Artificial intelligence (AI) is moving beyond the hype cycle, as more and more organizations seek to adopt AI-related technologies.

This report explores how they are approaching strategic imperatives, defining value drivers, building foundational capabilities and improving access to talent — as well as how their efforts could drive exponential competitive advantage.
