The alliance introduces a reliable AI, enabling finance users to pose real-time questions to enterprise systems in plain language. It empowers finance users to interact directly with AI, promptly receiving accurate responses in the form of dashboards, charts, or text, all without the need for middlemen or niche visualization tools.
KPMG in India and Vianai Systems, a leading Human-Centered AI (H+AI™) platform and products company, have announced a transformational alliance to put reliable, conversational AI directly into the hands of finance users with Vianai’s hila Enterprise.
The alliance will leverage the fine-tuning and optimization capabilities of Vianai’s hila Enterprise with enterprise systems of record. The Conversational Finance will allow finance users, especially finance professionals, to ask any question against their systems of record, internal documents, public data, and other data in natural language, with a view to get immediate responses by way of text, dashboards, charts and more.
How the alliance between KPMG in India and Vianai Systems is unleashing AI’s potential for finance users?
Today the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the use of Large Language Models (LLMs) in enterprises has largely been a non-starter for business users that require an extremely high degree of accuracy and reliability, in particular those in finance roles. Issues of LLM hallucinations and inaccuracies are simply too risky for business-critical functions such as finance to adopt AI.
As a result, finance teams have not been able to take advantage of the latest AI advancements and instead many still rely heavily on Information Technology (IT), analysts, visualization tools, experts, and others to find answers to their questions.
The alliance would see both KPMG in India and Vianai Systems leveraging their respective expertise and resources together to provide this innovative Conversational Finance offering to enterprises looking to transform their finance function.
“Finance functions in enterprises today have an unparalleled need for accuracy, privacy, and security as well as relevance to the context of business. Leveraging the power of LLMs with internal data sources, transaction systems, documents, and other data, as well as public information, would allow enterprises to paint a transparent and accurate picture of their business, and industry. These LLMs can also help finance functions play a critical role in ensuring resilience towards a challenging risk and regulatory environment.
Moreover, while independent SaaS (ERP, CRM, HRMS) companies are geared to launch their own co-pilots, they will fall short in desired value creation, specifically when cross functional insights are required. Large generic models are not able to deliver this today, and we are excited for Vianai Systems and KPMG in India to finally unlock this value for the finance functions of enterprises today,” said Sachin Arora, Partner and Head, KPMG Lighthouse (Analytics, AI and Data), KPMG in India.
How hila Enterprise works: business-relevant generative AI, in context, for enterprise CFOs
hila Enterprise leverages a full suite of AI tools, techniques, and technologies, including Vianai’s Zero Hallucination™ technology, veryLLM verification capabilities, fine-tuning, and optimization techniques, among others. These advancements aim to make Large Language Models (LLMs) safer, more reliable, and context-relevant for business users.
The system effectively utilizes a combination of large public models, open-source language models, Vianai-built models, and even the customer’s proprietary models. This holistic approach enables the system to query vast volumes of data while maintaining a strong connection to the specific context of the business.
Customers benefit from the ability to query any transactional system within their enterprise landscape, unlocking maximum insights through natural language interactions with the systems in real-time.
Furthermore, business users can receive responses generated from a mix of public and private business data. These responses are delivered in real-time and can be tailored to the user’s preferences, whether in the form of a dashboard, chart, text, or any other response format. This comprehensive system empowers finance professionals to obtain critical information efficiently and effectively.
“Delivering the power of AI into the hands of finance users is a foundational step toward making AI available to all business-critical functions. Finance departments and teams must have transparency in their work, and deliver transparency to the outside world – with speed. We are thrilled to be working closely with KPMG to make this a reality for every organization in every industry,” said Dr. Sanjay Rajagopalan, Chief Design & Strategy Officer, Vianai Systems.
