Smart Products through Artificial Intelligence

Always one step ahead

We Bring Intelligence into Your IT

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a great opportunity and enables IT to move to the next level of intelligent development. However, many companies are still reluctant to implement concrete AI projects and are unsure: Is it more important, for example, to automate processes or to make better predictions?

The Time Has Come for AI, Don't Hesitate!

Our experts are at your side as competent partners. We support you right from the start and identify your individual AI potential with you. From the AI strategy and roadmap to the implementation of smart AI and machine learning applications as well as real-time decision systems.

The Arvato Systems AI-Journey - from the First Idea to the Finished AI-Service

  • We find the Use Cases with the greatest added value

    • Assessment

    In an assessment workshop we clarify important basics, carry out an assessment and benchmark the current Big Data, AI and Analytics capabilities in the company. 

    • Use Case Overview

    In a roadmap workshop we develop an overview of use cases using design thinking methods. We translate business processes into data-driven questions, generate a comprehensive use case list and prioritize it according to benefit and effort.

    • Readiness Check

    The best use cases are further analyzed in a readiness check. Organizational structure, processes, roles, data governance and IT system landscape - we clarify which prerequisites need to be created for the realization of the use cases.

    The result: Your Use Case Portfolio

  • The fast way: from concept to prototype with real data

    • Concept

    In the use case concept we check the existing data and turn the technical use case idea into an analytical concept, which is put to the test in the next step.

    • Exploration

    In the Use Case Exploration we check and test the hypotheses of the Use Case with real data. In our standardized development environment, we reduce disruptive factors and effort drivers. Within a few days we know whether a use case can be implemented.

    • Prototype

    Now it is being implemented: In iterative steps and taking user feedback into account, a first verified prototype with added value for the user is created.

    The result: Your prototype with real data

  • From the Use Case to the finished AI Service in the productive environment

    • Scaling plan

    In the scaling plan we determine how the "tender plant" (prototype) successively becomes a stately tree. This involves the analysis of the productive environment, influencing factors and interfaces.

    • Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

    Within the integration, the so-called Minimum Viable Product (MVP) will be developed as a beta version of the AI Service. More users, more data and further functionalities serve to develop a robust AI service.

    • Product

    The continuous and extensive testing in the development pipeline turns the beta version into a product-ready AI service. DevOps merges further development and operation of the AI Service.

    The result: Your productive AI service

  • Stable operation and continuous improvement of your AI services

    • 24/7 monitoring

    We keep an eye on the operation of your AI services: This is what our many years of experience in Ifratructure and Data Center Services stand for. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

    • Operations

    Efficient operation and lean integration and deployment of business growing cloud architectures

    The Result: Your Reliable and Comprehensive Managed AI Service
