A year ago we published an article introducing DELTA AI, Projecting’s sister company focused on AI. Since then, the DELTA team have been busy talking to potential clients about AI. In Projecting Group we like to use initial client meetings to understand their needs (as we discussed in a recent DELTA AI article). However, clients often want us to lead with relevant use cases, as a good way to spark the conversation. There are many interesting use cases in the market, but most consultancies don’t go beyond the well-known offerings of the big well-funded players. One of DELTA AI’s strengths is that we have taken the time to investigate and understand the offerings of lesser known / earlier stage companies. This is where much of the innovation is taking place, as 89% of the AI ecosystem in the U.K. consists of startups with 50 or fewer employees (according to this Forbes article).
We see 3 main ways AI can help companies:
(See also this video from an event earlier in the year. It is in Spanish, but if you turn on the automatic English subtitles you will see a good example of the power of AI).
Over the last year, we’ve met many Projecting current or potential clients keen to talk about AI. This is already resulting in projects with an AI component.
A good example of this is the work we are doing with a company in the Wealth industry. The client asked Projecting to help them transform their Operating Model. In the first phase, working with a DELTA AI expert, we identified 3 main ways to apply AI to obtain quick wins. For the first opportunity, we are currently reviewing off-the-shelf tools. For the other two opportunities, we are developing business cases for building customised bots.
The DELTA AI team continue to focus on expanding knowledge and expertise in AI. We hold regular sessions across the teams to ensure the Projecting team are aware of the latest use cases identified. So, if you are interested in AI, feel free to contact anyone in the DELTA AI or Projecting teams. We’re always happy to have a chat.
