Gradyent + The IT Solutions:

AI-based heating network optimization.



About the client

As a promising scale-up in optimizing heating networks with the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Gradyent collaborates with major European energy suppliers. Gradyent offers parties insight into their heating network; they can, therefore, measure at any time from source to the customer what is happening within a heating network and know what actions to take. This leads to optimal returns and helps them to achieve major savings.

The task

From the start, Gradyent was looking for an innovative partner to help further develop the idea for its platform. Robert Vrancken, CTO at Gradyent: "We had a strong concept, ambitious plans, and were on the point of quickly establishing a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) without hiring an entire team internally. TIS turned out to be the flexible all-round partner we were looking for to help us achieve this MVP.”


The solution

“TIS suggested forming a cross-functional team including a Product Owner, a Solution Architect, and few developers. We first co-created a Proof of Concept (POC) with which we could attract the first investments to fund the development of the MVP. In short iterations, according to the Scrum methodology, the team continued to build and deliver the MVP in time. Together they realized the designs, the (cloud) architecture, the automated deployment process, the environment, the back- and frontend, and the integration with the AI/ML Core."

"We are very proud of the collaboration that we have managed to achieve in a short time and the team dynamics that have emerged within the team. TIS has really shown to have expertise in this area. Integration with our team was very organic as if you were really onboarding your own people,” says Vrancken.


You can easily use the word 'partnership', but in this case, it really applies. To make the right choices you have to be able to rely on the expertise of your partners. Such as the various important technology and architecture choices proposed by TIS and all of which have been successfully realized.
