Artificial Intelligence: Hype vs Reality

Our steps to accelerating adoption of AI in the enterprise

The barriers to AI adoption have been found to be three-fold. Firstly, there is a lack of coherent strategy surrounding AI deployments; characterised by a lack of knowledge on where to implement AI and a lack of consideration about how to best accelerate AI projects.

 

Secondly, a significant number of organisations do not have a dedicated person or team driving AI adoption. Not only does this make it difficult to see the tangible results of AI projects, it also leads to the third major barrier which is a lack of AI projects being deployed in organisations at all.

 

On a positive note, the study has highlighted the best approaches from a senior executive perspective; throwing light on those organisations who are leading the way in AI deployment and the strategies they are employing which have led to tangible returns on investment.

 

With this study, we aimed to demystify the hype surrounding scaling AI in the Enterprise. We hope you find the unique insights in the report useful and can use the data to help further your understanding and implement successful AI deployments across your organisation.
