Leverage AI to add business value

Speaking about the development, Dr. Rohini Srivathsa National Technology Officer, Microsoft India, said, “Today, every company is a software company. They have actionable data residing with them but probably lack the expertise or solutions to use it, and with the ever evolving ecosystem it becomes important for these organisations to leverage AI to add business value to end customers and adopt a work culture that has AI deeply integrated.
