Regardless of the industry, all enterprises are looking for strategies to improve their organizations and stay competitive in the market. However, when it comes to technological innovation, there’s one piece in particular that often blocks the way forward: the human element. While computers may still lack the creativity that sets the human mind apart, artificial intelligence (AI) has become an increasingly important part of modern computing, especially when it comes to processing and managing data.
This has never been more apparent than over the last year and half. In the midst of a global pandemic, enterprises utilizing AI in ways that reduced in-person hours reported that repetitive, day-to-day tasks, especially in the data center, faired the storm far better than other organizations. AI was also a critical component when it came to implementing and managing remote workforces.
A recent survey conducted by IBM shows that as a result of the global pandemic, many enterprises accelerated the adoption of AI in the workplace However, some have yet to implement AI in a significant way, citing barriers to adoption such as a lack of proper knowledge amongst the IT team and difficulties identifying where AI solutions will make the most impact within the digital environment.

Determine Your AI Strategy in 5 Steps
The first step to implementing any new technology is building your strategy. According to Dell, there are five steps that are essential to every artificial intelligence project.
- Define your use case. How are you going to utilize AI? What are your goals? How will you measure success? Are your goals and implementation strategy feasible?
- Assess data. What data will be involved in your AI initiatives? Where does that data live? How will it be accessed and how does it need to be prepared for your project?
- Identify model. Determine which AI model will work best for your use case. Which tools are needed to create, train, and prove this model?
- Optimize software ecosystem. How will you move your model into production? What is your development process going to look like?
- Determine IT environment. Your desired outcomes will determine the type of deployment that will work best, whether that’s private, public, edge, or hybrid cloud. You should also determine your latency and throughput requirements, as well as any other specifications.
By following these five steps, you can be sure that you will be properly prepared when it comes time to actually implement your AI strategy.
