At Monsanto, emerging technologies such as IoT, advanced imaging and geo-spatial platforms; molecular breeding, ancestry and genomics data sets have made us rethink how we approach developing, deploying, scaling and distributing our software to accelerate predictive and prescriptive decisions. We created a Cloud based Data Science platform for the enterprise to address this need. Our primary goals were to perform analytics@scale and integrate analytics with our core product platforms. 
 
As part of this talk, we will be sharing our journey of transformation showing how we enabled: a collaborative discovery analytics environment for data science teams to perform model development, provisioning data through APIs, streams and deploying models to production through our auto-scaling big-data compute in the cloud to perform streaming, cognitive, predictive, prescriptive, historical and batch analytics@scale, integrating analytics with our core product platforms to turn data into actionable insights.
