Overall Satisfaction with Amazon SageMaker

At my previous company, I worked for a top social media brand on their recruiting models and functions. In this role, they were utilizing Amazon SageMaker in its early stages. Because of this, I was tasked with training and onboarding these employees in the use of the tool and guide them through this process. It addressed the problems of building and managing the machine learning process but takes away a lot of the unmanageable parts of this.
  • Provides enough freedom for experienced data scientists and also for those who just need things done without going much deeper into building models.
  • Customization and easy to alter and change.
  • If you already are an Amazon user, you do not need to transition over to another software.
  • I think that although the algorithms are there and you are using one click, there could be more detailed descriptions located in places so that other users are able to easily find the right formula and tools.
  • Mobile friendly options would be a huge plus, even tracking what employees are using this tool for in regards to reporting.
  • Use of this tool across areas of our organization has allowed for more time to be spent on other things as this is taking a lot of the heavy lifting and developing out of the machine learning process all together.
  • Database of algorithms ready to use and adjust, customizing is key with this group of employees and their daily work while using this software.
We have not invested in another machine learning software at this time and so far this has proved very successful with our machine learning teams. As mentioned, I am training these individuals simply on the fundamentals of the software and using it/customizing it for their needs. It has been very easy to do this and has gotten great reviews across the organization so far.
It allows for one-click processes and for things to be auto checked before they are moved through the process but through the system. It also makes training easy. I am able to train users on the basic fundamentals of the tool and how it is used very easily as it is fully managed on its own which is incredible.
