Azure Open AI Roadmap

Making Open AI actionable for your company

A lot of questions are asked about GPT, OpenAI, Dall-E and how all of these innovations can be leveraged in your company. How can you as a company start with these technologies on your proprietary enterprise data and how can you turn them into services for internal and commercial use. To define your use-cases & get those questions answered, element61 has created the Azure OpenAI Roadmap; a 4-day workshop series to jointly work with your teams to answer all of the above questions.

"With Azure OpenAI, the barrier to start with Open AI on your enterprise data & turn it into internal & external data services has been drastically reduced"

Peter Depypere, Partner Analytics


What's Azure OpenAI?

Azure OpenAI is a service running on Azure Cloud allowing anyone to get started with pre-trained Open AI models & applying them on their own (enterprise) datasets. It's a collection of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services provided by Microsoft Azure Cloud platform. It allows developers to integrate AI and ML technologies into their applications without needing to build and train their own models from scratch.

Azure Open AI offers a range of services, including natural language processing (such as GPT-4), computer vision (DALL-E alike), speech recognition, and decision-making algorithms. These services can be used to automate tasks, improve user experiences, and gain insights from large data sets.

Additionally, Azure Open AI provides tools for building, training, and deploying custom AI models. This includes Azure Machine Learning, which provides a platform for building and deploying machine learning models, and Azure Cognitive Services, which offers pre-built APIs for vision, speech, language, and decision-making.

Overall, Azure Open AI is a powerful set of tools and services that allow developers to easily incorporate AI and ML technologies into their applications, enabling them to make more intelligent and data-driven decisions.

What is the element61 Azure OpenAI Roadmap?

It's an exercise aimed to work with your business & data teams to identify the most impactful use-cases to work with Azure Open AI in your organization. Our team of Analytics experts will work with you to understand your business goals, challenges, and data landscape. We'll then map out potential AI use-cases across different areas of your business, such as customer service, operations, or marketing. In summary: 

  • We brainstorm, define and validate concrete business use-cases
  • We discuss how the Azure OpenAI services can be used to accelerate these use-cases
  • We make things actionable incl. estimating the cost & business case of this use-case
  • We jointly define a concrete plan forward incl. pre-requisites & concrete next steps

Concretely, the Azure OpenAI Roadmap by element61 involves our 3-step approach as we do in any roadmap incl. 

  1. We start by running a series of business interviews across various functional areas incl. finance, HR, sales, marketing, manufacturing. During these interviews, we evaluate strategic initiatives, challenges and tease your team to think beyond existing solutions. We leverage our OpenAI defined use-case book & tangible proof-cases to inspire & trigger new discussions - "could this be relevant in your business?"
  2. Based on the interviews & the ideas identified, we conduct several workshops on how your business can benefit from the Azure OpenAI services as well as other Azure Cognitive services. We host two workshop on how those services integrate in your Data Platform. 

  3. Next, we create documentation & we leverage our use-case framework to list up all the possible use cases with a summary on

    • Strategic relevance

    • Legal constraints

    • Feasibility

    • Running cost

    • Implementation timeline and cost

What's the optional Minimal Viable Product (MVP) offering?

Next to the roadmap, we can leverage the easiness of the Azure OpenAI services to build out an MVP solution on your data within four days. The goal of this MVP implementation is to showcase the power and speed of the Azure OpenAI services and Azure Cognitive Services.

Our team of AI experts will work closely with your team to identify the most impactful use-case for your business and design a custom solution using Azure Open AI services. We'll then build and deploy a working prototype that you can test with real data, providing valuable insights into the potential of AI for your business.

Our MVP offering is designed to be fast, efficient, and cost-effective. We'll work closely with you to ensure that the solution we build meets your business needs and delivers measurable results. And with Azure Open AI, you can be confident that you're leveraging the latest AI and machine learning technologies to drive innovation and growth.

We jointly define the scope of the MVP during the roadmap exercise collaborate with your teams to make this a true showcase for your full organization.
