AI is already in the mainstream having entered smartphones, homes solutions apart from largescale transformations in the society like self-driving transports and more. Implementing AI in business is already in place as they reduce workload, streamline tasks, help make better decisions and improve productivity. From healthcare to banks, job industry to insurance sectors, all have seen implementation of AI.
Here is top 5 pointers to implement AI successfully to any business or operation:
Your business needs to leverage AI transformation but, by focusing on real intelligence. Take a close look at your operations, break them down into independent and interrelated segments. Identify areas, functions and processes that require repetitive tasks and will do well with intuitive automation. This is the roadmap to implement AI in your business successfully.
Demonstrate to yourself the daily value that AI can pump into your operations and how it smoothens and optimizes workflow. Remember, that AI is here to make things easier for you and not complicate them. Mark out the areas that suck maximum time and effort and at the same time are crucial to business output.
You will definitely need the help of experts to analyze build a precise AI implementation strategy. AI switchover should have concrete project goal/s. Build your own team of experts or get professionals from companies specializing in AI consultation. They are the right people to give you longterm and short-term objectives of your business AI transformation.
Unless you have an in-house team of experts, it is difficult to close the gap between the technology and its appropriate use. A thorough understanding of the precise type of data and corresponding model creation are crucial to making the best use of AI for any business. Devote time in strategic planning of AI use to get the best return on investment through optimized operations or sales. In fact, the success of the pilot project should be the guideline for further implementation of the technology.
The secret to leverage AI for businesses the right way is to start small and use it incrementally with time. The best way to overcome all AI implementation challenges is feed selective data into the upgraded system. Pick the area that throws up maximum data and needs most repetition. It will prove the value of AI in your business process where you can collect feedback and move to the next phase of expansion accordingly.
There are two parts to introducing AI to your business operations. One is hardware and the corresponding systems, the other is humans that are responsible for running these systems. You cannot leave out your human resources when it comes to planning and forming strategies as you are likely to face the maximum challenge from this part. Discuss with your team, prepare them for a large operational change and the advantages of it. Put to rest efficiency and job insecurities explaining how it will increase overall efficiency and output.
AI is all about data, data warehouse, resulting solutions and their storage. Building the most accurate model for your business will need colossal amount of data use and sorting them for further use. Only the best algorithms can bring about result-oriented AI transformation in your business. Optimizing storage for data ingest, workflow and modeling is the way to ensure maximizing AI integration.
There is investment involved in implementing AI in business effectively to any business. Weigh out all possible options with the experts and see which will have the maximum positive impact. Keep in mind future scalability and addition of extensions to the AI arm. The overall AI system has to be built with balance taking into consideration limitations and challenges that both hardware and software pose. Data security too forms a big part of the system and safeguarding all storage is definitely an important part of any AI makeover. The kind of data will determine the type of security to be used.
Bringing in AI into your operations does not mean replacing existing team but training them or re-skilling them to handle new ways of operating. Large corporates and enterprises have reported enhanced worker skills and capacities with the use of AI. Training on the domain may be an expensive affair for start ups and small businesses. But surely there are smart workshops and online training sessions that can help upgrade the skills of your staff well within your budget. Remember that only an empowered workforce can help leverage the technology and balance the cost of implementing AI.
I have had the pleasure of working with Visvero (Sandi) for almost two years now. She has been an extremely resourceful contact and is always quick to help. She and her team at Visvero were able to find candidates for even the most stringent requirements and job descriptions. She is a pleasure to work with and will make sure any candidate she sends over is a qualified candidate. I would recommend any recruiters working on C2C contract positions to reach out to her.

Visvero helped us develop a industry transforming solution to have a direct profit impact on mid-size landscaping industry. We have been able to help our clients manage the business lifecycle with their clients from the lead generation to contracts execution phase. The application helps our clients identify and independently track and manage each cost component on any project or maintenance contract. Tracking/ managing these allows our clients to better control quality and profitability of each contract.

As an advisor to various state and national agencies NIC takes on several blue sky technology projects for which we rely on trusted partners for advice and investment of time and treasure. Visvero team invested thousands of person hours helping our team socialize the key analytics technologies and develop and enhance the products for various client projects. The team was always able to take project briefs and create high utility analytics applications. Definitely recommend them for public sector applications projects.

In LA, we are in a competitive market for talent. So, when we had a recent need for specialized Tableau developers, we turned to our trusted friends at Visvero. We were rapidly able to add 3 talented developers on project. Visvero was very flexible in accommodating our request to convert developers as Fandango FTE. I highly recommend Visvero recruiters for being able to find critical Business Intelligence consultants quickly and being flexible with contracts to make the gains permanent.

“We organized an analytics “bake-off” between IBM using Endeca and Visvero using Qlik. In two weeks the Visvero team was able to deliver a consumer ready Risk and HR analytics application, four weeks later we were just getting started with IBM. And what’s more, my team and I spent over 80 hours getting IBM to start to understand what it is that we needed. Visvero team had a subject matter expert who took all of 6 hours with my team. Engaging Visvero was a “no-brainer” decision.”
Pharmaceuticals, Sales and Research applications, Qlik, SAP
At Allergan, our business team had a very divergent view of output from our analytics roll-out. Visvero was able bridge the gap and deploy a crack team of Qlik and SAP developers who enabled us to deliver the applications in weekly sprints. Our team scaled 1 power user to a team of 8 developers in 10 days. QuikWIN methodology was transformational in how we delivered applications to our customers – the sales organization.

This project is a key win for us. Visvero consultants were properly vetted and compliant with our rigorous processes. Consultants appeared to be satisfied with offline mentoring and periodic training on new tools. As a contracted asset the engaged consultants do not have adequate access to same trainings that are available to our FTEs, Visvero closed this gap by creating their internal trainings to support our consultants. It was great for everybody involved. And the teams were super productive!
