Frequently Asked Questions
Alexis Networks "Alexis" offers you a pay-as-you-go approach for pricing. With Alexis you pay only for the individual services you need, for as long as you use them, and without requiring long-term contracts or complex licensing. Alexis pricing is similar to that of AWS as how you pay for utilities like water and electricity. You only pay for the services you consume, and once you stop using them, there are no additional costs or termination fees.
How do you pay for Alexis Networks?
Pay-as-you-go allows you to easily adapt to changing business needs without overcommitting budgets and improving your responsiveness to changes. With a pay-as-you-go model, you can adapt your business depending on need and not on forecasts, reducing the risk of over positioning or missing capacity.
Do I save when you reserve?
For certain services like CMS Claims, you can invest in reserved capacity. With Reserved Instances, you can save up to 75% over equivalent on-demand capacity. When you buy Reserved Services, the larger the upfront payment, the greater the discount.
How do pay less by using more?

Who uses Alexis Networks solutions?
Unsupervised Machine learning for every developer and data scientist
Alexis Networks is a fully managed service that provides every developer and data scientist with the ability to use the world's first Unsupervised Machine Learning system.
With other solutions a developer needs to build, train, and deploy machine learning (ML) models. Alexis Networks solutions have greatly improved the life cycle for machine learning developers. Alexis removes the heavy lifting from each step of the machine learning process to make it easier to develop high quality models, making it as easy as upload your data and Alexis solution find anomalies in 100% unsupervised manner.
Traditional ML development is a complex, expensive, iterative process made even harder because there are no integrated tools for the entire machine learning workflow. You need to stitch together tools and workflows, which is time-consuming and error-prone. Alexis solves this challenge by providing all of the components used for machine learning in a single toolset so models get to production faster with much little to no effort and at lower cost.
