How Winder Research Helps Build Your Product

Winder Research can help you build your product thanks to years experience on all sides of ML.

Why is Winder Research the Perfect Partner?

Our services are incredibly valuable because of the unique confluence of experiences.

  • We’re renowned experts in the usage of machine learning and reinforcement learning. This provides valuable insight as a data scientist persona.
  • We’re also founding members of the MLOps community and have delivered countless MLOps consulting and Operational MLOps projects. This provides valuable insight as an operational persona.
  • Finally, we’ve developed an array of solutions for a variety of vendors. This proves that we have the skills to deliver projects, no matter the product.

These three experiences converge to provide you with the perfect combination of skills. We can help you define the product, develop the implementation, and have the data science know-how to show people how to use it.

What Are your Ways of Working?

Flexibility

Winder Research is a boutique consultancy specializing in the development and operation of data science technologies. Our small size lends us agility and flexibility.

Whilst larger, monolithic consultancies may enforce a way of working, by specifying minimum team sizes or including unnecessary people in the contract, we do not. We work to your way of working.

If you want us to integrate with your team, we can do that. If you want us to work independently to reduce coupling, that’s fine too. Whatever is best for you.

From SOW’s to Time & Materials

Many of our clients choose to operate on a statement of work (SOW) basis, which is good when you want full control over the completed work. The downside of this approach is that refinement of the SOW can take a long time, which slows down development.

Other clients operate on a more agile approach, where weekly or bi-weekly planning meetings schedule the direction and tasks for the upcoming week(s). This works well when you want to develop a solution quickly, or you have dependencies on other people or teams.

Remote Working

Although Winder Research is based in the UK, the team is distributed across Europe. Since inception, we’ve operated entirely remotely, so there was no change to our working conditions when the COVID pandemic struck. If COVID has taught us anything, it’s reminded us that remote working is not only efficient, but optimal, especially when expertise like ours is so hard to find.

Therefore, all of our projects operate remotely, except for occasional meetings and planning sessions that are better done in person.

Product Development

The team at Winder Research are experienced data science practitioners, which helps us build products that are relevant to your users.

Vendors like you can take advantage of our expertise to help them deliver their product. People like Grafana did this to create their new ML-driven monitoring capability, which required designing a bespoke integrated MLOps solution from scratch. As leaders in this space We’ve also helped Modzy and grid.ai to build out their platforms and offerings.

Winder Research is able to deliver fully self-managed incremental product improvements. This alleviates the burden from your team and shortens development timelines. Our experts can also integrate tightly with your ways of working for a collaborative solution.

Integrations

Leverage our MLOps expertise to rapidly develop new integrations for your product.

Because we are vendor neutral and cloud agnostic, we have a wide range of experience across all parts of the MLOps spectrum. This means it is very likely that we already have experience in the product you are wanting to integrate.

Our open source project combinator.ml allows us to deliver a “kick the tyres” version of your product alongside the integrating solution. This provides your users with a instant spin-up “test drive” functionality.

Companies like Pachyderm work with us to complete their integrations projects. For example, we’ve recently completed a project to provide tight integration between Pachyderm and Seldon.

How To Build a Robust ML Workflow With Pachyderm and Seldon

This article outlines the technical design behind the Pachyderm-Seldon Deploy integration available on GitHub and is intended to highlight the salient features of the demo. For an in depth overview watch the accompanying video on YouTube. Introduction Pachyderm and Seldon run on top of Kubernetes, a scalable orchestration system; here I explain their installation process, then I use an example use case to illustrate how to operate a release, rollback, fix, re-release cycle in a live ML deployment.

How We Built an MLOps Platform Into Grafana

Winder Research collaborated with Grafana Labs to help them build a Machine Learning (ML) capability into Grafana Cloud. A summary of this work includes: Product consultancy and positioning - delivering the best product and experience Design and architecture of MLOps backend - highly scalable - capable of running training jobs for thousands of customers Tight integration with Grafana - low integration costs - easy product enablement Grafana’s Need - Machine Learning Consultancy and Development Grafana Cloud is a successful cloud-native monitoring solution developed by Grafana Labs.

Improving Data Science Strategy at Neste

Winder Research helped Neste develop their data science strategy to nudge their data scientists to produce more secure, more robust, production ready products. The results of this work were: A unified company-wide data science strategy Simplified product development - “just follow the process” More robust, more secure products Decreased to-market time Our Client Neste is an energy company that focuses on renewables. The efficiency and optimization savings that machine learning, artificial intelligence and data science can provide play a key role in their strategy.
