With the advent of the leap in Digital technologies, every business should become a software-driven organisation. The dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is catapulting organisations – most already far lagging in their digital transformation efforts – into a world that most business leaders are not prepared for. Studies show that only 8% of organisations globally use and organize for AI and advanced analytics, engaging in core practices that support widespread adoption. Many firms run only isolated and largely impromptu AI initiatives, targeted at single business processes.
The idea around adopting Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in an organization is not primarily a technology conversation. It is foremost a business initiative, with commercial goals in mind, addressing specific challenges. It is also largely a cultural and organisational design challenge.
