Quick Check – AI Maturity Compass

Our compact and free quick check gives you an initial overview of your AI maturity level. This consists of ten dimensions and takes about 5 minutes. At the end, you will receive a report with the results via email. You are then able to find out quickly and easily how your company is positioned regarding AI.

Based on this, appliedAI offers you a comprehensive analysis for your company in the next step – including individualized recommendations for action from one of our strategy experts.

The AI maturity analysis

The AI maturity analysis comprises four phases and usually takes six weeks. Within these phases, you will get to know the current AI maturity level of your company more closely together with us and our partners. In addition, you will receive a benchmark based on comparable companies.

To achieve this, different groups in your company are asked to participate in a comprehensive, 30-minute survey. The result serves as the basis for a tailor-made recommendation to implement AI over the following 12 months.

The development of the maturity analysis was supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI) and BITKOM, the industry association of the German information and telecommunications sector. It is already being used successfully by numerous organizations in several European countries.
