Transformation towards an AI-Driven Business

In an era of unprecedented change, businesses are experiencing a profound transformation driven by the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Generative AI technologies. These innovations offer vast opportunities for redefining business models and competitive strategies becoming an AI-fueled™ organization.

However, the journey is full of challenges. Deloitte's 2024 Q2 "State of Generative AI in the Enterprise" report reveals a crucial talent gap, with 37% of leaders acknowledging their companies are underprepared for AI disruptions. Despite this, 75% are planning to revamp their talent strategies within two years to include more training and re-skilling. Trust in AI has notably increased since 2022, with 72% of leaders noting higher organizational trust in AI technologies. Yet, fostering this trust remains a challenge, as only 36% measure employee engagement and trust in AI.

Current reports also highlight several key challenges: 41% of organizations feel only slightly or not at all prepared to address talent concerns related to AI adoption, and 41% feel similarly unprepared for governance and risk concerns. Additionally, managing AI-related risks (50%), proving AI’s business value (37%), and securing executive buy-in (34%) are critical hurdles. The urgency is underscored by the EU AI Act, which imposes stringent requirements on high-risk AI systems, mandating comprehensive risk management and compliance measures. Non-compliance can result in severe penalties, including fines up to 7% of global revenue or 35 million euros. These regulations highlight the importance of robust governance and risk management frameworks to ensure AI systems are trustworthy and align with ethical standards.

Recognizing both the significant potential and the challenges of AI, Deloitte has meticulously developed a holistic AI Business Transformation Framework, known as "The Tube Map." This framework encapsulates years of experience and best practices from various sectors, guiding businesses through their digital metamorphosis. "The Tube Map" stands out for its holistic approach and versatility, allowing for targeted interventions across various dimensions and critical junctures of your business. It provides concrete starting points, empowering you to prioritize and address specific areas of need effectively.
