C3’s mission is to provide enterprises from a variety of industries (energy, finance, oil and gas, healthcare, etc.) with robust, scalable applications that deliver AI-driven insights. Common AI use cases within these applications involve inventory optimization, anomaly detection, predictive maintenance, and more. While C3’s ultimate vision is to provide out-of-the-box applications for these various industries and use cases, there are typically challenging custom configurations requested by customers, which makes the application development process quite challenging for internal C3 developers.
As a result, C3 developed its own internal data management, ML model evaluation, and deployment pipeline product called IDS (Integrated Development Studio). This tool was intended to provide internal developers and data scientists with GUI to help evaluate and monitor the various artifacts (data models, ML models, deployment pipelines) in their respective workflows.
