Unlock the Power of AI in Your Business: Navigating the Complexities of Implementing AI
As Artificial intelligence (AI) becomes increasingly more ubiquitous and a core component of modern business strategy, more and more companies are investing in AI to gain a competitive edge and maintain competitiveness. Implementing AI is not as simple as adding an extra “plug and play” component to one’s existing analytics infrastructure. Implementing AI in business can be complex and requires careful planning and execution if the goal is to generate and realize business value. This is where Aimpoint Digital comes in as a leader in AI implementation; we help companies navigate the process and achieve successful results.
In this blog, we will discuss the importance of AI in today’s business landscape and outline the fixed steps we take to develop a comprehensive strategy for implementing and integrating AI within a business.
Creating a Winning Game Plan for AI Implementation
Before diving into the specifics of implementing AI, it is essential to understand the importance of developing a comprehensive strategy. A well-thought-out strategy will ensure that the implementation of AI aligns with the overall goals and objectives of the organization and takes into consideration the current data & analytics capabilities and operating model. It will also provide a clear roadmap for integrating AI into the business and measuring its success effectively. By developing a strategy, businesses can avoid common pitfalls and set themselves up for long-term success with AI.
- Identify Business Objectives: The first step in developing an AI strategy is to identify the specific business objectives that the technology can help to achieve. This will ensure that the implementation of AI focuses on delivering measurable value to the organization. For many organizations early in their AI maturity, the business may need help understanding the full potential or business value. At Aimpoint Digital, we first work with our client’s business stakeholders to demonstrate the art of the possible and identify the right AI solutions to meet their goals.
- Assess Current Capabilities: Before implementing AI, it is essential to understand the current capabilities of the organization in terms of data, infrastructure, and personnel. This helps identify any gaps that need to be addressed in order to implement AI successfully. When developing our AI strategy, we engage subject matter experts and insights from our Data Science, Data Engineering, and Data Analytics practices to ensure the strategy is implementable, and gaps are addressed via customized recommendations.
- Develop a Plan: Once the objectives and capabilities have been identified, create a plan outlining the steps needed to implement AI. The plan should include details on data collection, infrastructure requirements, and personnel training. The desired pace of change, AI ambition, risk appetite, and culture are different for every client, and we ensure that is accounted for in the implementation plan. Aimpoint Digital can work with you to develop a plan that is tailored to your business, its unique needs, and priorities.
- Execute the Plan: Once you develop the plan, execute it promptly and efficiently. This may involve working with external partners or vendors to help with data collection, infrastructure, and training. For our clients, Aimpoint Digital provides a perspective on the change impact to key stakeholders and stakeholder groups, which drives a change enablement strategy and develops a strategic roadmap.
- Monitor and Evaluate: The final step in implementing AI is to monitor and evaluate not only any new technology implemented in support of the AI capability but the performance of the AI operating model and the AI models in production. Aimpoint Digital has helped clients determine what to monitor to identify any issues that need to be addressed. Our approach has allowed our clients the ability to identify as much as a 30x ROI on their executed AI strategies and demonstrate key adjustments that could further maximize realized business value.
