ChatGPT and co. are currently on everyone's lips. "Generative AI" and "Large Language Models" (LLMs) are spreading in many applications and making artificial intelligence (AI) known beyond self-driving cars. But what do these technologies offer beyond fun applications and more comprehensible search results? How can the enormous opportunities offered by artificial intelligence be utilised profitably in companies? This presentation is about the specific use of AI in corporate planning, which tools it is helpful for and what benefits can be achieved with AI.

Peter Strohm, Head of Platform Customer Interaction for AI & Innovation at Jedox

More interactions and better decisions with data chats

The advancing democratization of data requires a clear strategy for how information is provided. Presentation appropriate to target groups on the relevant devices increases the willingness of users to engage with the data. The integration of chat functionalities into reporting dashboards not only promotes the analysis of data, but also collaboration across team boundaries. KPI-CHAT offers the function of commenting on data points and discussing them in the chat analogous to Whatsapp. Fast reactions and a high level of transparency not only promote data analysis, but also collaboration for well-founded decision-making.

Dr. Markus Beck, Head of Data & Insights localsearch, Swisscom

Power BI impresses with its performance, flexibility and user-friendliness

Power BI is a very good solution for the creation of reports and dashboards, especially for those users who are already familiar with Microsoft products. The combination of user-friendliness, integration and a supportive community quickly convince, in addition there are unbeatable advantages in the Code-Free data transformation: Power query is a deliberate engine that makes comprehensive extraction and transformation processes possible- even inexperienced power BI beginners are quickly on Begin. I will show you how to build ESG reports with it.

What can the Microsoft Data Fabric do?

"Microsoft's Data Fabric is a comprehensive platform from Microsoft designed to help organizations effectively manage, analyze and derive insights from their data. This platform integrates various tools, services and technologies that cover the entire data lifecycle. Microsoft Data Fabric enables organizations to capture, store and process large volumes of data. The platform enables data to be integrated from multiple sources, such as databases, cloud storage, IoT devices and more. This allows companies to get a comprehensive view of their data and see connections that help them make better decisions. One of the key strengths of Microsoft Data Fabric is its scalability. Companies can customize the platform according to their growing data requirements and easily process large volumes of data. This enables efficient data analysis and opens up opportunities for real-time analytics, where companies can respond quickly to changes and trends. Microsoft Data Fabric also offers advanced analytics capabilities, including machine learning, artificial intelligence and predictive analytics. These capabilities allow companies to build complex models to gain insights from their data, identify trends and predict future developments. This enables them to make data-driven decisions and optimize their business processes." Michael Schwan, CEO HICO Group

How Customer Centricity is measured with the NPS

"Customer Centricity is a strategic approach where companies put the customer at the center of their business activities. It is about understanding customer needs and expectations, improving their experience and offering products or services that meet their requirements. Companies can thus achieve differentiated positioning. Customer Centricity also involves actively listening to and incorporating customer feedback. To this end, we use the Net Promoter Score NPS, which provides measurable customer feedback in response to the question: would you recommend us to your best friend? By responding to and using customer feedback to continuously improve their products, services and processes, companies can drive innovation. Customers become valuable sources of ideas and suggestions, leading to a better customer experience and increased competitiveness. Customer Centricity is our philosophy and the foundation of our value framework, NPS our measurement method." Bastian Lossen, CCO HICO Group
