H2O.ai Expands Snowflake Partnership Enabling Successful AI Transformations for Customers
AI Cloud Leader Awarded Elite Partner Certification to Strengthen User Experience with Competency Badge at Snowflake Summit.
H2O.ai, the AI Cloud leader, showcased a unique set of capabilities and use cases that enable rich insights by seamlessly connecting data and machine learning.
Snowflake and H2O.ai bring platforms for data and machine learning together to help more customers around the world innovate with AI through a native integration that allows users to access all of H2O.ai’s advanced machine learning capabilities directly from their Snowflake environment. Through multiple pre-built integrations, users can easily leverage H2O.ai machine learning capabilities for near real-time analysis from within the Snowflake Data Cloud. This shortens learning cycles, significantly reduces processing time, ensures predictions are based on the most recent data and makes those predictions available to any application built on top of Snowflake.
Customers like Infutor leveraged the H2O.ai integration with Snowflake powered by Snowpark and Java User-Defined Functions (UDF) to reduce the need for other platforms and reduce the costs of using AI.
“H2O.ai reduced our AI inference costs on Snowflake by 55X,” said Gary Walter, CEO of Infutor, a Verisk business. “H2O.ai partnership and support has made the integration that much more seamless and easy to leverage.”
