I think for anyone using SageMaker it will help automate pipelines, and make it easier than doing the process manually. For anyone already on the AWS platform, they should definitely make use of it. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

Myself and certain people in my team have just begun the training. There is an eight-hour training video to assist with learning how to use this solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to think about using multiple cloud services. This solution is really good but it has a few problems. In terms of deployment, it is a clear winner. For developing machine learning models, taking the user experience into account, I would probably still opt for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio. Overall, there are a few improvements that I want but SageMaker is pretty good. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

I am not exposed to Amazon SageMaker but I know it's capabilities. I know exactly what we can do and how we can do it. We have been provided with several solutions for image processing, speech processing, and text processing. They have provided a built-in solution for every task. You can use tools for deploying your model, you just have to plug and play. There is no cessation from what I can see. Whatever they have in the industry, they can solve 98% of the use cases. There is also data engineering which is quite important. It's where the real work is done. Amazon has already provided a free slot for each of the services that we have done. With Amazon SageMaker, however, I have not seen that. I have not yet explored everything, but they are doing good work. In terms of the dashboard, I can say that I have not explored the visualization aspect very much, but they have their tools. I don't know how flexible it is and how much customization you can do. That's something on the visualization side that I don't enjoy very much. My interests are mostly towards data engineering or data science. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
