Weaviate was probably the first to understand that fact, by delivering no-code vectorizer modules inside the database. Vespa too, but with more manual steps (download the model, convert to ONNX).

Suddenly, anyone a bit technical (but not a data scientist) could index its raw data without worrying too much about the cogs behind the scene.

Vector database + integrated vectorizer => mainstream toolbox to go to prod
