APAC Businesses Poorly Equipped to Leverage AI

APAC Businesses Poorly Equipped to Leverage AI

An overwhelming number of IT leaders (86%) in APAC expect AI to increase developer productivity in their organizations over the next three years, and anticipate a huge increase in the large-language models (LLMs) they will use. This is significantly greater than the 69% increase expected globally, according to a new Salesforce Connectivity Benchmark research by Vanson Bourne and Deloitte Digital. In its 10th year, the study interviewed 1,050 IT leaders across the globe this year, with 400 hailing from APAC markets such as Singapore, Australia, Japan, and Hong Kong. Data not harmonized Despite the optimism about the use of generative AI, 69% say that their organization is ill-equipped to harmonize data systems to fully leverage AI. Unsurprisingly, this impedes the transition and further heightening the strain on IT teams. According to the report, integration is a key hurdle to AI innovation. While AI drives efficiency and productivity, it is dependent on integrated data. Yet only an estimated average of 28% of apps within APAC organizations are connected and 82% of IT leaders report that integration challenges are hindering digital transformation within their organizations. For instance, nearly three-quarters (70%) of customer experiences are digital, but only 26% of organizations report […]

Naeblys via Alamy Stock Many people think of digital transformations as being exclusively technological. While that aspect is important, a better description would be a combination of business, cultural, and operating model transformations. Simply digitizing your existing business model doesn’t guarantee results, and outdated culture or operating models can limit the ability to quickly respond to changing client expectations and emerging technologies. I joined Thrivent in 2021 to help shape our digital future, modernize our technology, and deliver great experiences for our clients and financial advisors — and do it faster than ever before. The company already had a strong purpose, trusted relationships, and many technologies when I arrived. The opportunity was to improve experiences, speed up our delivery, and rebuild a strong internal competency in digital, data, and technology after years of under-investment and relying on third parties to do most of the strategic work. It became clear quickly that our transformation was not simply about technology, but a fundamental business change powered by technology, talent, and new ways of working. Since then, we’ve made significant progress. We hired 200 new members for our digital, data, and technology team, focusing on product management, design, and engineering. In 2022, […]

Harnessing Digital Tools, Technology, and Analytics in Healthcare: Insights from U.S. Healthcare Leaders

Harnessing Digital Tools, Technology, and Analytics in Healthcare: Insights from U.S. Healthcare Leaders

With the rapid pace of technological advancement, digital tools, technology, and analytics are redefining the healthcare sector. A recent survey by Huron, including more than 300 U.S. healthcare leaders, illuminates the strategic priorities, outcomes, and challenges shaping their organization’s digital strategies. This transformation is not without its challenges, but it holds the potential to revolutionize patient care as well as healthcare operations. A Focus on Security and Compliance One of the primary findings of Huron’s survey was the emphasis on security and compliance. Over 60% of respondents identified securing and protecting sensitive patient and employee data as their top digital transformation priority. This concern is valid in an era where data breaches are increasingly common and can have severe consequences, including damage to a hospital’s reputation and hefty financial penalties. Thus, healthcare organizations must prioritize robust cybersecurity measures and ensure they comply with regulations, such as HIPAA, to protect sensitive data. Patient-Centric Criteria Beyond security, healthcare leaders are also prioritizing patient-centric measures. The emphasis is on long-term health outcomes, patient satisfaction, and readmission rates. To achieve these goals, healthcare providers are increasingly using technology to streamline processes, reduce errors, and provide better patient care. The right digital tools can […]
