How Marketers can start integrating AI in the work?

Written by

By Unni Kurup, Serviceplan Group Middle East

 

AI holds great promise for making marketing more intelligent, efficient, consumer-friendly, and, ultimately, more effective. Perhaps more pointedly, though, AI will soon move from being a “nice-to-have” capability to a “have-to-have.” AI is simply a requirement for making sense of the vast arrays of data — both structured and unstructured — being generated from an explosion of digital touch points to extract actionable insights at speeds no human could ever replicate in order to deliver the personalized service consumers now demand.

While organizations will relook at their structure and job roles to enable successful digital transformation across 2019, other key activity areas will be automation of customer experiences and the supply chain, explains Paul Potgieter, Managing Director - UAE, Dimension Data

 

As organizations get moving on the digital transformation road map, they may abruptly find themselves running more on a bumpy dirt track rather than a Formula One race course with expected high-speed pit-stops. The learnings from this experience are sometimes hard to accept. One of the key reasons for the bumpy track is that existing organizational structures are often incompatible with the requirements of delivering digital experiences to customers. Organizations need to take a deep breath and start relooking at their structure from the point of view of the customer rather than traditional departmental silos and legacy job functions.

Written by: Vincent Petit, Senior Vice President – Global Thought Leadership, Schneider Electric

A few striking examples: the first industrial revolution in the early 19thcentury was propelled by steam and coal. The second industrial revolution at the dawn of the 20th century saw the rise of electricity and oil. On both occasions, major opportunities arose to do things better and faster, and more importantly to do new things that were unimaginable before.

Words by Ujjwal Goel, Managing Director, La Sorogeeka Interiors & Teraciel Group

 

The greatest global cities of the past century were often cited as the largest and centres of the world’s great empires: London, Paris, New York and Tokyo. Today size is not so important. Globalisation is shrinking the world and has broken down to a far greater extent the walls of protectionism and trade barriers making it easier for emerging markets such as Dubai to host leading corporations.
