The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty and business volatility and changed the way companies operate permanently.

Many organizations are questioning their previous approach to working with data, analytics and AI in the face of current uncertainties. IDC research shows that over 50% of European organizations have struggled to maintain effective data-driven decision making through the COVID-19 situation.

Yet decision automation and augmentation – through use of AI, ML, advanced analytics and, of course, a plentiful supply of good quality data – are crucial enablers for any enterprise looking to accelerate their recovery and reignite growth. Again, IDC research shows that European enterprises are prioritizing investments in these technologies in 2021 – right across business functions, from finance and HR to supply chain management, customer service, sales, marketing and IT. 

However European organizations’ embrace of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS – and increasing use of external data sources for market signals (including data from mobile and social networks) and IoT devices - mean that source data has never been more challenging to locate and manage. What’s more, senior internal and external stakeholders are starting to demand a greater emphasis on trust and transparency when it comes to data use, AI and automation.

Senior data and insights decision-makers face a complicated web of challenges and opportunities. How can they enable their organizations to make better decisions, faster, and drive better outcomes for customers, employees, partners and suppliers – when the reality is so uncompromising?

The answer is partly about investment in platforms and tools, of course – but it is also about driving projects and programs in more agile, collaborative ways; building new skills and driving cultural change; and reappraising governance.
