Spell Named a Gartner® Cool Vendor™

See why we’re an October 2021 Cool Vendor in Enterprise AI Operationalization and Engineering

Spell is proud to announce that we have been recognized as a Cool Vendor in the October 2021 Gartner® Cool Vendors™ in Enterprise AI Operationalization and Engineering. The report is “designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services,” as well as provide recommendations for enterprises to take their strategies forward.

We believe the recognition is a powerful step forward for our work in building infrastructure for deep learning orchestration and automation. 


According to Gartner, “Data and analytics leaders must evaluate emerging vendors to build enterprise-grade AI orchestration and automation platforms or solutions to scale enterprise AI initiatives.”

Topics covered include: “The urgency and the need for enterprises to deploy platforms that accelerate scaling enterprise AI into production” and these strategic planning assumptions affirming that urgency:

  • “By 2025, 50% of large enterprises will have deployed artificial intelligence orchestration platforms to operationalize AI, up from fewer than 10% in 2020”
  • “By 2025, AI will be the top category driving infrastructure decisions, due to the maturation of the AI market, resulting in a tenfold growth in compute requirements.”
  • “By 2025, 50% of enterprises implementing AI orchestration platforms will use open-source technologies alongside proprietary vendor offerings to deliver state-of-the-art AI capabilities.”

We are delighted to share this insightful report recognizing Spell and two Spell partners — Arize and Weights & Biases — as three of the four Representative Vendors addressing the urgent need for AI scalability platforms.
