Digital Transformation and Artificial Intelligence – Are we there yet?
It’s about this time of year, and in this kind of weather, you hear that call from the back of the car ‘are we there yet?’ – but that was back in more normal times, things have changed now.
The big professional services companies are saying, we have seen years worth of digital transformation happen in the last few months.
This tweet poll from Brian Solis shows the driver for most transformation within organisations at the moment. The Coronavirus.
But surely when it comes to digital transformation, we must all be there now?
Sadly not, the pandemic was a wake-up call for many organisations who were holding out to see if they really needed to adopt digital, or even worse, the dreaded AI!
Some were already on the journey and adapted to the ‘new normal’ and home working quickly, and others have struggled, but know to continue to exist it is now an imperative.
Over the last few months technology has proved itself, whether through back to back Zoom and Teams video calls, through rapid automation of many tasks that were human based before they were furloughed, or supporting the healthcare system solving logistical challenges or helping with potential solutions for the Coronavirus.
