C3 Offers New Platform for Rapid AI Deployment

C3 has announced the general availability of Version 7.8 of its C3 Platform, an artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) software platform for digital transformation. C3 V7.8 delivers many improvements for developers, data scientists and end users, the company reports, as well as a new C3 Integrated Development Studio (C3 IDS), enhanced security, improved performance and scalability, new model management capabilities, machine-learning pipelines, local Docker development environments and new features across the suite of SaaS C3 Applications. C3 V7.8 is available immediately and has been delivered and installed in production use at 20 enterprise customers.

The performance and productivity improvements, the company reports, reduce organizational IT expenditures and accelerate AI-based digital transformation efforts by an order of magnitude. C3 V7.8 provides new model management capabilities to configure and deploy scalable models, performance improvements due to incremental data normalization, down-sampling of high-frequency time-series data, normalization and evaluation of time-series data at 1-second intervals and query-time normalization.

In addition, new virtual data lake support enables organizations to use the C3 Platform to connect to multiple, existing local data stores (SAP Hana, AWS S3, Azure Blob, Apache HDFS, Apache Hbase, Oracle Database, Postgres, Cassandra, AWS DynamoDB, SQL Server and MongoDB), while providing developers and data scientists with a virtual unified data access layer. C3 V7.8 continues investments in Kubernetes/Docker-based deployments across cloud providers and enables more than 40 new multi-cloud services as pre-built types in the C3 Platform (Azure Event Hub, Azure IoT Hub, Azure Active Directory, Azure SQL Server, Azure Blob, Store, Amazon ECS and Amazon SQS).

"With Version 7.8 of the C3 Platform, C3 continues to lead in delivering a cohesive AI development platform resulting in 10-100x faster development of AI-based applications compared to building it yourself with cloud microservices. Digital transformation has become a strategic necessity for today's enterprises," said Ed Abbo, C3's president and CTO, in a prepared statement. "C3 V7.8 supports the requirements of global enterprises that are ramping up significant development teams on the C3 Platform to redefine their business processes with predictive and prescriptive analytics."

"With C3 V7.8," added Dan Jeavons, the general manager of data science at Royal Dutch Shell, in the prepared statement, "we were able to develop, deploy, and manage nearly 1 million models in our development environment and over 200 terabytes of data. We are now in the process of moving this to production to tackle some of our most challenging AI cases."
