Generative Artiﬁcial Intelligence (Generative AI) is playing an increasingly important role in how forward-thinking organizations conduct their business. From improved customer interactions, to exploring and analyzing vast amounts of data (and much more), Generative AI makes it possible for organizations to move faster and act more decisively, ultimately enabling them to unlock an unprecedented amount of opportunity. This is exactly why it’s mission-critical for teams across every sector and industry to tap into the beneﬁts that Generative AI can offer.
IBM watsonx (watsonx) is an industry-deﬁning, cloud-based Generative AI platform. It’s a customizable solution for companies looking to launch or reﬁne any number of tasks and processes, from content generation to data access and software automation. watsonx is trusted by leading organizations around the world to help them extract as much value as possible out of their data.
At Proliﬁcs, we have a dedicated team of experts who are committed to delivering best-in-class Generative AI solutions to our global customers. As a Master Data Architect with decades of experience leveraging IBM technologies to amplify customer outcomes, I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge that I apply daily to my work with watsonx.
In this article, I’m reviewing three key ways that Proliﬁcs + watsonx is uniquely positioned to support your team’s AI journey, and ensure that you get the most from this incredible technology.
Elevate your approach to Generative AI with a trusted partner
1. Unparalleled experience:
Proliﬁcs is an IBM North American, European and APAC Platinum business partner, and we’ve worked to optimize IBM solutions for decades. When IBM developed watsonx, Proliﬁcs was chosen as an original beta customer, and many members of my team played a role in evaluating the platform and providing feedback to IBM’s internal team.
While the term ‘Generative AI’ has only recently become part of the public’s everyday vocabulary, specialists like me have been working to understand this game-changing technology for years, and we have comprehensive experience helping teams from a wide range of sectors to implement and leverage this groundbreaking platform.
2. Unprecedented customization:
As with any aspect of a digital transformation journey, the implementation of Generative AI within your organization must have a clear purpose: Before deploying such a robust tool, we always ask our customers: “What is your picture of success with Generative AI?”
Different businesses, markets, industries, and sectors all have unique answers to this question. And to achieve these speciﬁc results, you’ll need to target your application of Generative AI towards speciﬁc use cases, processes, and tasks. Doing that requires a customizable platform, and a well-versed partner that fully understands how to leverage Generative AI to drive certain outcomes.
3. Unmatched speed-to-value:
It’s no secret that AI is developing fast. I believe that it will be the organizations who move quickly to understand and implement this technology that stand to most meaningfully beneﬁt from everything it can offer. But success with Generative AI isn’t as easy as simply choosing a platform and waiting for the results to roll in. Your teams must have vision, purpose, and the right support in order to truly see impressive results.
In my day-to-day role, I work with customers to reﬁne their objectives and help them identify clear, achievable ways to reach their goals. Through this exercise, we’re able to quickly build the necessary foundations that enable them to deploy watsonx in the most productive ways possible. By uncovering our customers’ goals and ambitions early on, the path toward implementation becomes much clearer and faster to navigate.
