    With Amazon SageMaker, you can build, train, and deploy machine learning (ML) models for any use case with fully managed infrastructure, tools, and workflows. You can also:

    1. Enable more people to innovate with ML through a choice of tools—IDEs for data scientists and no-code interface for business analysts.
    2. Access, label, and process large amounts of structured data (tabular data) and unstructured data (photo, video, geospatial, and audio) for ML.
    3. Reduce training time from hours to minutes with optimized infrastructure. Boost team productivity up to 10 times with purpose-built tools.
    4. Automate and standardize MLOps practices and governance across your organization to support transparency and auditability.
