Most of this year, enterprises have been reviewing the lessons learned in the past few years from their Enterprise AI initiatives, i.e., what has worked, what hasn’t, and how to move forward to modernize their infrastructures and take full advantage of AI. According to Garner’s recent research report, from 2018 to 2020, only around 47% of projects in enterprise organizations are in production. The rest are stuck in the pre-production phases.

Erick Brethenouxc introduced Gartner’s Enterprise AI framework, and the panelists highlighted key challenges that Enterprises are facing.
