Overview of ModelOps

Organizations increasingly depend on machine learning (ML) models to transform enormous amounts of data into new insights and information. These ML models are not constrained by the number of data dimensions they can successfully access, and they can detect patterns in large volumes of unstructured data for predictive purposes. Model development and deployment, on the other hand, are challenging. Only approximately half of all models are ever put into production, and those take at least three months to complete. This time and effort equate to a significant operating expense, as well as a delayed time to value.

All models deteriorate, and if they are not maintained regularly, their performance degrades. Models are similar to automobiles in that frequent maintenance is required to guarantee optimal performance. Model performance is determined not just by the model itself but also by data, fine-tuning, regular updates, and retraining.

What is ModelOps?

ModelOps is a competency that focuses on putting models into continuous production 24 hours a day, seven days a week. ModelOps enables you to transfer models as rapidly as possible from the lab to validation, testing, and production while assuring quality outcomes. It allows you to manage and scale models to match demand while continually monitoring them for early symptoms of deterioration.

A genuine ModelOps framework enables uniformity and scalability across these different settings, allowing development, training, and deployment procedures to operate consistently and platform-independently.

Why we need ModelOps?

ModelOps is an extension of MLOps that includes significant capabilities such as continuous retraining, automatic updating, and synchronized creation of more sophisticated machine learning models in addition to routine deployment of machine learning models. Gartner states that having fully operationalized analytics capabilities positions ModeOps right between DataOps and DevOps.

ModelOps enables analytical models to be transferred from the data science team to the IT production team for regular deployment and updates, including validation, testing, and production, as rapidly as feasible while assuring quality outcomes. Furthermore, it enables the management and scaling of models to fit demand and continuous monitoring of them to detect and correct early symptoms of deterioration.

ModelOps enables technology to converge multiple AI objects, solutions, and AI frameworks while maintaining scalability and governance. Click to explore about, What is ModelOps and its Operationalization?

Why ModelOps is beneficial?

Although it is not extensively used, ModelOps can assist organizations facing increasing problems in scaling their analytics in moving models from the data science lab to IT production. ModelOps can help organizations leverage analytics' predictive powers and deliver substantial time and money savings by providing regular updates and deployments. These models are maintained, scaled, monitored, and retrained to put them into production.

How ModelOps improve the efficiency of AI projects?

Below highlighted are the ways by which ModelOps empower the efficiency of Artificial Intelligence:

Addressing the gap between model deployment and model governance with ModelOps

Models have always been seen as critical corporate assets, and AI models demonstrate their capacity to provide considerable value. Enterprises rapidly realize that capturing this value continually while controlling risk necessitates ModelOps strategies for the AI era. As a result, they're investing ModelOps.

ModelOps is quickly becoming a fundamental business competency, with companies investing in more efficient procedures and systems for deploying AI models.

Problems that ModelOps can Solve

  • One of the reasons a ModelOps method is required is owing to a machine learning feature known as "model degradation." All models deteriorate, and if they are not maintained regularly, their performance degrades. This occurs when a data science team assesses model performance early in a project, observes good accuracy, and chooses to proceed. Unfortunately, machine learning models frequently interact with real-world data, and their accuracy might deteriorate with time. ModelOps is helpful for automatically detecting model deterioration, updating a model, and deploying it to production.
  • ModelOps allows you to manage and scale models to match demand while continually monitoring them for early symptoms of deterioration. A business is unable to scale and control AI efforts without ModelOps capabilities. The solution to model decay (or drift) is to have a robust model stewardship strategy in your company.

Benefits at each Level

  • Deploy - During development and deployment
  1. Data scientists may be creative when building models to meet corporate demands.
  2. Packaging approaches may require less involvement from DevOps teams/software engineers.
  3. IT does not need to build a separate environment for each model while maintaining control over data pipeline setup and infrastructure optimization.
  4. Model review, testing, and approvals are automated, and all participants may see the procedures.
  5. Business unit managers see models applied more quickly.
  • Monitor - The execution is efficient and consistent, and it is followed by ongoing monitoring:
  1. Model correctness, performance, data quality, and the demands put on business infrastructure are evaluated regularly so that changes may be implemented as soon as possible.
  2. Retraining and redeployment help to promote continuous model improvement.
  • Govern
  1. With proper leadership, the organization can be certain that not only are the right versions of models deployed but that older versions can be reproduced if needed for audit or compliance purposes.

Conclusion

The strategic power of AI has been fully demonstrated across numerous sectors and enterprises. This has increased model production. However, investments in the people, procedures, and technologies for model operationalization, i.e., ModelOps — have lagged. To handle day-to-day ModelOps tasks, organizations must develop specialized model operator or model engineer positions.

There is a developing understanding of the function, the issues it solves, the possibilities it generates, and the investments required to sustain it. ModelOps, like DevOps, ITOps, and SecOps before it, is poised to become a key business role in its own right as global AI use advances.
