Most financial advisors - people who specialise in identifying opportunities to increase your net wealth by investing savings into complex financial products, are extremely expensive and not easily accessible by everyone. The founders of Mylo which stand for Managing Your Left Overs; approached OSO DevOps for all-around technical guidance on how to build a minimum viable product using the latest technology as cost-effective as possible.
The brief was to gain a deep understanding of customers spending, but highly valuable data sources, such as transactional card data, were not accessible through existing transitional APIs. This meant that Mylo could not easily consume the data it needed to learn customer spending habits and provide saving recommendations.
We knew we wanted to create a reusable, scalable machine learning model on AWS. So we reached out to our partner manager at Amazon to see if they’d be interested in working with us. They agreed enthusiastically and helped fund part of the project in the form of platform credits.
