Creating a Solid Foundation to Cultivate AI

According to Gartner, generative AI like ChatGPT, promises to accelerate digital product delivery and improve operational efficiency more than any technology of the last 10 years. But to capitalize on this effort, organizations must have the proper foundation in place. Not only should data and analytics leaders be focused on the people, process and technology aspect of data governance but also on risk, security, transparency and ethics.

               • Identifying challenges and solutions when governing AI
