“It’s obvious when a company is leading its industry or severely lagging, and both scenarios have clearly defined paths. But what about organizations whose AI is somewhere in the middle? What’s holding them back, and how can they become a leader?
“Rapid AI adoption presents a challenge for many IT and business leaders. As competitors with robust AI accelerate their momentum, companies in the middle of the pack risk losing ground. A difficult task for many enterprises is recognizing their place on that spectrum.
