Five questions CIOs must consider for generative AI adoption

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the role of the chief information officer (CIO) has transformed into that of a strategic visionary, steering organizations toward innovative technologies that can provide a competitive edge. Generative artificial intelligence (AI), a groundbreaking technology that has made remarkable strides in recent years, is poised to revolutionize how businesses operate, interact, and innovate.

However, early results have not been good. Studies of early adopters show only 13% to 20% of AI projects make it into production and most of those (78%) barely made back the initial investment. In addition, there have been a few highly publicized examples of AI missteps. This has left many CIOs struggling to understand how—or even if—to adopt generative AI.

In talking with many of our clients’ CIOs, we’ve seen this struggle manifests itself in five key questions:

  1. Is it ready to adopt?

  2. Is it safe?

  3. What should I use it for?

  4. How do I get started?

  5. What else do I need to put in place for it to be successful?

In this whitepaper, we examine each question and provide recommendations on how CIOs can move forward on their generative AI journey.
