This is an exciting time for AI. Organizations are looking to advanced analytics technologies such as machine learning (ML) to help them gain insights, build applications, become more competitive, and digitally transform. AI technologies are being used across a wide variety of use cases, including churn analysis, fraud analysis, situational analysis, preventive maintenance, and improved customer understanding. Generative AI is transforming the landscape and providing other opportunities for companies.

Although organizations are excited about AI, are they ready for it? Please join TDWI’s Fern Halper as she presents the results of TDWI’s most recent assessment on AI readiness. Halper will also engage invited subject matter experts from Pecan AI and SAP. Discussion topics will include:

  • What is the level of organizational commitment to AI in today’s business world?
  • How ready is respondents’ data infrastructure for AI?
  • What roles and responsibilities do organizations need to put in place for AI readiness?
