As we released the Applied SAFe Companion to customers in March 2024, we gained further experience, and customers asked questions about the companion’s architecture and various deployment options. With this post, we continue to delve into this thrilling exploration of AI.

The Applied SAFe Companion from PEDCO helps to
master SAFe with ease in a practical context.
It’s your guided personal learning experience,
powered by AI.

Companion Architecture and Deplyoment Options

At PEDCO, we prioritize data protection and security in our deployment options:

  • Fully hosted deployment: This option provides a fully managed solution where all components — the Content & Vector Database, Orchestrator, LLM (OpenAI), and Frontend — are hosted on secure cloud infrastructure provided by our partners Microsoft and Google. Ideal for businesses looking for a hassle-free turnkey solution that minimizes internal IT overhead.
  • Hybrid deployment: This flexible deployment model hosts the Vector Database, Orchestrator, and Frontend at the customer’s data centre, with the LLM (OpenAI) powered by our cloud partners. It’s a balanced solution for businesses that require both control and cloud-powered intelligence.
  • On-premise deployment: Tailored for organizations with the highest standards for data security and residency, this option locates all components — Vector Database, Orchestrator, your existing LLM, and Frontend — within the customer’s data centre.
