Design and Modeling: Workshop Facilitation
EK’s workshop and design facilitation offerings can be customized to fit your organization’s unique needs, ranging from a single, 1-2-day workshop to in-depth instruction with a longer-term series of engagements.
|Create a strategy and plan to maximize your investments||Develop a shared understanding of design goals and related business value|
Many organizations fail to find an effective starting point for their data strategy and implementation efforts, delaying critical efforts because they don’t know how or where to start. With our user-centered design workshops, we help you take the first step, providing a repeatable process of tangible activities that treat stakeholders and end-users as partners and co-creators. This early alignment of goals ensures stakeholder buy-in from the get go and establishes an invested group of champions to help carry the effort forward.
Knowledge Graph Design & Implementation
Knowledge graph design and implementation is one of our core service offerings, and we work with organizations around the world to design and implement user-centered ontologies and semantic applications. We work with your organization’s data, information, and IT specialists to model your organization’s domain, delivering an initial ontology and knowledge graph.
Save significant time by using natural language to ask questions.
Reduce costs from reliance on technical experts whose time and effort are often wasted retrieving scattered information.
Using your organization’s existing data, along with content from applicable outside sources, we iteratively validate and enhance this initial model to best capture the domain knowledge. The result? High quality knowledge linking, integration of structured and unstructured data, and recommendation systems that fuel information discoverability and connections. Utilizing the industry leading ontology, knowledge graph, and data management platforms in the market, we help our clients model their domain knowledge, leverage industry standard concept models, and connect disparate data sources across the enterprise.
Ontology and Knowledge Graph Governance & Scale
At EK, we realize that your business needs are constantly changing, so it’s essential that your semantic solutions evolve too. We’ll work with you to develop a governance plan, guiding the sustainment, iteration, and scalability of your ontologies and knowledge graphs.
Enable data agility to scale with evolving business needs. Keep up with the amount and complexity of data being generated through efficient data models.
Maximize administrative efficiency by surfacing and eliminating duplication across disparate data sources. Classify, organize, and connect valuable information assets to enable a unified view without copying or duplicating data.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Strategy: Design and Implementation
Many organizations are interested in implementing artificial intelligence (AI) applications, but find it challenging to convey how AI can support their overall strategic objectives or how they can begin these complex efforts. At EK, we work with a vast array of organizations to help define a clear and concise vision for leveraging AI that contextualizes and aligns AI capabilities to strategic business objectives.
We’ll work with you to explore advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities, including natural language search, machine learning (ML), advanced analytics, image recognition, and more, ultimately choosing the capabilities that best fit your needs. We start by working with your organization’s business leaders, end users, and technical experts to align their priorities and needs and analyze your current data, content, technology, and infrastructure readiness. Working with you, we’ll design a tailored AI strategy and roadmap that defines an iterative plan, considering all dimensions of implementation (i.e. dependencies and interactions) and future scalability of AI capabilities. In addition, we’ll help you to develop agile metrics and ROI to track progress and show business value throughout implementation, enhancement, scaling, and automation.
