Virtual workshop explores best practices for using open source technologies to scale your data and machine learning efforts


CHICAGO (July 16, 2020) – Wavicle Data Solutions, a leading provider of cloud engineering services, data management consulting, and data science and visualization services, today announced it will be participating with Databricks in an AWS Partner Dev Day virtual Machine Learning Workshop.


The free webinar will be live via Zoom on Thursday, July 30, from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm CDT. Participants will learn how unified data analytics can bring data science, business analytics, and engineering together to accelerate data and machine learning efforts. Wavicle data scientist, Calvin Westrick, will speak about text analytics, natural language processing, and machine learning.


While many companies wish to deploy artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to improve their businesses, one of the biggest challenges to adoption is a lack of skills, according to a survey by    Gartner, a leading research and advisory company. With this virtual workshop, Databricks and Wavicle will provide practical training to address the challenges of preparing large data sets for analytics, managing the proliferation of data and machine learning frameworks, and moving models from development to production.


Specifically, the workshop will explore:

  • How to build highly scalable and reliable pipelines for analytics
  • How to leverage Apache Spark, the de-facto data processing and data analytics engine in enterprises
  • How to use data and ML frameworks (i.e. – TensorFlow, XGBoost, Scikit-Learn, etc.)
  • How to use MLflow to track experiments, share projects, and deploy models in the cloud with Amazon SageMaker

“We see our clients in all industries looking for ways to improve their business through artificial intelligence and machine learning,” stated Naveen Venkatapathi, president of Wavicle Data Solutions. “From customer 360 initiatives to supply chain analytics, they want to get better customer intelligence, improve their products, reduce costs and risks, and much more, but one of their biggest obstacles is skills. I’m happy to work with Databricks on this workshop to help bridge that gap.”


“Enterprises today want to accelerate innovation by building data and machine learning directly into their business,” said Michael Hoff, SVP of business development and partners at Databricks. “The Databricks and AWS Machine Learning Dev Day with Wavicle is an interactive workshop, which teaches enterprises best practices to build and scale machine learning.”
