First-Class Experiments

Foster a culture of experimentation and rapid innovation by deploying and testing variants easily - while keeping production safely isolated.

Foster a culture of experimentation

While there many ways to ship the first version of any system, are you able to improve it and test new ideas quickly and confidently? This is a true litmus test of a mature data and AI/ML platform.

Winning systems are not perfect initially but they are amenable to continuous improvement.

Explore with confidence

Metaflow provides tools for safe experimentation: Use @project to bundle flows, namespaces to isolate deployments, and tagging to organize work

Deploy A/B experiments and shadow variants without interfering with production. Integrate variants to CI/CD systems to deploy pull requests automatically for testing.

Innovate, experiment, and deploy faster than ever before

A big advantage of Metaflow and the Outerbounds Platform is that we started rolling out much more complex models. We used to have simple manually-built heuristics. In six weeks, a team that hadn’t used Metaflow before was able to build an ML-based model, A/B test its performance, which handily beat the old simple approach, and roll it out to production.
