Preparing your institution for the AI journey – a transformation
Artifical Intelligence (AI) is disrupting higher education rapidly and creating a powerful tool for student success. We specialize in applying AI to the entire student journey from the point of the first contact to alumni and help universities in harnessing the power of AI to make predictions, provide recommendations on the best options available to the university for student success. The AI journey is transformational in nature and needs a strategic thought process behind making it work.
We understand that many universities have started looking at AI and are at various levels of maturity. Azorus provides a strategic consulting service that can help you to make this transition to create smarter and intelligent AI-based systems.
We provide the following strategic consulting services:
1. Data Assessment
AI related insights depend on the availability of good quality data and we provide a data assessment service to help you get the data ready for AI-based transformation. We have our data experts who can assess the current state of your data, IT applications and provide recommendations on getting the data architecture ready for an AI journey. The legacy data architectures need to evolve for an AI future. We will provide a future state data architecture with specific recommendations based on your current state.
2. AI strategy for student success

3. Using AI for enhancing Marketing ROI
Using AI for optimizing the marketing spend is the way forward for getting the best value from the marketing budget. We provide this service to benchmark your marketing process and provide recommendations on using AI to provide an improvement on key marketing metrics like cost of student acquisition, better lead conversion, campaign/event effectiveness.
4. Getting the Enterprise Architecture ready for AI
All the IT assets, data, business processes that are involved in AI implementation, need to be aligned from an enterprise architectural perspective to provide a near real-time experience for executives to enable faster decision making. We provide an assessment service of the enterprise architecture and provide strategic recommendations on its evolution to meet AI transformation goals.
5. AI Integration Services
Data is the fuel for the AI engine. The data architectures in most institutions have evolved from legacy systems to today’s world of enterprise data warehouses. However, from the perspective of getting the AI to provide near real-time predictions, integrations to transactional systems like SIS, HR, LMS and even financial systems are necessary. We offer consulting services to design, develop and deploy custom integrations to these transactional systems through a middleware strategy and an enterprise service bus.
