Warsaw, July 9 2019 – The CIO Club and IT Kontrakt, the group’s content partner, have published a new report, CIO Insight: Why invite AI into your company? based on an online survey among members of the CIO Club. The group brings together more than 400 managers responsible for IT in the largest and most dynamic Polish companies and institutions.
The survey covered 66 people responsible for IT strategy in large enterprises and organizations operating in Poland. Half of the respondents represent companies with more than 2,000 employees, and three out of four work in organizations with more than 500. One-third of the companies whose CIOs took part in the survey have annual revenues of PLN 1 billion or more, and more than 60% are over the PLN 250 million mark. Four out of 10 respondents work in companies headquartered abroad.
Key findings of CIO Insight: Why invite AI into your company?
“The honeymoon is over for AI,” said Jacek Chmiel, co-author of the study and Global Chief of Consulting and Technology at the IT Services Competence Platform. “Companies are increasingly using these solutions, with increasing expectations of real, measurable support for their business processes and a positive, notable effect on results. We’re in a phase where FOMO continues to play a significant role, but a weakening one. Technologies are developing fast; systems for developers are being created; an increasing number of specialists want to learn about the technologies generally known as AI. It’s also increasingly easy to find examples of which business scenarios deliver fast improvements driven by AI, and which ones are and will long remain in the realm of experiment, with a high risk there will be no return on the investment.”
CIO Insight is a series of brief surveys, targeting the top challenges of digital transformation and aimed at key players, providing them and the market with evidence to assess the situation and take strategic decisions. The surveys provide a way to get to know the opinions and experiences of an exceptional group of leaders: CIOs from the CIO Club community.
“The report CIO Insight: Why invite AI into your company? demonstrates the surprisingly high level of openness to AI and AI adoption, so it is a harbinger of a broad breakthrough in AI implementation on the market,” said CIO Club moderator Szymon Augustyniak, editor in chief of CIO Magazyn Dyrektorów IT.
The next CIO Insight publication, prepared in cooperation with CIO Club content partner IT Kontrakt, is due in September.
