Enterprises of all sizes and across virtually all markets are scrambling to augment their analytics capabilities with artificial intelligence (AI) in the hopes of gaining a competitive advantage in a challenging post-pandemic economy.

Before rushing headlong into the AI tsunami, enterprise executives would be wise to consider how they plan to use it and to what end.
