This was followed by the BFSI industry with 55% of companies having AI projects in motion. Closer home, a staggering 70% of Indian companies have AI projects underway, exceeding the global average of 49%, with a remarkable 91% of Indian organisations planning to utilise over half their data for AI model training in 2024, signifying an unwavering dedication to data-driven AI advancement.

    While there are proven benefits and willingness to adopt AI, organisations are facing multiple challenges in their AI transformation journeys. Most cited challenges include IT costs, security and the inability to access scattered data in siloed storage infrastructure. Successful AI adoption hinges on a robust intelligent data infrastructure.
