Playbook: Engineering foundations for scaling analytics and AI with enterprise IT

The making of well-designed AI / ML solutions requires significant data engineering and data wrangling exercises. Data engineering and scalable modern solution architectures are key requirements for an AI/ML solution for production use. We use a business-focused approach to IT in engineering the solution, aligning analytics, AI/ML approaches, and technology. Unleashing agile analytics within an enterprise where data is imprisoned in legacy platforms and infrastructure requires not just an IT transformation – but a data-first approach driven by an analytics partner. Finally, to understand how the data-to-decision making comes together requires excellent team dynamics and analyzing, designing, and building the AI/ML application.

Supporting business decisions through engineering solutions

Cloud engineering solutions

With most analytics initiatives starting as cloud-native solutions and also need to leverage advanced PaaS services, BI solutions available on the Cloud, Cloud engineering needs to build and maintain data lakes, operate data pipelines, and enable value realization of Cloud investments.  This Cloud-driven analytics has become indispensable for any enterprise wishing to have agile analytics and be driven by data and insight-rich decision making.

  • Leverage the power of cloud data warehouses and Data Lakes,
  • Build analytics solutions with cloud-first architectures,
  • Modernize applications and data platforms,
  • Transform analytics to Cloud-based environments,
  • Leverage data engineering with public Cloud capabilities (DevOps, CI/CD).

Start your end-to-end cloud journey right from on-premise systems to the Cloud, from Cloud consulting, architecting, designing, migration to implementation, and ITIL-based operations, leading to an analytics-driven enterprise-ready for growth.
