Ability to move fully trained STT models between separate instances (i.e. DEV vs. PROD or separate accounts)

  • Customers for best practice reasons keep environments separate (DEV vs. PROD) for security, performance, testing & availability of the model. 
  • Training STT models can take hours to train.
  • Not utilizing fully trained models results in delays in providing updated STT models in PROD
  • Duplication of effort in DEV & PROD, increases operational impact & costs.

    Having something that could be incorporated into a DevOps pipeline will move STT from a "curiosity" to something that we can claim we have a real SW engineering discipline around.  

    If this capability becomes available, then service availability in ANY environment could be guaranteed using a simple blue/green DevOps deployment technique.
