As AI adoption rapidly increases, it’s critical that AI ethics progress from abstract theories to concrete practices. Oxford Economics worked with the IBM Institute for Business Value to survey 1,250 global executives in late 2018. Representing 20 industries and over 26 countries on 6 continents.
Rapid and disruptive innovations, tech-driven processes and new technologies such as artificial intelligence are transforming the fast-changing environment of technology and impacting business processes and the ongoing existence of organisations of all sizes and industries.
Our work is based on quantitative surveys of high-level executives, impacted companies, and industry executives, as well as in-depth qualitative interviews with experts in the field.
The research has covered topics including the application of tech-driven operational intelligence, the priorities, challenges, and digital maturity for small and midsize organisations, the role of IT in preparing organizations for growth, the shift to artificial intelligence and automation as well as artificial intelligence ethics.
Examples of our work in the technology sector include:
2020 has been a year of trend acceleration. To understand progress toward AI implementation in North America, Oxford Economics and NTT DATA surveyed 1,000 executive and non-executive employees across industry sectors about their current and planned tactics for organizational transformation.
Oxford Economics and SAP surveyed 2,000 executives from small and midsize organisations about their priorities, challenges, and digital maturity. Transforming operations around new technologies and human experiences will be critical to resilience and growth in the years ahead.
Research from Accenture and Oxford Economics shows that applying tech-driven operational intelligence can improve business performance. To understand the connection between business operations maturity and performance, we surveyed more than 1,100 C-suite and VP-level executives across 11 countries and 13 industries.
