Many retailers agree artificial intelligence (AI) continues to transform the industry—eighty-six percent are experimenting to forge new paths to growth. But most retailers are pursing AI as one-off initiatives running in functional silos, and not realizing its true potential to impact their top and bottom lines.
In this report, we propose that by starting with a human approach to data and focusing on four critical areas—people, data, platform and governance—retailers can move from experimentation to rapidly driving value at scale with AI, and drive new paths to growth.
