Avanade Technology Vision 2017: Get Ready for the AI-First World

  2. 2. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 2 www.avanade.com/techvision »« For the past few decades, every ten years a major disruption has occurred that altered the digital landscape: from the PC revolution of the 1990s to the internet boom of the 2000s and the mobile-first rise in the 2010s. Each development brought powerful opportunities for businesses that were smart enough to change. So what is next? Avanade’s view is that businesses need to focus first on artificial intelligence (AI) – a broad collection of technologies and processes that has become a reality and is already beginning to add value to businesses, as well as becoming more affordable and accessible. Transform now To win in the AI-first world and be relevant for tomorrow, you need to begin transforming now or you will not be able to catch up. We see five themes that will take your business into this new era: • New User Experiences: Deliver more meaningful – and magical – interactions • Augmented Workforce: Take human capabilities to new heights • Platform Economy: Gain exponential value from new ecosystems • DesignOps: Re-engineer your outcomes • Digital Ethics: Leap into the unknown with a clear conscience Organizations have a brief window, starting now, to experiment and become familiar with the business models, strategies and technologies to get ready for the AI-first world. By the year 2020, if you aren’t AI-first, it will be too late, much as it was for any business that failed to make the leap to digital in decades past.

  3. 3. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 3 www.avanade.com/techvision »« Everything you know about the customer experience is changing. Powered by the rise of artificial intelligence technologies (such as neural networks, natural language processing, cognitive and machine learning), new user interfaces (UI) are emerging. As mobile apps decline in popularity, chatbots and conversational UIs, such as Microsoft’s Cortana, Amazon’s Alexa and other intelligent assistants, are becoming a growing factor in the way we interact with technology. As our mastery of cloud, big data and mobile continues to converge, AI-driven user interfaces will lead to ever-deeper, more meaningful interactions, sharply tailored to the individual and his or her situation. We call this “situational centricity,” a step further than simply user-centric or individual-centric. In the future, it won’t just feel like personalized service. It will be distinctly human, almost always “invisible” and seem magical. To be ready, businesses must rethink the experiences they provide to customers. Start experimenting with AI technologies today and broaden those skills. And continue to build your data capabilities because while AI may seem like magic on the outside, the real magic happening underneath is the data powering the business models. New User Experiences Deliver more meaningful – and magical – interactions
  4. 4. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 4 www.avanade.com/techvision »« With the rise of AI, we will also transform the modern workforce. By augmenting employees’ capabilities using AI, specifically across intelligent automation, Robotic Process Automation and physical automation, workers can achieve far more, faster and with better results. To compete for the best and brightest minds, businesses will need to leverage technology that makes work more exciting, and more focused on meaningful, higher-order tasks – things that are more human, less robotic by nature. Organizations that aren’t automating the most mundane areas of their workforce risk boring, and ultimately losing, their most important resource: their people. To retain talent and grab a competitive edge, you need to start now. If you aren’t thinking of some element of automation you’re already behind. Begin with simple, straight-forward processes, especially if they can be done using any number of AI-related technologies. It is also important to have a roadmap in place to help guide high-level conversations, as well as discussions across the entire workforce about what automation actually means to your workers. Push forward with a culture that continually underscores the real goal in mind: augmentation that helps drive business outcomes. The human touch will be an asset, not a liability. Augmented Workforce Take human capabilities to new heights
  5. 5. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 5 www.avanade.com/techvision »« With frictionless AI-empowered experiences, the world is beginning to adopt open, fluid and seamless business models. It’s called the “Platform Economy,” and it’s a world where businesses seamlessly leverage existing, widespread borderless ecosystems to reach, delight and retain customers. The Platform Economy is powered by a mesh of interconnected services and solutions that spans across people, things, algorithms, digital personal assistants, automated agents and other entities. Not only is this mesh getting denser, but its scale and reach are rapidly expanding. We are already seeing the emergence of de facto platforms – the ecosystems where a majority of transactions will take place in any given industry. Think Amazon Echo, Samsung SmartThings, Etsy, the App Store and so on. Meanwhile, digital innovations such as blockchain and the internet of things are helping push this evolution forward at lightning speed. The challenge for organizations is to understand how to leverage these platforms, making the leap from business owner to platform merchant. To succeed, you will need to plug into this new world of opportunities. It’s important you start today to digitize your business, develop the right IT skills, and transform your culture so that your business is in a position to easily and seamlessly join emerging platforms. Platform Economy Gain exponential value from new ecosystems
  6. 6. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 6 www.avanade.com/techvision »« In recent years we have witnessed the rise of two similar, yet distinct practices across the enterprise. On one hand, modern engineering methods, such as agile and DevOps, have rewired our approach to software development, product lifecycles, and the speed we go to market with new products, services and solutions. On the other hand, design thinking is helping businesses adopt a deeply human-centric viewpoint, redefining why and what they should be building in the first place. But keeping DevOps and design concepts separate is no longer acceptable given both the scale and pace of change in the Platform Economy and AI-first era. It’s time for businesses to start to combine design thinking principles with their modern engineering teams and projects. Think of it as design-driven engineering, or “DesignOps.” This new approach should redefine the processes and methods you undertake on every project, at every iterative step. Organizations will need to build up a culture, mindset and business model ready for a DesignOps revolution – where everyone is focused on the user and value. But don’t expect to build this new way of working overnight. We recommend you start small, picking out a few projects (such as process automation, intelligent bots, or augmented and mixed-reality experiences) that can be tested using this new approach. DesignOps Re-engineer your outcomes
  7. 7. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 7 www.avanade.com/techvision »« With the rise of artificial intelligence and automation, we are fundamentally changing everything about the way we live, work and understand our world. Compounded by the related trends of big data, the digitization of everything and our borderless Platform Economy, the decisions we make about our digital business are particularly significant. In the AI-first world, every digital action can have an equal and potentially unintended consequence. Over the coming years, our world will deal with the results of the technology and business decisions we make today. Because of this, we underline the need for all businesses to adopt digital ethics and act with responsibility – with big data, comes great responsibility. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you exactly what will happen next, but we can tell you that we need to plan for it now. Businesses must develop a digital ethics framework that addresses issues like data security, trust and privacy, and provides guidelines about how data should be obtained and used. With increased demand for transparency, compliance and privacy, enterprises that step up and take responsibility and accountability today will dominate the markets of tomorrow. Digital Ethics Leap into the unknown with a clear conscience
  8. 8. CONCLUSIONAUGMENTED WORKFORCE PLATFORM ECONOMY DESIGN OPS DIGITAL ETHICS NEW USER EXPERIENCES INTRODUCTION 8 www.avanade.com/techvision »« We are, without a doubt, entering a new decade of disruption – one where AI reigns supreme. The evidence is clear, compelling and everywhere. It is seen in the way we serve our customers. It is signaled in the way we organize our daily lives. We witness it in the way our workers work. And we can spot it in the way new business models are born (and die) every day. Crucially, these transformations will have ripple effects; some of these secondary impacts may be positive, while others could be negative. Not only do they demand you change your business approaches – how you design and deliver products, services and solutions. They also require you to think deeper and on new ethical levels. You must determine how what you are doing will affect humanity. You must ask the ethical questions now, because the impact of your technological decisions may be potentially enormous. We can’t tell you where you will be in the future. But we can analyze the past and read the signs of the present to tell you what you need to do now to win in the AI-first world.
