August 22, 2023, ST. LOUIS – Saefix and Faith Group are pleased to announce an expanded relationship with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). This collaboration complements the Saefix/Faith Group Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence (AI CoE) lab environment, which leverages the latest high-performance NVIDIA GPU hardware and ISV software applications purpose-built for AI workloads that require highly dense and capable hardware at the network edge.  

The intent of the AI CoE is to accelerate AI technology development, demonstrate AI use cases, and bring innovative solutions to the market faster. The HPE partnership will significantly enhance development and implementation of high-impact AI applications, services, and experiences to clients. This collaboration helps facilitate the Saefix/Faith Group commitment to driving innovative solutions for clients across its key vertical markets.  

“Our collaboration with HPE helps demonstrate how modern AI-focused service hosting can enable hybrid cloud architecture for computer vision and machine learning, conserving bandwidth, enhancing site survivability, and allowing for high-capacity data logging and analytics. Our AI CoE will help demonstrate the art of the possible so we can expand solution development that help clients use AI to solve complex operational challenges,” explains Rick Adams, Chief Technology Officer of Saefix.

Within back-of-house management, the servers include Integrated Lights-Out technology that provides server management capabilities to securely configure, monitor, and update the servers seamlessly from anywhere, allows for specific task automation, and improves detection and enforcement of security.

This new platform will serve as a catalyst for scaling rapid integration development services, proof of concepts, and client evaluation using an in-house, cloud-extended lab service model. The shared Lab serves as a controlled environment for the firms’ clients to test-drive and evaluate integrated solutions first-hand to create industry-specific deployment models. Clients can run concepts of operations, processes, and various scenarios, along with performing in-depth market analysis. This equipment will serve as the backbone for Faith Group and Saefix to continue to evaluate and enhance vendor products and solutions from other collaborators, including Genetec, BriefCam, and Cisco Systems.  

As Saefix/Faith Group complete Test Lab solution analysis, white papers will become available to showcase a variety of solutions’ results and recommendations. These solutions will also then be easily adoptable by the firm’s wide client base.
