Amazon SageMaker vs Azure Machine Learning: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon SageMaker as "Accelerated Machine Learning". A fully-managed service that enables developers and data scientists to quickly and easily build, train, and deploy machine learning models at any scale. On the other hand, Azure Machine Learning is detailed as "A fully-managed cloud service for predictive analytics". Azure Machine Learning is a fully-managed cloud service that enables data scientists and developers to efficiently embed predictive analytics into their applications, helping organizations use massive data sets and bring all the benefits of the cloud to machine learning.
Amazon SageMaker and Azure Machine Learning can be primarily classified as "Machine Learning as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Amazon SageMaker are:
- Build: managed notebooks for authoring models, built-in high-performance algorithms, broad framework support
- Train: one-click training, authentic model tuning
- Deploy: one-click deployment, automatic A/B testing, fully-managed hosting with auto-scaling
On the other hand, Azure Machine Learning provides the following key features:
- Designed for new and experienced users
- Proven algorithms from MS Research, Xbox and Bing
- First class support for the open source language R
Microsoft, Bluebeam Software, and Petra are some of the popular companies that use Azure Machine Learning, whereas Amazon SageMaker is used by Zola, SoFi, and Relay42. Azure Machine Learning has a broader approval, being mentioned in 12 company stacks & 8 developers stacks; compared to Amazon SageMaker, which is listed in 12 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

Which #IaaS / #PaaS to chose? Not all #Cloud providers are created equal. As you start to use one or the other, you'll build around very specific services that don't have their equivalent elsewhere.
Back in 2014/2015, this decision I made for SmartZip was a no-brainer and #AWS won. AWS has been a leader, and over the years demonstrated their capacity to innovate, and reducing toil. Like no other.
Year after year, this kept on being confirmed, as they rolled out new (managed) services, got into Serverless with AWS Lambda / FaaS And allowed domains such as #AI / #MachineLearning to be put into the hands of every developers thanks to Amazon Machine Learning or Amazon SageMaker for instance.
Should you compare with #GCP for instance, it's not quite there yet. Building around these managed services, #AWS allowed me to get my developers on a whole new level. Where they know what's under the hood. Where they know they have these services available and can build around them. Where they care and are responsible for operations and security and deployment of what they've worked on.
