    SIGNATE offers solutions for outsourcing, hiring, and consulting services, using AI. SIGNATE is also known as a data science community with more than 16,000 members where they compete each other to produce best models in the competitions. The company also offers a service using Amazon SageMaker that helps its clients deploy the models obtained through competitions into production applications. “We are leveraging Amazon SageMaker as our principal tool to build our machine learning models and this has made our model management system called “Aldebaran” more scalable. SageMaker has enabled seamless integration into our workflows including building, training, and deploying ML models simultaneously. Previously, it used to take us 3 to 6 months to deploy models into production. With SageMaker, we can deploy a model into production in 1 to 4 weeks, saving time and increasing productivity. SageMaker is our standard ML platform of choice for all our ML models”. - Shigeru Saito, President, CEO/CDO, SIGNATE Inc.
