Consultancy firm Capgemini has launched Perform AI, an enterprise portfolio of artificial-intelligence solutions and services for strategy and design through to global implementation and management.
The portfolio brings together people, process, data and technology, according to a statement by Capgemini.
A recent publication from the Capgemini Research Institute highlighted that a mix of anxiety and ill-informed opinion is obscuring the risks and opportunities of implementing AI.
Perform AI has been designed to address the opportunities and the critical challenges which companies confront today, the statement said.
“Most companies have already started to experiment with AI to help them transform certain functions within their business, but those that adopt it effectively and throughout the enterprise will gain true competitive advantage,” said Lanny Cohen, group chief innovation officer at Capgemini.
He added, “To realise true real-world impact and ensure sustained success, companies need to move beyond isolated initiatives to infusing AI into everything they do – from simply changing technologies to shifting the entire game. With Perform AI, we are laser-focused on applying AI to achieve mission-critical, high-business impact, resulting in tangible performance outcomes for today and in the future.”
Capgemini’s Perform AI portfolio comprises four core components called AI Activate, AI Transform, AI Reimagine and AI Engineering.
Capgemini has created a network of cross-practice AI Centers of Excellence (CoEs) for solution creation as well as expert capability development. These Perform AI CoEs are now operational in France, Germany and North America, all supported by a hub CoE in India.
Anne-Laure Thieullent, AI and analytics group offer leader, Capgemini, said, “We have launched Perform AI to enable organisations to augment operations and potentially re-invent their business at a time when they are expected to regularly meet and exceed customers’ expectations that are higher and more diverse than ever before.”
She added, “Through the application of AI technologies, our Perform AI solutions will increase the speed of execution and certainty of success for our clients’ AI initiatives, which are sometimes still fragmented and not exploited to their full potential.”
