As you support your clients to make high-value decisions, you’ve probably used a variety of tools: spreadsheets, Business Intelligence, Monte Carlo, Operations Research algorithms, simulation, and more.
But these technologies are not as widely used as they should be, especially for high-value decisions. They’re also hard for your clients to use, meaning that usually you deliver reports with answers, instead of in-process tools that generate continuous value.
World Modeler 2.0 is a state-of-the-art, immersive digital boardroom solution built specifically for technology- or subject-matter-expert consultants supporting internal or external clients who make high-value decisions.
Your clients need to tap into Artificial Intelligence, the best human intelligence they have available, and real-time data sources to make—and re-make—high-value decisions. They want g a “digital boardroom” that allows them to interactively explore the impact of decisions in multiple scenarios, with various assumptions, on their business outcomes. They want to change elements of this picture in real time and to run instant simulations that builds on powerful simulation, AI, and computing back-end cloud-based technology.
It’s time to join the community that’s discovering the next generation of decision making, with great value and ROI, to both you and your clients.
We offer decision intelligence solutions to solve complex problems: from workshops to end-to-end projects. DI is the future of AI: it adds an “action and outcome layer” to AI, which is otherwise limited to predictions, diagnosis, answers, and labeling.
DI can take your system that predicts which device is most likely to fail, to one that helps you choose the best action that achieves the best business outcomes.
DI can take your system that labels security intrusions to one that helps you choose which actions to take when that happens.
DI can take your system that sorts through images of a situation to find a problematic one, to a system that helps you determine the best course of action to fix it.
Simply put, data is backwards-facing. It’s like watching an elephant’s footprints, rather than understanding the elephant itself. Systems are forward-looking. There is no coincidence in the fact that your rear-view mirror is smaller than your windshield. Yet most organizations look backwards, assuming future equals past. This is no longer true.
So let’s roll up our sleeves together, and take your organization to the next level.
It doesn’t have to be hard.
You still need your data. It’s always going to be an important tool in validating where you’ve been, and of course, operational data (like a customer’s address) is critical.
But when it comes to making decisions, data is only part of the picture. Once you make a decision and execute on it, this creates a cascade of events within your organization. Understanding how the decision leads to an impact…and another…and another…until you’ve reached your objective (or not) may sound like a daunting proposition. But here’s the rub: you’re doing it already, in your head, every time you think through the consequences of a decision. Why not get some computer help with that? Even a little can go a long way. Because otherwise, you’re facing the fog shown in the picture above.
We offer decision intelligence consulting, and decision orchestration software and solutions.
Here’s what you can expect when working with us to improve your organizational decision making. Think of this as an “a la carte” menu; some organizations choose the whole bundle, some do one part at a time. Each has value on its own.
Company-wide presentation, so everyone knows what we’re up to.
Decision-specific workshop. We typically work with a multi-functional team. We begin by aligning around desired business objectives, then proceed through decision specification, design (levers, links, external data, and more), and iterate. We work visually and collaboratively, and often the focus is understanding the links between previously silo’d groups, and modeling the “whack-a-mole” of unintended consequences.
Data assessment. Usually, only 20% of the data contains 80% of the business value. The challenge is to determine which data contains the value. Decision intelligence provides a structured and rigorous approach to figuring this out. If you don’t take this approach, you can waste a lot of time managing data using “operational” methods, where less expensive “analytical” approaches are a tremendously better fit.
Decision visualization. We usually build custom visualizations for our clients. You can see a demo here (for program management), and another here. We build these to your specifications, to meet the needs of your team.
Decision orchestration Here, we work with your organization to integrate a real-time decision navigation infrastructure into your business. Our value proposition: “the best of both worlds”: using our platform means that we can built solutions at low risk and lower cost and much more quickly than other companies (indeed, we once built a full bank risk analysis system in under six weeks). At the same time, it’s fully customized to your needs, as if we’d built it from scratch. Why this is possible? We’ve discovered what’s required in a general-purpose data and decision management framework, including optimization, data binding, visualization, simulation, and more.
Add-ons to the above include:
Introduction to R
Introduction to neural networks in R
Introduction to machine learning in R
Building World Modeler custom visualizations
Deep-dive decision dependency design
Enterprise architecture integration
Web-based interactive data survey / gathering creation
Custom model visualization development
So let’s explore together whether supercharging your organization’s decision intelligence makes sense for you.
