This presentation will discuss how the Microsoft Azure Databricks environment enabled rapid in-market deployment of the first machine learning model within six months on billions of transactions using Apache Spark. It will also discuss several use cases for how this has driven and delivered immediate value for the business, including test and learn experimentation for how to best personalize content to customers. The presentation will also cover lessons learned on the journey in the evolving industries of cloud computing and machine learning in a dynamic healthcare environment.
