Nexus’s AI Factory – Kickstart your AI journey at speed and scale
A McKinsey global survey revealed that over 50% of businesses worldwide had already adopted AI in at least one of their business functions. In the UK alone, over 73% of business leaders see AI playing a crucial role in their organisations’ future. There’s no doubt that AI will play a pivotal part in any business’ digital transformation strategy and is quickly becoming a necessity in order to stay competitive. However, even though business leaders understand the AI’s importance, they still struggle to successfully identify opportunities for and successfully implement AI solutions into their processes.
Why? There are a myriad of challenges business leaders face when it comes time to kickstart their organisation’s AI journey. It’s not as simple as developing a successful pilot and implementing it overnight. From identifying the highest-impact business cases, to making sure solutions can scale, to integrating an AI solution into already-existing legacy processes, digital transformation is no small feat, and takes a team of highly-trained business and technology experts to execute.75% of enterprises will shift from piloting to operationalising AI by the end of 2024.

IDENTIFYING HIGH-IMPACT BUSINESS CASES
Companies often implement AI technology and then look for problems it can solve, instead of starting with the business needs themselves. This leads to wasted time and resources and may result in no high-value case identification.
It’s difficult to measure and predict ROI. Moreover, AI and machine learning bring about improvement in quality and efficiency which may not be visible immediately.
SOLUTIONS THAT DON’T SCALE
AI solutions can be made to address specific processes, but many times these solutions cannot scale. This lack of foresight results in an expensive lesson for many organisations who invested heavily in short-sighted projects.
LACK OF EXPERTISE
A lack of necessary skills and expertise in-house is a major blocker in the early stages of AI adoption, especially for smaller and medium-sized companies
INTEGRATION INTO EXISTING PROCESS
Integrating AI into a company’s existing functions is a major challenge, especially when the reengineering of these processes involves downtown and employee training.
What is Nexus’ AI Factory?
The AI Factory works as a pilot production centre for companies where they can discover, evaluate and scale AI opportunities within their organisation. We help businesses accelerate AI adoption at every stage: from business case evaluation to Proof of Concept to production and monitoring.
