Data and AI sprints

Discover your data's true potential with the power of AI

Do you work for an organisation with large amounts of data? And have an ambition to adopt AI? Our data and AI sprints can transform your approach.

Arrange a sprint

Unlocking data and adopting AI

Getting the most out of your data requires effective data management. Cloud-based technologies, like Azure, enable organisations to tackle specific use cases one-by-one, within a strategic framework. This approach is particularly powerful when incorporating AI technologies to gain insight from your data and to improve processes.

This bite-sized approach can accelerate how you analyse, test, gain insights, and co-design with stakeholders. By integrating AI tools, you can enhance the depth and accuracy of your data analysis, leading to more robust insights. You can then scale successful use cases rapidly and expand them to other applications, such as AI and process automation, improving operational efficiency and decision-making.

A Storm ID data and AI sprint will help you discover these opportunities and use cases. Over the course of a single week, using our in-house accelerator environment, you can leverage advanced AI techniques to address long-standing challenges. Imagine that. A problem your organisation has been banging their heads against for years. And in 5 days, we uncover a solution together, using cutting-edge AI and data management strategies.

What happens in a data and AI sprint

We can tailor a data and AI sprint to your needs, but they usual follow a consistent format. Although we usually use sprints to discover a business need, we can also use them as a technical hackathon or to assess data maturity or AI readiness. Just let us know what you're after.

Day 01

Agreeing sprint goal

We'll have initial discussions to understand your business need and context. Then we'll define objectives together, and identify stakeholders and data sources.

Day 02-04

Building the proof of concept

We'll build a prototype in Microsoft Fabric using your data or similar open source data. Using our own Azure environment and tried and tested pipeline, we'll create a rough and ready proof of concept in your context.

Day 05

Running a discovery workshop

This will be a facilitated workshop with around 5 to 7 of your stakeholders and is best done in person. Stakeholders will have a chance to see the proof of concept in action. As a group, we'll develop requirements for a specific use case of the proof of concept service. We'll then deliver a set of recommendations for developing and scaling a data platform.

The technology we use

Microsoft Fabric

We use Microsoft Fabric in our data and AI sprints to prototype use cases quickly. It offers a low-code environment to ingest, store and manage data. Using the advanced analytics and AI services offered by Microsoft. Our secure environment is set up and tested, ready to take advantage of the great things your data can do.

Microsoft Azure

Depending on what we discover during a data and AI sprint, we'll recommend the best technology choices for you going forward. We know how to best use Azure tools including OpenAI, Data Factory, Databricks and Data Lake. These cloud-based tools can be used to help you achieve your goals with data and AI swiftly, providing a platform to put them into action within your organisation.
