Picking the Right Partner is Key to Unlocking the Value of Industrial AI

Just make sure you see one with domain expertise...

March 15, 2021

According to a recent study, 84% of C-suite executives believe they must leverage AI to achieve their growth objectives. What’s more, 76% of industrial organizations’ executives acknowledge they struggle to scale their AI strategy across the enterprise.  With a growing need for capital-intensive industries to quickly implement and take advantage of AI, new approaches are needed. However, all AI is not created equal. Having the right AI, developed and implemented for your unique challenges makes all the difference for the success of your implementation.

Lacking a complete solution, some vendors are attempting to cobble together AI, software, and domain knowledge from three or more disparate providers to meet the market needs. Those efforts are falling short for customers, yielding lengthy projects that take an army of data scientists to implement and provide little added value than piping together generic AI processes. Success requires a different approach. This begs the question: Why “see three” when you can “see one?”
