Mastering Technology Leadership in the Age of AI

Charting your organization's path through the age of AI, keeping in mind that we are only just now in the starting blocks, will require a focus on four pillars: productivity, value creation, innovation and responsibility. Driven by GenAI, the initial experimentation and use cases center around productivity but there will be a swift move towards a focus on growth and broader AI as organizations chart their Digital Future. Governance by Design is a must when organizations embark on their AI path to impact, making sure that employees have access to training programs, existing governance systems are extended to cover AI, developers are guided by a Responsible AI decision framework, monitoring and auditing systems are in place and it is very clear, what LLMs were trained on. 


Technology and technology leadership will be at the center of this journey, much as we have seen since the beginning of digital transformation. Based on a recent EMEA CIO Quick Poll, two-thirds of CIOs in EMEA are expecting budgets to increase and close to 40% are seeing increases of more than 10%. The focus: AI and data as well as security, trust and compliance. C-Suite leaders are enthusiastic, too, with almost two-thirds seeing it as a key investment priority (IDC C-Suite Survey).  

Coordinating tech and AI investments to drive return as part of a Responsible AI strategy will decide many fates in the Digital Business era. From connecting the C-Suite to driving the overarching strategy and business use cases to deciding which workloads work best on-prem/public cloud/hybrid and managing a potential AI sprawl, there will be an avalanche of decision points. Thus, mastering technology leadership is critical in this next phase as AI becomes pervasive in the organization.
