Deliver your personal AI utilizing Amazon SageMaker with Salesforce Information Cloud

This submit is co-authored by Daryl Martis, Director of Product, Salesforce Einstein AI.

We’re excited to announce Amazon SageMaker and Salesforce Information Cloud integration. With this functionality, companies can entry their Salesforce knowledge securely with a zero-copy strategy utilizing SageMaker and use SageMaker instruments to construct, prepare, and deploy AI fashions. The inference endpoints are related with Information Cloud to drive predictions in actual time. Consequently, companies can speed up time to market whereas sustaining knowledge integrity and safety, and cut back the operational burden of transferring knowledge from one location to a different.

Introducing Einstein Studio on Information Cloud

Information Cloud is an information platform that gives companies with real-time updates of their buyer knowledge from any contact level. With Einstein Studio, a gateway to AI instruments on the information platform, admins and knowledge scientists can effortlessly create fashions with a couple of clicks or utilizing code. Einstein Studio’s convey your personal mannequin (BYOM) expertise supplies the potential to attach customized or generative AI fashions from exterior platforms similar to SageMaker to Information Cloud. Customized fashions will be educated utilizing knowledge from Salesforce Information Cloud accessed by way of the Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler connector. Companies can act on their predictions by seamlessly integrating customized fashions into Salesforce workflows, resulting in improved effectivity, decision-making, and personalised experiences.

Advantages of the SageMaker and Information Cloud Einstein Studio integration

Right here’s how utilizing SageMaker with Einstein Studio in Salesforce Information Cloud can assist companies:

  • It supplies the flexibility to attach customized and generative AI fashions to Einstein Studio for numerous use instances, similar to lead conversion, case classification, and sentiment evaluation.
  • It eliminates tedious, expensive, and error-prone ETL (extract, rework, and cargo) jobs. The zero-copy strategy to knowledge reduces the overhead to handle knowledge copies, reduces storage prices, and improves efficiencies.
  • It supplies entry to extremely curated, harmonized, and real-time knowledge throughout Buyer 360. This results in professional fashions that ship extra clever predictions and enterprise insights.
  • It simplifies the consumption of outcomes from enterprise processes and drives worth with out latency. For instance, you should utilize automated workflows that may adapt straight away based mostly on new knowledge.
  • It facilitates the operationalization of SageMaker fashions and inferences in Salesforce.

The next is an instance of the way to operationalize a SageMaker mannequin utilizing Salesforce Flow.

SageMaker integration

SageMaker is a completely managed service to organize knowledge and construct, prepare, and deploy machine studying (ML) fashions for any use case with absolutely managed infrastructure, instruments, and workflows.

To streamline the SageMaker and Salesforce Information Cloud integration, we’re introducing two new capabilities in SageMaker:

  • The SageMaker Information Wrangler Salesforce Information Cloud connector – With the newly launched SageMaker Information Wrangler Salesforce Information Cloud connector, admins can preconfigure connections to Salesforce to allow knowledge analysts and knowledge scientists to shortly entry Salesforce knowledge in actual time and create options for ML. It will allow customers to entry Salesforce Information Cloud securely utilizing OAuth. You’ll be able to interactively visualize, analyze, and rework knowledge utilizing the ability of Spark with out writing any code utilizing the low-code visible knowledge preparation options of Salesforce Information Wrangler. It’s also possible to scale to course of giant datasets with SageMaker Processing jobs, prepare ML modes routinely utilizing Amazon SageMaker Autopilot, and combine with a SageMaker inference pipeline to deploy the identical knowledge circulation to manufacturing with the inference endpoint to course of knowledge in actual time or in batch for inference.

  • The SageMaker Initiatives template for Salesforce – We launched a SageMaker Projects template for Salesforce that you should utilize to deploy endpoints for conventional and huge language fashions (LLMs) and expose SageMaker endpoints as an API routinely. SageMaker Initiatives supplies an easy strategy to arrange and standardize the event atmosphere for knowledge scientists and ML engineers to construct and deploy ML fashions on SageMaker.

“The partnership between Salesforce and AWS Sagemaker will empower prospects to leverage the ability of AI (each, generative and non-generative fashions) throughout their Salesforce knowledge sources, workflows and functions to ship personalised experiences and energy new content material era, summarization, and question-answer sort experiences. By combining the very best of each worlds, we’re creating a brand new paradigm for data-driven innovation and buyer success underpinned by AI.”

Answer overview

The BYOM integration answer supplies prospects with a local Salesforce Information Cloud connector in SageMaker Information Wrangler. The SageMaker Information Wrangler connector lets you securely entry Salesforce Information Cloud objects. As soon as customers are authenticated, they’ll carry out knowledge exploration, preparation, and have engineering duties wanted for mannequin growth and inference by way of the SageMaker Information Wrangler interactive visible interface. Information scientists can work inside Amazon SageMaker Studio notebooks to develop customized fashions, which will be conventional or LLMs, and make them accessible for deployment by registering the mannequin within the SageMaker Mannequin Registry. When a mannequin is authorized for manufacturing within the registry, SageMaker Initiatives will automate the deployment of an invocation API that may be configured as a goal in Salesforce Einstein Studio and built-in with Salesforce Buyer 360 functions. The next diagram illustrates this structure


On this submit, we shared the SageMaker and Salesforce Einstein Studio BYOM integration, the place you should utilize knowledge in Salesforce Information Cloud to construct and prepare conventional and LLMs in SageMaker. You should utilize SageMaker Information Wrangler to organize knowledge from Salesforce Information Cloud with zero copy. We additionally supplied an automatic answer to deploy the SageMaker endpoints as an API utilizing a SageMaker Initiatives template for Salesforce.

AWS and Salesforce are excited to accomplice collectively to ship this expertise to our joint prospects to assist them drive enterprise processes utilizing the ability of ML and synthetic intelligence.
