[For Consultants and IT Services Professionals] Getting Started with AI: Proven Best Practices of Adoption
Artificial intelligence adoption is challenging. When we see our clients applying AI in an existing business, whether for AI strategy development or vendor selection, we start looking at the beginning of the process. While there is no guarantee for AI ROI, most of the wasted money on failed AI projects can be traced back to misunderstanding AI's true capabilities and potential long-term role in their organization's mission. This report is intended to prepare leaders and teams to adopt AI successfully and to drive company strategy forward through these challenges and more.
Developing an AI product is difficult. Not only does one have to struggle with the issues of integrating and using AI, but you have to do so in a way that satisfies customers. Working with AI in business comes with its own challenges, such as building an accessible data stack and a reliable data science team. At Emerj, we’ve worked with dozens of AI startups and established companies working on AI projects. We have interviewed hundreds of AI companies about what they learned during their time in development. In this guide, we break down the critical frameworks that we use to help companies develop AI products that succeed in the market. You can reliably use these frameworks to develop a winning long-term marketing strategy along with near-term development goals to help you get there.
Artificial intelligence is transforming industries, and it is providing a competitive advantage to early adopters. But the headlines hide the fact that success isn’t the norm. While some companies are adopting artificial intelligence to great advantage - most companies are spinning their wheels with fruitless AI projects that go nowhere. This compact 25-page report is broken down into five key chapters: 1. Critical Executive Expectations in AI Adoption - Overcome the early hurdles to AI adoption by understanding how to assess costs and resources, and grounding your project in the right expectations of an AI project’s requirements. 2. Short-Term and Long-Term AI Investment - How to lock in the near-term benefits of AI by positioning your firm or department to win the long term, and handle unrealistic ROI-based objections or unrealistic ROI expectations. 3. AI Adoption Motives - Discover the three reasons for AI adoption that lead to successful outcomes and more likely ROI, and the two mistaken AI adoption motives that almost inevitably lead to wasted money, setbacks, and embarrassment. 4. Timing and Purchasing of AI - Learn when to adopt artificial intelligence, what to do directly before beginning an AI initiative, and a simple, powerful framework for build vs buy decision-making. 5. The Three Phases of AI Adoption - Discover the crucial importance of a post-pilot “incubation” phase for AI projects, and critical insights to turn a successful AI proof of concept (PoC) into a truly functional business solution - without making the costly errors that stop many PoCs cold.
The biggest problem facing insurance firms today is a one-word answer: fraud. Yet despite widespread data showing in detail the massive problem that is insurance fraud, many remain perhaps willingly ignorant as to the ubiquitousness of the problem. Insurance carriers don’t want to pay millions in fraudulent claims, but not at the risk of slowing down and upsetting already-on-edge claimants. In this white paper, we will take a closer look at two use cases from Shift Technology that demonstrate the promise of AI in the insurance space: detecting network fraud and integrating external data sources into fraud detection workflows.
Five years ago, almost all enterprise firms treated AI initiatives like IT projects, focused on near-term ROI without understanding the challenges of working with data or maintaining a deployed AI system. Today, many more enterprise leaders take AI maturity into account throughout their decision-making processes and see AI as a capability to build, not just a supporting factor in winning market strategy. In this service operations-focused white paper, we work with experts to develop a roadmap approach that industry enterprises can adopt to bring about the internal shifts necessary to bring AI to life at their organizations.
Technology and innovation — and all the wonders and disruptions they bring — surround us every day. Service operations leaders navigate digital and physical worlds increasingly filled with the solutions that will help them plot their course into an AI future. Smart, connected products have the potential to provide significant market advantages, but new possibilities require new strategies from leadership. A new report, co-created by Emerj and PTC, sets out a roadmap approach that industry enterprises can adopt to bring about the transformation that has to happen within organizations in order to bring AI to life.
Companies invest in something if they think it generates value, and AI development is no different in this regard. Myriad sources tell us that AI adoption is becoming more ubiquitous, which would seem to indicate that the people running these companies understand the business value and ROI. This new report, co-created by Emerj and Clickworker, will examine two critical elements of good data — quality and diversity — via two of Clickworker’s typical use cases: facial recognition and voice recognition.

The manufacturing industry has long relied on telemetry data to measure, evaluate, and draw conclusions about the way they produce goods. AI and machine learning algorithms promise to introduce profound changes to what we can do with data collected from a large number of real-time telemetry sensors, video streams, and audio streams. This new PDF report, co-created by Emerj and MayaHTT, explores the different ways AI leverages the new capabilities in computer vision and deep learning, to take full advantage of rising digital technologies in continuous manufacturing processes.
Increasingly, technology and business leaders look to project managers to make the execution — and success — of their AI projects more predictable. Executives and decision-makers want AI projects to mature so they are more like the software development projects that have been with us for a generation. Yet any AI project manager hoping to deliver on those expectations knows that success in AI projects requires end-to-end thinking rarely found in leadership today. In turn, educating executives that there is no magical black box with AI becomes mission-critical so that the development and execution of the project can satisfy the right expectations. A new guide from Daitan and Emerj Research walks enterprise executives through these rigorous and demanding challenges of data iteration and data cleansing in ways that lead to successful project outcomes.
Until now, reporting has required hours of manual effort across finance departments and companies. Deloitte's Baromètre Digital Finance 2021 report identified the automation of reporting as a crucial solution in solving three of these principal challenges facing finance and accounting groups in the next 12-18 months. To confront these challenges thrust upon today's business leaders, corporate finance must accelerate its reporting, analysis, and decision-making processes, identify root causes in real time, and share those insights as they develop. The COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated these trends and the need for new, faster, and better technologies that will get and keep you ahead of the competition. Download this guide now and find out how enterprise organizations have automated their financial reports and how Finance managers are measuring their ROI so that you, too, can accelerate your organization.
Pharma walks a hard road getting life-saving drugs to market. That’s why speed becomes so crucial in the new drug application approval process, where companies face many challenges, such as the race to market, competition and maintaining compliance with stringent internal and external regulatory requirements. The importance of speeding the drug application process became obvious during the COVID-19 pandemic as daily case counts and deaths surged worldwide. How does pharma respond to that challenge effectively and ethically? A new report from Yseop and Emerj Research shows how natural language generation technologies bring automated intelligence to the clinical study reporting process. With widespread integration, pharmaceutical companies can get drugs to regulators and the market faster. This helps both those who need the drugs and those who need the ROI to continue producing them.
Traditional data mining tools leverage keywords to extract information and are incapable of reading text or understanding language like humans. In the context of the deep scientific content of drug discovery, keywords can miss critical information just because it fails to line up with a user query. Whether the focus is on drug discovery, the design of clinical trials, or the tracking of adverse effects in the drug safety process, AI stands ready as a worthwhile partner to the industry’s subject matter experts. This new report offers direct insight into how AI technologies are helping life sciences companies scale key business processes, overcome operational challenges, and realize new opportunities.
