The Road to FEI24: GenAI: Lessons Learned From Early Adopters

We thank both of you for attending the upcoming FEI 2024. Specifically, you will be in the plenary session, in advance of our generative AI roundtables, where we are going to populate hundreds of use cases into a report and release that afterwards. You’re kicking off that session, Natalia, with some great research.

“Yes. Absolutely,” says Nygren Modjeska. “We just completed a study with the early adopters of generative AI. These are enterprises who’ve adopted generative AI already. So, basically, having finished piloting and scaling up, so we’ve got some really interesting insights in terms of where they’re using generative AI, what challenges they’re experiencing, how much budget they have, which solutions they’re piloting. Are they going with open source? Are they building their own systems?”

With all of that information and research, and all of those insights, Brad, what are you seeing? What are you reading in the tea leaves as we make our way towards FEI in June?

Shimmin says, “As Natalia said, it’s being adopted widely and across a lot of different use cases. And one of the reasons for that is that it’s so easily accessible. As Natalia mentioned, companies are choosing, for example, open source as a primary driver of their investment in GenAI. But it’s a bit of a double-edged sword, and what I’d like to talk about at the show is that can create a skills gap, within an organization or accentuate an existing one, if you will. And so I’d like to offer some advice we have on research that we do ongoing in looking at how companies are hiring, to actually build out the teams that go into creating GenAI.”

Attend FEI 2024

Looking forward to FEI 2024? The conference, which will be held June 10 to 12, will feature a session called “GenAI: Lessons Learned From Early Adopters.” The buzz around generative AI (GenAI) dominated discussions in and out of the boardroom throughout 2023. With mounting pressures to stay ahead of the competition, adopting transformative technologies like GenAI can pave the way for enterprises to stand out, but isn’t without due risk. To kickstart this roundtable, Omdia analysts will unpack the findings from our most comprehensive survey today into early adopters of GenAI, setting the groundwork for group discussions. Join Bradley Shimmin, Chief Analyst, AI Platforms, Analytics and Data Management, Omdia, and Natalia Nygren Modjeska, Research Director, Omdia. Register for FEI 2024 here.

How AI is Redefining Business Strategy

From Michael Bagalman’s “Data Science for Decision Makers” series: Over the last year, AI went from being the next big thing to being the Big Thing. In particular, Large Language Models (LLMs) from companies like OpenAI and Anthropic are capable of generating text just like a person. More to the point, despite not actually “thinking” the way a human does, the powerful LLMs easily available online can easily answer questions.

Discovering the Innovation-Led Growth Journey

Advances in artificial intelligence are powering AI-driven innovation. As machines become smarter and tech developments are rapidly progressing, there is more potential to improve innovation processes and systems, both for the human and AI element. This is leading to more of an emphasis on innovation-led growth, a methodology or framework to collect ideas, engage people, manage ideas, measure impact and automate innovation as a lever for growth, as noted by Ideanote.
