Artis Consulting bridges the gap between business and technology by delivering the right information to the right person at the right time, helping clients make better decisions that directly impact profitability.
Founded in 2002 as an engineering-driven business intelligence integrator, Artis Consulting has expanded the scope of its capabilities and offerings to encompass emerging technologies that enable clients to differentiate themselves in the current market while positioning them to grow and compete in a rapidly evolving business environment.
As the Microsoft Azure cloud has taken hold as the “world’s computer,” its analytics services, coupled with AI insights, are transforming industries and society, helping businesses make products, goods, and services more intelligent. Powerful insights and limitless scale take new analytics capabilities beyond reporting and data aggregation to enable predictive processing and automated decision making.
Today, Artis Consulting helps its clients facilitate new business models and transform existing ones through improved insight and productivity by delivering Microsoft-based solutions in four key areas: data and analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), and intelligent applications.
The move into analytics and AI
With a professional services practice built on an extensive analytics and AI portfolio, Artis Consulting sees AI as a natural extension of its proficiency in business intelligence that can further expand on the value of solutions and their capacity to solve clients’ business problems.
The company takes a unique, business-centric approach, focusing first on understanding a client’s business processes, or value chain, associated with the desired solution, and then applying proven experience and expertise to ensure that every client selects and deploys the right solution to make a measurable difference and maximize ROI.
Progress in AI is coming at an accelerated pace: the technology can now be applied to solve a tremendous range of business challenges with capabilities that have a material economic impact, from identifying operational complexities, to anomaly detection, to analytics.
Artis Consulting helps clients envision and amplify the potential of their data estates with AI and Machine Learning, unlocking new insights such as predictive models. Whereas previously, the company focused on descriptive and diagnostic analytics, AI and ML have allowed Artis to move into the domain of predictive and prescriptive analytics where the value realized can be even greater by describing future outcomes and potentially facilitating automation.
By enabling clients to aggregate and unify their data estates (for example, with a data lake), Artis Consulting provides a roadmap for clients to accelerate their digital transformation and harness the power of their digital assets.
Analytics and AI partnership with Microsoft
Artis Consulting is an exclusive Microsoft partner with a close relationship that goes back to the company’s earliest days. “By design, the Azure platform democratizes the use of advanced technologies like analytics, AI, and ML, empowering us to build solutions that leverage these technologies at scale and use analytics and AI to create better ways to work and drive value creation,” says Jeff Johnston, a Principal with Artis Consulting. “Analytics and AI are no longer limited to the largest organizations with the biggest budgets. Microsoft’s best-in-class technologies allow us to help more clients identify better ways to create value quicker.”
Artis Consulting has a recognized strength in outsourced product development, helping its clients along on their digital transformation journey through end-to-end app modernization strategies that extend from envisioning innovative solutions, developing them, and going to market for the desired business outcome.
“We bring a unique resourcing model with very fast 30, 60, and 90-day delivery sprints,” explains Ben McMann, a Principal with Artis Consulting. “Our clients are trying to do new things: work faster, streamline workflows, have better access to data, and make more informed decisions. Our paradigm, supporting an agile methodology, lowers the risk to our clients, breaking down business challenges into smaller components, so they can execute quickly, have success, and move on to the next challenge.”
Artis Consulting’s clients benefit from the combination of the company’s expertise in delivering specialized data solutions and the power of the Microsoft platform, which allows Artis to tip the scales of price vs. performance while accelerating time to value.
