Fast and easy to use:

The assessment only takes 20 minutes per participant and consists of 109 questions across 10 categories to get a comprehensive picture of your AI readiness. To consider various perspectives and provide as much detail as possible, the assessment can be taken by multiple different employees across different teams within the organization.

Customized Recommendations:

Every organization is unique! Upon completing the assessment you will receive a customized report of your AI maturity. Also, you will receive individualized recommendations that will be the baseline for your strategic AI planning.

Your benefits from taking the AI Maturity Assessment

Understand the Status Quo

Understand your degree of AI maturity across different strategic dimensions. Gain insight into various aspects such as the visibility of an overall strategy, availability of skills, IT infrastructure, data management, or the execution of AI projects.

Track Progress

A repeated assessment (e.g. annual) of your AI maturity allows for progress tracking: monitoring of successful initiatives and areas requiring further improvement. This helps you to steer transformation towards becoming a successful AI user.

Derive Development Potentials

Based on your performance across all dimensions, the Maturity Assessment Tool supports you to derive concrete development potentials that help you mature.

Free to Use

Our goal is to lift Europe to the AI age, guide your way towards AI maturity and shape the European AI ecosystem. Thus, we provide the Maturity Assessment Tool for free in Germany and beyond

The AI Journey

Applying AI at scale is a complex endeavor that requires long-term planning, engagement, and can only be reached in a transformative process. appliedAI has mapped out the different stages that organizations go through from first experiments with this new technology to enterprise-wide application of artificial intelligence at scale or even shaping the overall market and AI ecosystem. We call this the AI Journey.
