External Model Proxy for Challengers and Compliance

This new offering enables data scientists to leverage the DataRobot AI Platform’s powerful, out-of-the-box features, such as automated compliance documentation and challengers for models that are hosted outside of the DataRobot platform. This capability extends the flexibility and support DataRobot provides for external models, eliminating the need to move them into the DataRobot platform. Using the DataRobot interface, data scientists can easily connect to externally hosted models to generate compliance reports or use these models as challengers. This feature is available on-prem only.

Within DataRobot, data scientists can define parameters, such as keys, passwords, or other controls, for any model. This makes it easy to quickly update information related to the model without changing the actual model. For example, a change in a password can easily be updated as a parameter without manually changing the model. These capabilities simplify management, governance, and compliance across all your AI models, whether they are hosted within DataRobot or elsewhere.

Custom Metrics

Calculate and track custom metrics, including business KPIs to supplement the rich metrics already provided by DataRobot. Data scientists can build and use complex or simple metrics within the DataRobot AI Platform. Custom metrics can be fed easily into business applications to track specific KPIs. These metrics can be used in model documentation for analysis with a DataRobot API, and values can be computed retrospectively for models that were not originally created within DataRobot.

Deployment History

This feature enhances the DataRobot champion-challenger framework with a new capability to maintain deployment history even when the champion model is changed. For example, when you replace a champion model, you can now view the history of important metrics, such as accuracy or predictions over time. This allows you to compare these models, track performance indicators over time, and validate whether model replacement was the right decision. Improved visibility into deployment performance enables data scientists to make informed decisions regarding models in production, such as retraining or replacing champion models.

Extending Snowflake Integration: Model Deployment, Scoring, and Monitoring

Introducing improvements and new capabilities for customers to maximize their Snowflake investment. Be more productive and take advantage of better data governance with a seamless user experience when deploying and monitoring DataRobot models to Snowflake.

When deploying a DataRobot model to Snowflake, this new seamless integration significantly improves the user experience and reduces time and effort, while eliminating user errors. When models are deployed to Snowflake, leverage Snowpark to score the data for speed and elasticity without data movement.

Snowflake deployment

Additionally, a new capability allows you to seamlessly monitor and govern models that are deployed to Snowflake from the DataRobot GUI. This functionality helps you keep track of your business decisions based on predictions and actual data changes and leverage DataRobot MLOps capabilities to determine the model’s health and accuracy.

Snowflake External OAuth

The Snowflake External OAuth configuration is now available for all customers. This feature allows the implementation of external identity providers supported by Snowflake External OAuth, without providing user and password credentials to DataRobot, allowing you to keep your security and controls, while integrating your existing tools.

Python API for Scoring Code

The new official Python API for Scoring code from DataRobot makes it easy and efficient to use DataRobot-generated models outside the platform. This API has been designed keeping in mind the popular data science libraries, thus making it as simple as passing a pandas DataFrame to the API and getting one back in return. Enterprises using Databricks Notebooks will now have a more seamless experience with DataRobot. The API will be published to PyPi, making it easy for data science practitioners to install and use as part of their usual workflow.
