However, failed or failing projects had been a persistent problem for the company’s management team, impeding their growth potential. Ineffective project planning, insufficient resources, poor project organisation and management strategies, and subjective optimism or pessimism of project managers were the main reasons behind these failures.
To address these issues, NTT DATA needed a cutting-edge AI solution that could improve customer satisfaction, increase profitability, predict failing projects, and help project managers and teams focus on significant business problems. However, some project managers and employees were hesitant to adopt an AI tool for project delivery management.
In collaboration with Galvia, NTT DATA built a secure and scalable AI solution that monitors ongoing projects and predicts future failing projects based on past project data. In a span of a few weeks, the Galvia team loaded, normalised, and mapped ten years of sensitive and complex project management data obtained from NTT DATA’s ERP system. In-depth data analysis was conducted using the latest machine learning algorithms and natural language processing techniques to predict project failures and outcomes. Insights from these predictive models and data were delivered using an interactive dashboard user interface powered by conversational AI.
Following the testing phase, Galvia rolled out the AI solution in segments to project managers across the company and deployed it securely on-premise. The team also provided in-depth training to project managers on embracing the AI tool as a copilot for project managers that is on hand to alert, prompt and focus attention with data-driven insights. Project teams were educated on how the AI solution would collaborate and support them by automating routine tasks.
