As a leading vendor in the enterprise architecture (EA) space, we are excited to announce the integration of AI into our enterprise transformation platform OrbusInfinity, to enable our users to automate, accelerate, and augment business operations with greater support and clarity.
While generative AI promises unprecedented capabilities in automating complex tasks and generating insights, it also brings forth questions around data privacy and security.
This article aims to provide considerations around the responsible use of AI in both EA tooling as well as AI-powered solutions that will be built in organizations internally to deliver augmented customer and end-user experiences.
The AI revolution for enterprise transformation
Data privacy: A core concern
Transparent data usage
We understand that EA tools often require access to sensitive organizational data. AI capabilities must be designed with transparency in mind, ensuring you always know what data is being used, how it's being processed, and who has access to it.
In line with global standards like the EU AI Act and GDPR, AI-powered solutions must be designed for compliance from the ground up. We emphasize ethical AI usage, ensuring that all data processing activities are transparent, traceable, and under human oversight.
Security risks and mitigations
Advanced security measures
Enterprise-grade services come with built-in security features designed to protect against malicious attacks and unauthorized data access. The use of AI technology re-emphasizes the need to implement advanced security measures like state-of-the-art encryption algorithms and data access policies to ensure the highest level of security.
Secure deployment options
For organizations looking for an extra layer of security and compliance, AI models can be deployed into your own private and secure instance. Secure deployment options such as Azure Open AI provide several benefits:
- Enhanced security: Azure's robust security infrastructure adds an additional layer of protection.
- Compliance: Azure OpenAI is compliant with a wide range of international and industry-specific regulations, simplifying governance.
- Data Privacy: with Azure OpenAI, you have the option to use your own data to fine-tune models, and this data will not be used to train the public GPT instances, ensuring your sensitive information remains confidential.
- Scalability: Easily scale your AI capabilities as your AI development needs evolve.
