Few IT leaders need to be reminded of the criticality of investing in AI. But for those who do: AI will create significant levels of competitive advantage for enterprises that adopt it. Inversely, those who do not, risk having their revenues taken from them. According to Forrester, agile AI-enabled companies will take $1.2 trillion away from less informed and empowered peers.
A key milestone for IT departments starting on an AI journey is understanding what AI can—and cannot—accomplish, and where it can be best deployed for their organisations. Many IT teams start this journey on their own, but soon realise that they need outside help.
At that point, an important question arises: Who should we partner with?
IT leaders want to work with partners who can:
- Consult and guide IT teams towards the most optimal business case for AI.
- Prove that they have they data science chops and domain expertise to drive an AI projects.
- Demonstrate that their infrastructure and management stacks are reliable, TCO-friendly, and scalable.
- Handle both Day 1 and Day 2 challenges including smooth installations, and on-going maintenance.
In short, IT teams expect an end-to-end technology partner who has a keen understanding of business, data science, infrastructure, and can inspire, install and service an AI initiative.
Few technology partners can do all of these as well as Lenovo.
Lenovo AI Innovation Centers, for example, guide IT teams through a five-stage process to determine the most optimal business use case for AI and create a POC, giving IT leaders the confidence they seek to embark on an AI project.
Lenovo has the highest share of installations (117) in the top 500 most powerful high-performance computing (HPC) systems globally, according to the June 2018 ranking of the Top500. And it’s also the fastest-growing HPC company in the world.
A lot of this success is built on Lenovo’s focus on creating the world’s most reliable server infrastructure, ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction, and the $1.2 billion investment it has committed to AI and IoT.
Lenovo is also the highest ranked, among its peers, in customer satisfaction, a position it has maintained for eight consecutive editions of TBR’s (Technology Business Research) research in x86-based customer satisfaction and purchase drivers.
The latest TBR report notes that Lenovo received the highest level of brand loyalty as a result of meeting customer expectations for reliability, performance and efficiency.
