A recent survey of finance professionals shows that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is on everyone’s mind. While AI gets the headlines here and elsewhere in the world, the survey addresses both big data and AI. These days, most companies believe they are getting added value from their data and AI initiatives- meaning they are taking advantage of advanced analytics. However, the survey also showed that while analytics are being utilized, there still isn’t an enterprise data strategy in place. This continuing rise in the importance and challenges of big data is one of the most important features of contemporary economy and society.
