Strategy & Transformation

AI only creates value at a high level of maturity, but most companies are just starting their journey.

Strategy & transformation

AI is a disruptive technology that affects all companies, regardless of their industry or size. Entire business sectors are already being extensively transformed by AI. Many companies have begun investing in data and AI initiatives, but few are realizing significant business value. Often, AI initiatives are not aligned with the company's overall strategy and it remains unclear how applying AI will add business value. There is a widespread lack of knowledge about what foundations are required for implementation and the order in which challenges should be addressed.
