IDC's Future IT Blueprint: AI and Automation Technology Road Map
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation provides a quick situational overview and actionable guidance to set your business up for success with artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and deep automation by aligning the right business questions in a road map with the right technologies, methods, and data sources.
Artificial intelligence is now table stakes for any organization as the world enters the digital business era. With disruptions, skills shortages, and uncertainty, AI provides unique solutions for organizations to adapt, automate, and rebound. However, IDC research shows there is a gap in the organizational preparedness needed to be successful. IT organizations are at an inflection point in their business collaboration for AI, where creating a high-value three-year AI/automation road map can position them for success.
"The CIO can best approach the myriad of decisions needed by creating a holistic plan that progressively builds," says Alizabeth Calder, adjunct research advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "The AI road map must resonate at the business' interest level, operationalizing automation plans while delivering more broadly based technology and tools foundations."
By building on a clear AI-centric data and architecture view and leveraging COE disciplines for thought leadership and continuous talent development, the CIO can serve a critical strategic role for the organization to take advantage of every dollar spent and every environment touched over time.
