Modernization is imperative for government and public service agencies to fully harness the advantages of generative AI. Governments and public service entities are enthusiastically embracing generative AI technologies. According to recent research conducted by McGuide Research Services for Avanade, a staggering 91% of organizations within this sector believe that transitioning to an AI-first operational model within the next year is essential. Additionally, 87% of employees express confidence that leveraging generative AI tools will increase their efficiency and innovative capabilities.

However, this transition requires more than just adopting generative AI tools in hopes of achieving success. Without a modern data platform and a robust cloud infrastructure, organizations risk hindering their progress from the outset. Data modernization stands as a critical component in this journey. Generative AI tools rely heavily on accurate and easily accessible data. Although government and public service agencies have likely made investments in their data infrastructure, it may not be fully optimized for the demands of generative AI yet.

Developing a cloud-first infrastructure that ensures data security by design is crucial. This involves unifying, protecting, and integrating data with existing business applications and AI systems through composable APIs. Acquiring necessary skill sets may present a challenge as organizations may lack these capabilities in-house. Moreover, data must undergo sorting, annotation, and labeling to meet the prerequisites of generative AI.

Incorporating Microsoft Fabric could offer a viable solution to address these complexities. Microsoft Fabric provides organizations with a comprehensive platform equipped with essential tools to support their integration of generative AI technology effectively. By consolidating all data into a single hub through data integration, engineering, warehousing processes, it enables functionalities like data science, real-time analytics, and business intelligence while facilitating access through natural language queries powered by generative AI.

Optimizing for generative AI involves hosting Microsoft Fabric on an SaaS solution based on familiar clouds utilized by most government bodies and public service agencies. Strengthening existing cloud provisions can enhance performance while reducing costs associated with cloud sprawl or integration issues that might impede the success of generative AI implementations.

To facilitate this transformation successfully, organizations need not only advanced technological solutions but also workforce training and support mechanisms in place to adapt seamlessly to new processes enabled by AI technologies.

Avanade offers comprehensive expertise in Microsoft Fabric and Microsoft Copilot alongside specialized capabilities to assist organizations in modernizing their data platforms effectively.
