Deetken Insight, a Vancouver-based management consulting firm, has partnered with Cypress AI to launch an artificial intelligence consulting offering.

Based in Los Angeles, Cypress AI provides AI tools for RFPs and grant applications, policy management, knowledge management, and data and content analytics. The boutique firm, which lists four employees on its website, also provides related consulting in planning, implementation, and training.

Cypress AI has expertise working with language models such as OpenAI and Anthropic and deploying solutions on platforms such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Bedrock.

Deetken and Cypress AI will work with public and private sector clients to help maximize potential of AI integration while avoiding the consequences of poor planning and implementation, such as security and privacy risk, operational disruption, and legal challenges.

They will together offer services in AI assessment and discovery, strategy and roadmap development, implementation, training and change management, policy development and risk assessment, and ongoing optimization.

“Deetken Insight has been providing IT consulting and strategic advisory services to clients for more than 20 years, specializing in developing high-level technology roadmaps, business strategies and governance models, as well as leading and supporting major IT procurements, service improvements and investments,” said André Powell, partner at Deetken Insight. “Our collaboration with Cypress AI enriches our robust IT consulting services, enabling our clients to harness the full potential of AI for their organizations.”

Callam Ingram, co-founder of Cypress AI, added, “We are excited to collaborate with Deetken Insight to deliver AI consulting services to Canadian public and private sector organizations. Deetken Insight’s expertise in IT consulting, strategy development and change management support combined with Cypress AI’s advanced AI capabilities provides a powerful, end-to-end solution for companies seeking to leverage AI for innovation and growth.”

Founded in 2006, Deetken provides consulting services in strategy, business transformation and optimization, partnership and deal strategy, technology economics, energy economics, labour and workforce strategy, and data science.

The firm, which has 50 employees listed on its website, supports federal government, provincial ministry, and crown corporation clients, as well as other public sector entities and private sector companies.
