Your work reimagined, powered by AI

Core to the IBM Consulting Advantage Services platform is IBM Consulting Assistants, a library of role-based AI assistants, trained on IBM proprietary data to support key consulting project roles and tasks. Accessed through a conversation-based interface, we've democratized the way consultants use assistants, creating an experience where our people can find, create, and continually refine assistants to meet the needs of our clients faster.

Why IBM Consulting Assistants?
Multiple models. Singular focus on value.

No one model will rule them all.  Purpose-built models are already outperforming larger models on metrics such as accuracy and cost.1  IBM Consulting Assistants allow our consultants to select from the models that best solve your business challenge.  Those models are packaged with pre-engineered prompts and output formats so our people can get tailored outputs to their queries, such as creating a detailed user persona or a code for a specific language and function. The result is that you get more valuable work, faster.  

Outputs you can trust from architecture built for enterprise

Whether working in regulated or non-regulated industries, generative AI for enterprise requires mitigating risk in data used and the outputs created.  IBM Consulting Assistants use an architecture designed for enterprise data, including guardrails that flag sensitive data to enable safe, trusted and unbiased results.  Our consultants can even test for bias on any piece of output to reduce risk and increase trust as you advance your initiatives. 

Help improve results with data you can’t get anywhere else

IBM Consulting Advantage strategy assistants give our consultants access to millions of anonymized survey data points from the IBM Institute for Business Value, so they can evaluate performance against real benchmarks across 19 industries and dozens of business-specific enterprise functions.  This data helps more accurately assess your performance versus the market to understand the scale of the improvements that can be made and create a more accurate valuation of what that could mean for your bottom line.  With more accurate insights, you can better prioritize resources and investments to accelerate your advantage.
