Gartner: AWS, Google, Microsoft Lead Cloud AI Developer Market
From AWS and Google to Baidu and H2O.ai, here are the 11 companies that made Gartner’s 2023 Cloud AI Developer Services Magic Quadrant, along with their strengths and weaknesses.
Amazon Web Services won the gold medal for execution and ranks second for vision on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud AI Developer Services. AWS’s approach to sales and pricing has attracted hundreds of thousands of customers to its cloud AI developer service offerings. The Seattle-based company’s portfolio is competitively priced with no minimum fees or upfront commitments and customers pay only for what they use. AWS provides Amazon SageMaker and other popular language and vision services, designed to automate the full AI and ML lifecycle from development to operations.
Strength: AWS has a massive global cloud infrastructure. Its Availability Zones provide greater coverage than any of its competitors, and AWS makes it easy for customers to deploy their models across multiple Availability Zones, Gartner said.
Weakness: Though AWS has plans for a multicloud solution, AWS currently offers few options for customers seeking multicloud. If cloud portability is high among customers’ priorities, Gartner said they should consider vendors that can run natively on various clouds.
