Access to information is vital to do your job, whether its product specifications, commercial contracts, or customer proposals. But this information is often spread across the organisation in multiple archives, multiple formats, and legacy systems meaning critical information can be difficult and time consuming to find.
iKVA’s powerful AI plfatform for engineers for engineers can solve this problem by giving you simple access to this information and also proactively and intelligently proactively provide you information within your workflow when you need it.
Discover for engineers unlocks the knowledge stored in your organisation, saves you time looking for it, increases efficiency and reduces your overall business risk
“20-30% of our time is spent searching – using a solution like iKVA’s represents a productivity saving of $2m/year”.
Jon Rains, General Manager, Mott MacDonald
An engineer in a larger engineering consultancy is creating a Statement of Work for a project.
The first thing the engineer wants to do is see if there are any similar pieces of work done by the company. To do this he simply drags & drops the project proposal into iKVA’s Discover for Engineers and searches across the entire organisation’s knowledge base to find information – and because Discover’s AI is using an entire document as a search query as opposed to just a few keywords the results brought back are much more accurate and relevant.
As the engineer starts to create the SoW in MS Word, the Discover for Engineers plug-in proactively and intelligently suggests information that is relevant to what the engineer is writing in real time.
This means the engineer can simply cut & paste information from similar SoWs and save time or insert reference to other information such as technical specifications, proposals, or other relevant client information.
This all saves the engineer time, reduces re-work, and reduces business risk.
iKVA’s Hosted Cloud deployment options provide private instances for organisations so each organisation’s data is kept secure and separate
Cloud provider options include Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Digital Ocean
Kubernetes pods are used to isolate access
Command-line access to all hosts is protected via SSH configured to require multi-factor authentication and requires routing via a single jump-host. All hosts are interconnected via a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network, and access to our Kubernetes cluster is only possible via the VPC
All SaaS host environments are at least ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified
The hosted service has a 99.95% uptime Service Level Guarantee for queries and 99.9% for knowledge packs
For more security conscious organisations, iVKA’s solutions can be deployed on private clouds
All knowledge packs and communication resides within the organisation’s control
Azure and AWS clouds preferred
iKVA will support the creation of the service which is deployed using Kubernetes, Terraform, and Helm Charts
On Premises and UKCloudX: iKVA’s modular technology can in theory be provided on these platforms but this has not yet been trialed
