Jumpstart your data lake with the Slalom and Databricks AI Lakehouse Accelerator
Slalom, the global business and technology consulting company, is excited to announce that the popular AI Lakehouse Accelerator has been selected for the new Databricks’ Brickbuilder Accelerators program, a collection of vetted and proven partner accelerators designed to help businesses get up and running on the Databricks Lakehouse Platform quickly.
As technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, the AI Lakehouse Accelerator is an excellent way for businesses to quickly modernize their data estates and get started with generative AI and machine learning, regardless of where they are in their data modernization journey.
“What we're hearing loud and clear is that our clients are yearning for a more simplified approach to data and AI," said Tony Ko, managing director of global data + AI at Slalom. "Customers are buzzing around the Databricks Lakehouse Platform and its ability to bring modern data analytics to enterprises, natively supporting the whole machine learning process from start to finish. By partnering and leveraging the AI Lakehouse Accelerator, we're saying: 'Let's not just talk about the future – let's enable businesses to get there faster, gearing up for all the exciting AI and ML breakthroughs in record time.'"
Slalom’s AI Lakehouse Accelerator is an eight-week engagement where a team of Slalom data architects, engineers, and analysts stand up a production-grade data lakehouse and test high-value machine learning use cases. The engagement includes configuring cloud infrastructure, setting up development operations (DevOps) pipelines, setting up data pipelines, orchestrating data, and curating a use case framework to enable organizations to onboard new data sources in under an hour. This is made possible using metadata driven pipelines that reduce the time and effort needed to ingest data sources, which in turn allows data teams to spend more of their time creating value by curating business-ready datasets.
“The AI Lakehouse Accelerator simplifies loading data into a Lakehouse so data teams can focus on what really matters—extracting value from data. As a trusted partner, Slalom is well placed to help our customers get value from their data quickly” said Christine Gauthier, Databricks senior director and Brickbuilder Program lead.
