AI and other Innovative digital solutions are revolutionising the way businesses operate, offering exciting opportunities as well as posing new challenges. Today, open data and emerging technologies – AI, analytics, cloud and more – allow vast data sets to be collected, analysed and acted upon within minutes. However, a number of key questions remain, including how you should best use AI and other technologies to monetise your data, bring new products and services to market, serve your customers better, and generally grow your business.
Digital tools are not in themselves enough to take full advantage of the potential offered by these technological advancements. A fundamental transformation in the way businesses work is essential. Skills, resources, governance, internal capabilities and of course good data, all need to be aligned to achieve business growth.
So, how are businesses faring in this transformation? How successfully are they developing comprehensive data management and digital strategies? How are they ensuring their ecosystems are secure and trustworthy and that privacy and personal data are adequately protected? What innovations are they putting forward, what new ideas are they testing and what projects are they rolling out for their back-offices and for their interfaces with customers?
