Building Data Foundation For Responsible AI To Drive Business Advantage

Organizations are witnessing the dawn of the data-driven, AI, and regulatory era. The data-driven and digital transformation of organizations is occurring at a rapid pace in order to stay relevant and pave the way to a sustainable future. The consolidation of an organization’s data into a governed, trusted, and well-managed environment that supports both AI development and production workloads is playing a crucial role in this transformation. Organizations want to take advantage of AI, but they need a trusted foundation and access to the data. Our mission is to deliver a trusted, enterprise-wide, data and AI backbone for transforming IBM into an AI Enterprise. This is helping to accelerate the infusion of data and AI in business processes and provide a fertile environment for identifying, building, and deploying responsible generative AI solutions. The resulting benefits to business are reduced time to find and consume data, reduced time to implement initiatives across business units, reduced end-to-end cycle time, and delivering insights that were previously impossible.
