Every organization that doesn’t want to be left behind is investing in artificial intelligence today, but few are doing it thoughtfully, IDC reports.
Digital transformation is slowly becoming such a mainstream phenomenon in the business world that Accenture is already heralding the dawn of the post-digital era. It’s no wonder, then, that implementing AI was high on the list of both important and urgent things, making this task the highest priority.
As IDC reports in its latest study “Artificial Intelligence Global Adoption Trends & Strategies”, this phenomenon carries certain risks. What? Organizations will need to develop an effective AI strategy aligned with business goals and innovative business models in order to be able to apply it effectively. The problem is that so far only one in four companies does.
– The implementation of artificial intelligence, like any innovative technology, must be preceded by a process analysis and an assessment of whether AI will improve something in a given company. The implementation process itself should be done in short steps. We have a new AI function, we implement it, observe it, collect data, evaluate if it works and decide what to do next. Everything should be overseen by a dedicated team of AI and business experts. The organization can build it on its own or trust external experts – comments Stanisław Bochnak, Chief Business Strategist at VMware Polska.
