Initial Setup

The initial set-up was easy. I have not explored using this on AWS clusters.

Implementation Team

We did an in-house implementation and development for our regression tool.

ROI

The ROI will be an in-house product to do machine learning analytics on data obtained from customer.

Other Solutions Considered

We did not evaluate any other products.

Other Advice

It's easy to use and has a learning curve.
