Foundations of Implementing AIDA
AIDA is an Artificial Intelligence Software, enabling the reports to be made, but. What makes the system unique is the machine learning basis by which AIDA learns overtime how your team utilise the JIRA platform, which impacts the accuracy of the reports.
AIDA becomes progressively less reliant on team responses and uses the data gathered to adapt to your team’s ways of working.
For the initial period, the system will require additional information from a small number of team members, in the form of a short survey where team members will give insight into certain KPIs. What’s best - we guarantee that any one team member will not receive more than one email per sprint!
AIDA in 3 Steps
1. Register with a JIRA API key and enter the email addresses of your team members and stakeholders
2. Let the team know they might receive some questions from AI Agile Coach
3. Our machine learning platform starts tracking 42 different signals from JIRA and produce your reports after the second sprint.
AIDA’s reports can be accessed through AIDA UI, the reports provide both visual indicators as well as qualitative, detailed information on progress as well as areas for improvement. The system can pick up on outlying information that may skew the final results. You can use the historic view to see the trends on specific areas of the team’s performance.
Security and Technology
At ICAN we take your business data security seriously.
That's why we encrypt all of our clients' data and store it with Amazon's widely trusted AWS Storage. We exercise complete compliances with data protection legislation and only keep relevant data for a select tie period, with your permission of course, that can be removed at any time, at your request.
We use AWS S3 and EC2 for cloud computing and storage, also leverage from AWS SageMaker for testing different machine learning algorithms.
The future of AIDA includes a host of updates, and development to bring greater prospects to project management teams, this includes widening the scope of platforms such as Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Teams.
We plan to go further with the utilisation of data by growing our data scientists team to create greater depth and value for our users.
With these and so many more developments, we want our users to have the opportunity to meet-up with others in the community, share experiences, knowledge and information about the continuously developing industry. For which, ICAN aim to host a VIP Annual Events for our users.
