KNAB

Creating a platform for easy model deployment

Summary

KNAB needs to be able to develop and deploy models easily. Xebia Group set-up the data infrastructure on AWS and developed models that are both used internally to optimize processes as well as externally to provide customers with the best experience.

During our collaboration, I’ve come to know the Binx and Xebia consultants as knowledgeable people, with a broad variety of skill sets. Binx is a flexible company and brings people with a hands-on mentality.

The challenge

KNAB is an online bank that needs to provide the right insurance product to the right customer. KNAB wants to maintain their own infrastructure and develop the capabilities to take data applications into production, without the need to call in support from third parties.

The Solution

A team of Xebia consultants developed a model that recognizes individual website behavior and profiles website visitors based on this by clustering them. The model lives in a container on ECS. When the model is published, it is built inside this container and then released.

The results

The added value of ECS here is that it is a very scalable solution, so when there is a performance peak, the end-user is not impacted by this. KNAB is able to deploy models and bring them into production easily, without the need for a data engineer to productionize the model every time.

About the customer

Knab is just a little different from other banks. Knab wants to make people financially smarter. They put the customer first in everything we do.
