If there’s one key component for AI success, it’s data. But even organizations steeped in data and well-versed in the use of analytics can struggle to establish reliable, automated data pipelines to fuel machine learning strategies.
Discover Financial Services found itself at this crossroads in 2019, when its developers and data engineers were coping with complex manual processes that devoured time and hampered the company’s agility. To fully leverage machine learning and real-time data insights, Discover needed to transform how it acquired, enriched, and used its data. Its answer? The Cloud Data Fabric, a homegrown platform that weaves together a variety of services to provide metadata-driven automation, real-time ingestion/loading, and built-in governance in the cloud.
