It’s a two-week exploratory engagement, where we’ll go through all of your business processes, how you collect data, how primed you are for adoption, and more. We’ll work actively with business and technical stakeholders, educate if necessary, help create buy-in, pick the right use case to start with, and also lay out a plan for more general adoption.
Why did we start this? Many of our clients - in fact, many companies in general - were approaching data AI adoption the wrong way, thinking about which Machine Learning techniques to use first, rather than about what tangible business outcomes they wanted from the exercise. In our experience, leading with tech has led to accidental success at best, and a disillusionment with all things AI at worst.
We found that a simple week’s worth of exploration - processes, data, digitization, landscape, the whole nine yards - before jumping into implementation made for telling insights. We also found that starting with one simple use case rather than trying to transform the entire business made the process palatable, scalable and also inspired a lot of confidence, because who doesn’t like to win? And that’s why we started the Discovery Workshop.
Our team is a combination of data scientists, nerds (Ph.Ds in Math and so forth) and business leaders. This means that you get top-notch tech expertise, along with business-level suggestions driven by cold, hard facts, to help your company take on the age of AI. We get the tech, and we also have a deep understanding of business-specific use cases. You don’t come across that very often!
We’ll look at competitors, what they’re doing with regards to data science, the size of your market, and also try and spot under-appreciated high-value opportunities for your business that can be unlocked using ML & AI.
Our clients tell us that of all the great things we do, this is what they love us the most for. Based on our market research and discussions with relevant stakeholders, we’ll pick out the best use cases for your company. No two plans we draw up look the same.
This one is self explanatory. We’ll go through all of the use cases we’ve picked, along with you, and quickly give you high-level estimates for all of them. This helps set expectations early on, and tells you how much each project will cost.
Time to pick our winner. Get excited! Based on our estimates, we will work together to pick one use case that has the greatest potential for immediate results, at the lowest cost.
Once we have our lead use case, we’ll help educate all of your other stakeholders and mid-level management. We’ll also lay out a roadmap for AI implementation. Whether or not you use us for said implementation is up to you!
We have the rare combination of use case modeling, tech excellence and the ability to communicate effectively with employees at various levels. Everyone on our management team has built and scaled companies, so we understand business better than most other product engineering firms would. When we solve client problems, we don’t just throw a bunch of sexy algorithms at them, we actually invest in the important things, like understanding the domain and figuring out the nuances of the business model.
