Data Modernization: Breaking the AI Vicious Cycle for Superior Decision-making


Amid the increasingly complex business, economic and social environment of the post-pandemic world, companies need even greater intelligence to make fast, optimal decisions. For many companies, that means finding the relevant data – whether on-site or through a third-party – amid the fast-growing data volumes generated by our hyper-digitized economy and using it as a fuel for artificial intelligence (AI), a key ally in sound decision-making.

Most businesses already understand this. In partnership with Cognizant, we surveyed 1,000 senior executives from companies of different sizes across a range of industries in the US. Our research reveals that the majority of respondents (57%) believe the main benefits of AI are improved planning and decision-making, above even AI’s ability to support faster innovation and higher profitability.
