. An increasingly popular method is to build a knowledge graph of all data assets in the business.

Use cases for graph databases
A graph database stores information as relationships between entities, and represents this data using nodes and edges, instead of using rows and columns in tables. But what are some of best use cases for graph databases?

Smart Blockchain – the digital backbone of your business
As Blockchain matures in the enterprise setting, the need to integrate more and more artificial intelligence (AI) into the transaction will increase, and we will start to see the promise it holds – in particular, when it comes to Digital Business Process Management.

Blockchain — time to innovate?
At a recent event hosted by 6point6 and SBC Colab FinTech at Techspace Shoreditch, we explored the state of Blockchain’s ability to be ready for mass business adoption, looking in particular at whether or not this technology was ready for prime time or merely a catalyst for change.
