With AI adoption surging across industries, businesses are constantly on the lookout for tools that can help them navigate the complex landscape of artificial intelligence. To assist these companies with ensuring they are adequately prepared, Rackspace Technology unveiled a tool for businesses venturing into the world of artificial intelligence. Foundry for AI by Rackspace (News - Alert) (FAIR) is an AI Diagnostic designed to help organizations assess their AI readiness quickly and efficiently.

The diagnostic tool is available for free at fair.rackspace.com and makes it possible for organizations of all sizes to take advantage of its capabilities. This includes the ability to deep dive into an organization's AI readiness, evaluating more than 50 data points across three critical dimensions: foundational, operational, and strategic readiness.

The data and best practices are gleaned from hundreds of customer use cases and collective technology experience. This comprehensive approach ensures that businesses receive a holistic view of their current AI readiness and, more importantly, targeted recommendations for their next steps.

After completing the AI readiness assessment, Rackspace Technology offers three unique service options to harness the power of generative AI:

  • FAIR Ideate: This service involves an interactive and collaborative ideation workshop aimed at helping organizations identify practical use cases for generative AI that have clear business impacts. It leverages insights from AI readiness diagnostics to ensure successful AI adoption.
  • FAIR Incubate: Designed as an agile and iterative program, FAIR Incubate facilitates the co-creation of an enterprise's initial generative AI solution. It establishes the necessary technology stack and evaluates the feasibility of AI integration, ensuring a smooth fit into existing organizational processes.
  • FAIR Industrialize: This service is a systematic approach to transform the AI solution into a product. It involves implementing governance measures, defining relevant metrics, and optimizing both the AI model and Distributed Cloud Infrastructure for continuous improvement and scalability.

“The new FAIR AI Diagnostic is designed to accelerate the adoption of responsible AI in our customer organizations, and to establish the long-term viability of these AI solutions to drive the desired business outcomes,” said Srini Koushik, Rackspace CTO and Global Lead for FAIR. “Due to Rackspace’s time to market, quality of decades of insights and fanatical customer support, we are providing our knowledge to organizations as fast as possible to seize these massive business opportunities together.”
