Do faster feature engineering

Say goodbye to UDFs and SQL-Python mashups. Write sophisticated processing functions purely in Python using any ML or data science library you like. Optimize performance with unlimited vertical and horizontal scaling with no fixed limit on the number of processes.

Integrate ML models more efficiently

Eliminate the need to run your ML models behind REST APIs or in UDFs. Deploy ML models with the same one-click workflow as your feature calculation functions and run your ML models in the same environment as the rest of your pipeline.
