SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Through a co-created agile process, Stefanini, a $1B global IT provider, partnered with Toyota to create an effective predictive and data analytics solution, which is able to aggregate data from different sources to effect timely business decisions. Reinforcing solutions for automation, Stefanini is promoting the speaking session, “Human-Centric Approach to Tailor Technology” at Gartner ITxpo 2019 held at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort in Orlando on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Agile Methodology focused on Business Challenges
By bringing diverse stakeholders from various parts of a client’s business together to discuss challenges and find solutions, Stefanini Dive is a groundbreaking transformation workshop designed to bring fast, collaborative innovation to your enterprise within a few days. The methodology will help clients explore opportunities in addition to testing disruptive solutions before they are released, creating a shortcut into the digital transformation process.
At Toyota, after a five-day Design DIVE Workshop that included two prototypes, a broad multi-disciplinary team was created including experts from Toyota and Stefanini. “Our main goal was to understand the client’s situation by aggregating data from multiple sources like social media and other websites and creating an AI solution that would be able to predict and analyze data,” said Fabio Caversan, Artificial Intelligence Research & Development Director at Stefanini. “With an intensive focus on collaboration, prototyping and continuous feedback, Stefanini Dive delivered more learning, knowledge, and confidence to find the best solution for Toyota.”
Benefiting Company Performance
The project started on February 28, 2019 with five days of Design Thinking Dive Workshops and development of the first prototype. “Less than one month later, we developed the second prototype and we started the development stage that is in process,” said Caversan.
With the Design Thinking DIVE methodology, AI Intelligence, Text Analytics, Sophie and Predictive Analytics capabilities combined, Stefanini’s solution brings certain benefits to Toyota. “Stefanini’s solution will help Toyota to have a smart, innovative solution which will allow the business to make confident decisions earlier in the development process,” said Mark Bacchus, Senior Manager at Toyota Motor North America. “We are looking forward to continuing the partnership with Stefanini and the development of this new AI System.”
