application and data modernization

Application modernization is a means, not an end. That’s why we begin every modernization engagement by first helping customers to define or refine their desired business outcomes, then developing and implementing the mix of technologies and solutions that deliver those outcomes.

AI/ML applications converge analytics, data science, and automation in order to accelerate new business insights that drive transformative outcomes. These days, most of our inbound inquiries from customers are those looking to modernize their applications and data in order to adopt an advanced technology like AI/ML. Many have already started experimenting with implementing a machine learning (ML) solution or are playing with prototypes of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.

One of the key values that we deliver is the ability to accelerate experimentation with these technologies. One example is an early-stage health tech company that was still pursuing product-market fit.

The company used Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to collect data from patients with implanted cardiac pacemakers. The data is then transmitted to the cloud and used to diagnose health conditions such as hypertension, heart arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, heart attacks, etc. Every night, the company received heart monitoring data for a large patient population via bedside IoT remote monitoring devices. Each patient’s data were analyzed to detect anomalies such as arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, heart attacks, etc.

However, the company’s existing models only delivered 50% accuracy in the analysis and classification of the heart data. Incorrect diagnosis marginalized their products’ ability to impact positive patient outcomes. By building our customers an improved data lake and accelerating their ability to experiment with new machine learning algorithms, we helped them increase the accuracy of the IoT data to 95%!
