InterSystems introduces QuickML to add machine learning, with the new enhancement for InterSystems IRIS Data Platform, application developers can now easily add automation and predictions to applications without being experts.
InterSystems, a provider of information technology platforms for health, business, and government applications, has launched QuickML, available to users of the InterSystems IRIS Data Platform and the InterSystems IRIS for Health Data Platform. The announcement was made at InterSystems Global Summit 2019, the company's annual conference, which is currently being held in Boston. By putting best-of-breed machine learning (ML) within the hands of SQL-oriented developers, QuickML enables organizations to put predictions within their existing applications without needing extremely-scarce ML expert engineers.
Data is at the core of most business processes, and ML offers amazing power for digital transformation but the economics of extracting value from this resource is challenging. Development teams are increasingly required to build ML capabilities into data-intensive solutions, but very few of them have the internal resources or necessary expertise to effectively apply such functionality. QuickML solves this issue through an automated ML function available within a familiar all-SQL syntax. QuickML simplifies the process of building, testing, and deploying ML models and speeds the process of integrating them into production applications.
"QuickML allows all developers using InterSystems IRIS to embed machine learning capabilities in their applications in a simple and scalable format. In this way, we see QuickML enabling all of our application partners to deliver accurate predictions as part of their tool set. The InterSystems IRIS Data Platform powers some of the most important applications on the planet, and QuickML completes the data science suite of functionality. Used in conjunction with our Spark Connector and Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) runtime engine, data scientists and developers have a suite of tools that serve well in high-performance, large-scale data-centric deployments," said Scott Gnau, vice president of Data Platforms at InterSystems.
QuickML will be available in a forthcoming InterSystems IRIS release as a native ML capability.
