  • myProductPlatform, Accenture - Accenture

    Platforms are taking over; the most valuable companies are now based on a platform business model. Many non-tech companies are seeking to pivot to platforms, but often lack the engineering, product, and process know-how to enable this transformation. Building a robust, reusable and scalable platform requires talent with deep expertise in multiple highly specialized areas, like testing, SRE, and DevOps. Most non-tech companies don't have these resources on staff already, and hiring and onboarding these employees can take months.

    To solve this problem, Accenture developed myProductPlatform, a turn-key, cloud native solution for complex cloud-based applications. myProductPlatform quickly stands up a true platform architecture to accelerate engineering ramp-up, optimize productivity, and deliver a scalable and robust set of services. It provides the ability to easily provision cloud-native platforms via reliable, scalable, configurable architectural templates based on use-case or industry, using a set of modular components, tied together as a platform blueprint. These platform blueprints can be provisioned to any of the major cloud providers (AWS, Azure, and GCP) in a matter of minutes using a simple web interface. The underlying components provide cloud resources with appropriate instance sizing (per environment type), high availability, backup and retention policies, failover capability, monitoring and alerting, traceability, centralized logging, and more. Security policy analysis is included to ensure compliance with cloud security guidelines. myProductPlatform enables companies to focus their effort and investment on their core business, rather than having to spend time and energy dealing with technical plumbing and generic architecture concerns. It allows companies to pivot to cloud-based platform architectures faster, reducing time-to-market. It also reduces the need to hire and onboard expensive and hard-to-find engineering talent.


    Because it is based on Accenture's best practices and learnings from work at various client environments, myProductPlatform provides an immediate maturity boost to a company's architecture. myProductPlatform also promotes ongoing efficiencies, by starting the system with zero technical debt.

    Dais - BCG GAMMA

     

    Dais is the platform to augment the thinking of business decision makers with the power of AI. It enables the creation, deployment and hosting of human-in-the-loop AI web-apps.
    Dais empowers data scientists to rapidly create, deploy and iterate their AI models into a decision-making application. It does this via a low-code drag and drop interface, and direct deployment of AI models.  The platform also brings Dais App Lineage, a framework that allows promotion of app changes between developers, business testers and business users in a seamless fashion. 
    These applications enable a non-tech savvy business decision maker to easily interact with very sophisticated AI models, bringing an interface that is intuitive and highly customised for their use case and workflow.  Dais will automatically refresh information from business systems and seamlessly integrates AI scenario exploration into the user's day-to-day decision making.
    Dais uses cloud computing to simultaneously simulate thousands of possible futures, solving complex problems in seconds rather than hours. The platform itself is built on the latest scalable container architecture, supporting multiple tenants and scaling to thousands of users and thousands of models. The combination of future visualization, constraint exploration and scenario comparison provides the business user with a fantastic framework to weave their human intelligence into the AI outcomes, resulting in the very best AI enabled business decision.
