Paris, July 17, 2019 – Capgemini is expanding its AI capabilities with Microsoft through a series of strategic services aimed at helping enterprises to accelerate their adoption of AI technologies. The new services include AI Engineering for production-grade Data and AI platforms, AI for Operations Intelligence and AI for Customer Experience.
Embedded in Capgemini’s Perform AI portfolio offering, Capgemini’s AI Engineering service offering enables organisations to modernise their data estate to deliver trusted, reliable, data and AI platforms to support AI at scale applications and data-centric reference architectures. By combining Azure with relevant data and analytics, AI Engineering turns data into actionable insights that clients need to move towards a unified infostructure, for delivering insights directly to applications and end users.
In the industrial context, by launching AI for Operations Intelligence using Azure IoT, Capgemini is helping manufacturers to create an integrated AI-powered data and insights foundation, imperative for moving intuition-driven operations to insight-driven, closed loop, and autonomous plant operations. A key component, the Capgemini Intelligent Operations Platform (IOP), provides the ability to scale up manufacturing and operations intelligence to enable improved visibility, predictability and adaptability.
Finally, Capgemini’s AI for Customer Experience (CX) delivers a highly personalised and immersive customer experience at scale while improving the operational efficiency of marketing, sales and service functions. Capgemini’s AI in CX services enable its clients to leverage Azure AI capabilities within Dynamics 365 for Sales, Dynamics 365 Market Insights, Dynamics 365 for Customer Service and in Azure Bot Framework to increase revenues, resolve issues faster, reduce contacts volumes and complaints, as well as improve end user customer loyalty, engagement and overall satisfaction.
