The talent crunch is not an impediment to AI. Businesses are now looking for new ways to accelerate deployments.
- Talent shortages are not an impediment to AI adoption, a Gartner survey of almost 700 business leaders found. More than seven in ten executives reported they currently have or can source the necessary AI talent.
- Companies are deploying AI strategically, to support decision-making and automation across a broad array of business functions, rather than just tactically within tech units. Four in five respondents believe that AI-powered automation can be applied to “any business decision.”
- Demonstrating the effectiveness and the value of AI remains a challenge, despite widespread adoption. Two in five organizations surveyed have thousands of AI models deployed. However, only a little more than half of AI projects make it past the testing phase and into full production, according to the report.
