Demand is increasing rapidly in recent years than supply to machine learning professionals. To alleviate this gap, user-friendly machine learning software that can be used by non-specialists has emerged, which is Machine Learning-as-a-Service(MLaaS). MLaaS provides services that enable businesses to easily leverage ML capabilities without expertise. In this paper, we will compare and analyze features, interfaces, supporting programming language, ML framework, and Machine Learning services of MLaaS, to help companies easily use ML service.
