Preparing Your Business to Compete in an Uncertain Future

The next generation of enterprise performance will take today’s priority of digital transformation across the organization a step further – becoming an Intelligent Enterprise. The Intelligent Enterprise will be able to anticipate and meet both real time and predicted customer demands. Machine learning and data-driven insights regarding customers, products, services and solutions will fundamentally alter how business is done. Robotic Process Automation will eliminate repetitive non-value-added activities.

Changes to organizational structures, leadership approaches, employee roles and work processes must evolve and go beyond the digital transformation of business operations. The nexus of people, process and technology must adapt in lockstep to be successful. Cimphoni can help your organization define its long-term and short-term strategies to unleash the potential of the Intelligent Enterprise and optimize your business operations.

Intelligent Enterprise services include:

Advanced Analytics

It is estimated that 90% of the world’s data was created in the last two years and that 80% of that data is unstructured and external to your organization. Unfortunately, traditional BI Tools are inadequate for the job. Next generation processing power and inexpensive cloud storage have given rise to sophisticated analytics tools which excel at finding nearly real-time answers hidden within massive amounts of data and provide the foundation for future AI initiatives.

Cimphoni has an array of technology experts to help you evolve your analytics capabilities. From aligning with operational users to understand threats and opportunities, to expanding the scope of useful data sources, to designing predictive and cognitive models, Cimphoni has the experience to elevate this critical foundational capability within your organization.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is likely to be the most disruptive force in the next decade and companies that take a wait and see approach risk being left behind.

Hype abounds, but in the end it is about achieving business goals. Enough of the core technologies have now been proven out (think Alexa/Siri, autonomous vehicles, visual/voice recognition, etc.) that it is only a matter of time before enterprise adoption/disruption takes off. Rapidly evolving AI capabilities (speech recognition, computer vision, recommendation engines, deep learning, machine learning, natural language processing, etc.) are being used to reinvent business strategies and deliver new competitive differentiations.

Whether you are just trying to figure out where to start or have completed several pilots and need to implement AI solutions at scale, Cimphoni can guide you through the process.

Robotic Process Automation

The last century was driven by the automation of manual labor but the next wave will be driven by the automation of knowledge work. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) uses software bots that operate on the user interface layer to automate non-value-added activities so people can focus on more value-added efforts.

Starting with the automation of individual tasks and activities, these new capabilities are opening up the potential to automate entire business processes. Whether your goal is to drive efficiencies, get more mileage out of your legacy systems, or quickly roll out new capabilities, Cimphoni can assist by providing education on the evolving automation market, implementing these new capabilities and building a sustainable process automation model.

SubZero BI case study

Sub-Zero Wolf’s Business Intelligence Transformation

Realizing the full potential of Business Intelligence (BI) across the enterprise is a clear priority for many businesses, including Sub-Zero Wolf, a large luxury home appliance manufacturer. Cimphoni led the development of a business intelligence strategic roadmap and provided an Interim BI Manager to create and implement a unifying BI framework for the company. Over six months, we successfully aligned business intelligence initiatives with overall business objectives, built an Operational Data Store, decreased BI initiative cycle time by 50% and mentored and transitioned an internal architect to the new BI Manager role.

AI Executive Education

AI Executive Education / Use Case Workshops

Cimphoni has worked with executive leadership teams at numerous companies to introduce them to Artificial Intelligence (AI), automation and other emerging technologies. As part of this process, we initiate discussions on how these disruptive technologies can be leveraged to create new revenue opportunities and gain a competitive edge. Follow-on projects focus on starting small, iterating quickly, and building value.

Business Intelligence Conversion

Business Intelligence Conversion

A large Midwest tool manufacturer undergoing a full ERP replacement realized the business intelligence portion of the project was significantly behind schedule. Under aggressive time pressures Cimphoni quickly brought in a team to build out a new data warehouse and recreate all critical reporting in support of the new ERP system. Post go-live, the Cimphoni team leader served as the interim BI manager for six months before transitioning to a permanent manager.
