Data is at the heart of digital transformation and organizations are looking to find new opportunities to transform customer experiences, boost revenue, and reduce costs. In a new study conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services for Google Cloud, 91% percent of leaders say that democratizing access to data is imperative to business success, and 76% say democratized access to artificial intelligence (AI) is critical. Recent advancements in AI have companies building their generative AI strategy — including how to build generative AI applications to drive business value, customize foundation models to meet their needs, and help ensure control over their data privacy.
