52%

of organizations faced data quality and organization challenges during AI implementation

As organizations adopt AI, gaps in data readiness appear.

While 80% of organizations believed their data was primed for AI application, over half (52%) faced significant challenges with internal data quality and organization during AI implementation. The disconnect between perception and reality may be the result of organizations not fully appreciating the complexity of data management in today's data landscape, nor the skills required to effectively navigate it.

44%

of organizations lack basic information management measures

Inadequate information management strategies may be the root cause of data issues during AI implementation.

While a significant number of organizations (88%) claim to have an information management (IM) strategy in place, study findings suggest that many may not fully understand the essential components of such a strategy; only just over half have basic measures like archiving and retention policies (56%) and lifecycle management solutions (56%) in place. These measures are critical to ensuring the quality of data and the lack of such measures may be what is causing 95% of organizations to experience challenges during AI implementation.
