Reach your business goals with data and AI
No matter which industry you are in, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is drastically changing it. This brings new challenges, but also a world of opportunities. By leveraging the power of data, the EluciDATA Lab at Sirris will help you to future-proof your processes, services, or products and increase your competitive edge. Let’s join forces and connect the opportunities of AI to your business objectives.


A wide range of possibilities also for SMEs
Data and Artificial Intelligence are no longer the exclusive domain of billion dollar tech companies such as Facebook and Amazon. AI also offers a spectrum of new possibilities and opportunities for smaller market players and SMEs. Think product and customer profiling, machine performance monitoring, or business process optimisation.

Nonetheless, it is not trivial to gauge how your business may benefit from AI. For that reason, the EluciDATA Lab at Sirris can give you all the inspiration, advice and support you need. Even if you are only just about to embark on your data project, we can help you reach your company’s goals with AI — no matter what sector or niche you operate in.

Is there business potential in your data? Is your data innovation idea feasible? And which technology is most suitable to tackle your business challenges? Our experts will help you to answer all these questions, but do not stop there. You can count on their full support throughout the implementation of your project, up to and including proof-of-concept realisations.

ILIAS Solutions provides a technological platform for organisations that manage a large fleet of mobile and complex vehicles deployed worldwide. The most important component of this platform, I-UMS, is a smart device that can be mounted on a wide variety of vehicles. This device continuously monitors the use of the vehicles via various sensors (for example, accelerometer, gyroscope, etc.) and the vehicle’s CANbus interface, and can integrate the data generated by the vehicle itself. It can send the collected data to a server once the vehicle comes close to a specific communications antenna.
