CIOs Need To Take The Lead On AI For Transformational Outcomes Across The Company

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) — a broad set of technology building blocks that help systems sense, think, learn, and act — is fundamentally reshaping business, and enterprises are embracing it at an unprecedented rate. AI is helping deliver revenue growth with better customer experiences, increasing innovation, and improving operational effectiveness.

 

However, most firms are just getting started, and many are pursuing a broad array of uncoordinated AI initiatives. Challenges and risks abound, and IT teams are playing catch-up and are sometimes bypassed altogether.

 

Surveying respondents from large enterprises, across a range of industries, Forrester uncovered some key insights.

  • AI is more than hype
  • Line-of-business teams are taking the lead on AI deployment
  • Eighty-one percent of firms report the need for IT modernization to achieve AI transformation
