Capgemini today announced the launch of “Perform AI” to help organisations achieve and sustain business outcomes by building and operating AI at scale.

The new portfolio has been designed to address opportunities and challenges that companies face in data management and AI these days. Issues like applying AI at scale, empowering people, transforming operations and embedding ethics.

“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, Capgemini. “To realize 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.”

The platform comprises of four core components—AI Activate, AI Transform, AI Reimagine and AI Engineering—in order to provide flexibility needed for rollout of AI at scale.

Capgemini said it has created a network of cross-practice AI Centers of Excellence (CoE) functioning in France, Germany and North America. All are supported by a hub in India. “Geographical coverage of the Perform AI CoEs will be extended throughout 2019,” the tech giant said.

“We have launched Perform AI to enable organizations to augment operations and potentially reinvent 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,” said Anne-Laure Thieullent, AI and Analytics Group Offer Leader, Capgemini.

“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,” Thieullent added.
