SONAR© Onboarding + Education Services

We’ll craft a personalized 30-day onboarding plan to ensure we’re aligning the best practices and best support to the problems you are looking to solve. Our seasoned team of data science engineers have worked tirelessly to develop our proprietary onboarding framework to simplify the adoption of machine learning. And it works!


Over 90% of Customers Build and Deploy a Model within 30 days

The startup support provided by the BigSquid product team was a great asset as we got our first Kraken project started. Kraken provides an intuitive user interface and the learning curve is as flat as any product I have used. In a matter of a few weeks, we were able to deliver prediction results and provide meaningful data to front line staff.

define a question for machine learning

Translating business problems into questions that can be solved with machine learning is an art. We’ll teach you the four key ingredients to asking questions that machine learning can solve.

machine learning framework

With the four key ingredients to machine learning at the ready, we’ll show you how to apply these ingredients to a repeatable framework to help you develop a machine learning dataset quickly.

Mastering Kraken by Big squid

You’ll master key concepts within Kraken including organization best practices, data connectivity, exploring your data with Kraken, building ML models, interpreting results, managing model iterations with version control, and model deployment strategies. 

dataset development

Developing datasets for machine learning involves the same skills you apply to traditional data analytics solutions. You’ll learn how to apply those skills to developing ML ready datasets including applications in feature engineering, EDA and feature discovery, and data leakage.

model scoring and iteration

Kraken makes it easy to build machine learning models, but rarely does your first version score well. You’ll learn about different algorithms, model metrics and model scores — and how to effectively iterate on your models to reach a deployable state for your model.

Using prediction influencers

The Prediction Influencers Kraken associates with each feature in your dataset takes interpretability and actionability to a whole new level. Learn how to visualize and apply Prediction Influencers to derive highly actionable insights for your business.
