The Modzy platform and model marketplace create the missing AI layer in today’s tech stack, accelerating the deployment of AI from the lab to the enterprise. With click-to-deploy access for a growing list of AI models from leading tech companies and open source communities, and an environment to upload, manage and reuse AI models, Modzy greatly reduces risk and barriers to adopting and scaling AI. Interested customers can request an invitation to the Modzy Early Access Program, beginning today.
“Achieving the promise of AI requires much more than training the next algorithm. It’s about giving organizations choice and having a predictable and repeatable way to rapidly deploy, manage and secure AI models at enterprise scale,” said Dr. Josh Sullivan, senior vice president, Booz Allen Hamilton and Modzy executive leader. “With Modzy, Booz Allen is challenging the idea that AI has to be custom-built for each department, project or purpose. By combining our deep domain and technical expertise with that of other leading AI providers, we’re helping the U.S. government and companies deploy AI at a fraction of the price and time required to build bespoke models from scratch.”
According to Gartner, “as AI and ML [Machine Learning] initiatives mature, the biggest challenge faced by technical professionals is operationalizing ML for effective management and delivery of models.” 1
We believe Modzy addresses many of the identified barriers related to scaling trustworthy AI to the enterprise, which includes:
“Modzy will accelerate the deployment of operational AI projects so organizations can finally realize the benefit from AI’s significant business impacts,” said Adelaide O’Brien, IDC Government Insights Research Director. “Until now, AI has primarily delivered custom model creation capabilities which tend to be one-off, time intensive, expensive, and experimental. Modzy may become one of the key Marketplaces the industry needs to automatically discover, manage and deploy pre-trained models, in a highly scalable and trusted way. Booz Allen’s entry into the AI Software Platform market with Modzy may solve a significant challenge in operationalizing AI, and become the leading edge of how AI/ML models are sold, deployed and operated in the future.”
Modzy is designed to continually add new models and capabilities through its strategic relationships with recognized AI leaders.
Ben Lamm, CEO and Founder of Hypergiant Industries, said, “The Modzy platform is one step closer to ensuring the government has the technology they need to protect the American people, when they need it, how they need it and we are thrilled to apply our advanced AI capabilities to this marketplace. Together we can help government and commercial customers securely adopt and transition to trusted AI models and solutions.”
Modzy is one of a portfolio of investments Booz Allen is making to drive innovation and spur adoption of emerging technologies, in line with Booz Allen’s growth strategy of operating at the nexus of technology and our clients’ missions.
