AWS, Microsoft, Google Top Cloud AI Developer Market: Gartner
CRN breaks down the strengths and weaknesses from the 13 vendors that made Gartner’s new 2022 Magic Quadrant for Cloud AI Developer Services.
Niche Player: H2O.ai
H2O.ai offers a platform that provides language, vision and autoML services that can run in cloud, on-premises, edge and hybrid environments.
The H2O AI Cloud grew tremendously in 2021, Gartner said, as the Mountain View, Calif.-based company remains a thought leader in autoML across structured, time-series, image, video, audio, text and document data.
H2O.ai is a major open-source contributor with 20,000 companies supporting H2O.ai’s open-source offering and more than 1 million users. It ranks among the middle of the pack for both vision and execution on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant.
Strength: H2O.ai has been aggressively revamping its sales approach. It has introduced a consumption pricing model, whereby customers consume cloud AI units that can be applied to any H2O AI Cloud service.
Weakness: H2O.ai has resource constraints that affect its ability to cover global operations, especially in regions where its presence is growing.
