App Innovation (1 week)

We educate your team on the new Microsoft platform and intelligence solutions. This includes Cognitive Services for vision, speech, language, knowledge and search. We will also dive into Azure Machine Learning that enables predictive analytics and the Azure Bot Service that interacts naturally with users within websites and applications. Finally, we will show you how to deploy cross-platform applications through Xamarin.

Intelligence Roadmap (1 week)

The modernization of your critical applications may seem daunting. Our goal is to work with your team to develop a strategic plan with value-driven deliverables. This collaborative effort will reveal opportunities for enhanced productivity within your applications, intranets and external websites. Once identified, Marquam will develop a next-generation architecture that incorporates intelligence and scalability.

Proof of Concept (4 weeks)

Based on the Intelligence Roadmap, Marquam will develop a proof-of-concept for one business unit. We take the knowledge gained from our strategic plan and implement a combination of technologies that are guaranteed to enhance productivity and move you toward a more intelligent infrastructure.
