Salesforce has announced the launch of Einstein Studio, a platform designed to aid in the integration and deployment of custom AI models within businesses’ Salesforce environments. With Einstein Studio, companies can now harness the power of their proprietary AI models across a wide range of Salesforce applications, including sales, service, marketing, commerce and IT.

Einstein Studio is a “bring your own model” (BYOM) approach, offering a streamlined solution for organizations to leverage their unique AI models. This capability opens up new avenues for businesses to maximize the value of their AI and data investments, aimed at driving better outcomes and enhanced customer experiences.

By using Einstein Studio, companies can seamlessly integrate their custom AI models alongside curated AI models, like those from Amazon SageMaker and Google Cloud’s Vertex AI, provided through Einstein GPT.

Companies can now easily train their AI models on proprietary customer data through the platform’s integration with Salesforce Data Cloud, tailoring solutions to specific business needs. This integration also allows for the harmonization of data from various sources into a single customer profile, adaptable in real-time for use across different departments.

With its pre-built, zero-ETL integration, Einstein Studio minimizes the complexity of moving data between platforms. This translates into a straightforward “point and click” process for accessing Data Cloud data, building and training custom AI models and generating predictions and content from current and relevant customer data.

Einstein Studio additionally provides a comprehensive control panel that empowers data scientists and engineers to manage how their data is exposed to AI platforms during training. This governance feature ensures that data utilization adheres to the organization’s standards and policies.

The zero-ETL framework employed by Einstein Studio eliminates the need for time-consuming data integration across systems. This approach enables companies to power their custom AI models without undergoing the extract, transform and load (ETL) process, ultimately saving valuable time and resources while accelerating AI implementation.

Across industries, businesses can harness its capabilities to enhance revenue, deliver exceptional customer experiences, increase data team productivity and maximize existing AI investments. For instance, financial service institutions can develop custom cross-selling models based on real-time client engagement data. Retailers can utilize AI to offer personalized product recommendations, pricing and customer segmentation. Automotive brands can predict maintenance needs, identify fraudulent claims and tailor marketing campaigns to individual preferences.

Rahul Auradkar, EVP and GM of Unified Data Services and Einstein, Salesforce, said: “Companies need quick, ROI-driven AI investments that deliver value through actionable business insights and personalized customer experiences. Einstein Studio offers a faster, easier way to create and implement custom AI models, including a BYOM approach that allows customers to use the most relevant AI models – all while bypassing expensive ETL data pipeline processes.

“Now, Salesforce customers can harness their own proprietary data to power predictive and generative AI across every part of their organization.”
