The Forrester Wave: Notebook-Based Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning Solutions, Q3 2018 is out, and H2O.ai is a Strong Performer! The report looks at machine learning platforms centered on R and Python languages using notebooks like Jupyter and Zeppelin. Vendors are evaluated along three dimensions including market presence, current offering, and overall strategy.

Here are some key takeaways –

Broad Adoption of H2O Algorithms

H2O.ai had the highest rating for market presence comparable to Google and has more market awareness than players like Oracle, OpenText, Databricks and others. For the current offering, there should be little surprise that H2O-3 and H2O Sparkling Water are the top performers in open source algorithms. Forrester even acknowledges that many other machine learning vendors integrate the H2O algorithms into their platforms.

Top Scores for Product Strategy

H2O.ai gets the highest score of any vendor in the report for overall product strategy with three perfect scores out of the five evaluation criteria including solution roadmap; pricing and ease of acquisition; and strength of partnerships. For the product roadmap, Forrester noted that “H2O.ai’s bright future is in its Driverless AI product which automates large swaths of the data science lifecycle to automatically build hundreds or even thousands of models.”

Automatic Machine Learning Wave Next Year

Forrester Research has recognized that the market for AI and ML platforms is evolving rapidly. In this report, they announced the creation of three separate Wave reports for the machine learning space including two on Notebook based solutions and the third Wave on automatic machine learning. The production of a separate report is excellent news for H2O.ai as an innovator in the automatic machine learning space with H2O Driverless AI. Keep an eye out for the new automation focused Wave next year.
