The digital revolution based on artificial intelligence is creating big
changes and transformations in businesses, markets and society.
In this changing, rush, and hyperconnected process companies must
compete – and the only option is to consider digital transformation to be ready
for the future.
With artificial intelligence (AI) companies can
gain unprecedented knowledge about control, automation and optimization of their
operational processes. Many problems that were previously considered unsolvable
can be overcome with the help of AI.
For a successful transformation to an AI-driven infrastructure it is essential to get a full overview about the business context and the created data. This can be achieved with an interdisciplinary team of experts who can fully understand business and their environments.
This can be achieved with a 360°-evaluation workshops based on Design
Thinking to have a clear focus on the customer wants. Therefore, it is
necessary to involve people from top-management to business and
technical-experts. End of this evaluation a set of use-cases is created for the
Data understanding and data
Based on the use-cases the
required data is identified, analysed and beautified. Additionally, it is
checked if new data (e. g. weather, locations etc.) would be useful.
End of this phase the set of
input data is ready.
Modelling and Evaluation
For the complex data models an optimal
algorithm has to be found to predict future outcome. To do so different methods
will be challenged to get the perfect solution mathematical and business
At the end the chosen solution
must be fully integrated into the customer system landscape. This means that
the maintenance of the solution is focused only on regular re-evaluations based
on new data.
THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION WE EXPERIENCE IS
REAL AND WE MUST BECOME STRONG AND COMPETITIVE IN THE MARKET TO TRANSFORM
BUSINESS; THINKING OF A NEW WORLD, DISRUPTIVE, TECHNOLOGICAL, GLOBALISED AND
FAST IN THE FACE OF IMMINENT CHANGE.
