Because enterprise AI is still in its infancy, we are focused on the technology itself more than the successful implementation, integration, and iteration in the enterprise. Having spent the last three years working with Global 200 customers to get AI systems into production, Jana Eggers can tell you that the technology is (finally) ready—but the organization is not. Jana discusses the top five reasons orgs struggle—data silos, the tech-business gap, driving innovation, resistance to change, and the hype-reality gap—and shares ideas on how to overcome them.
Jana Eggers is a tech executive focused on products and the messages surrounding them. Jana has started and grown SMBs and led large organizations within enterprises.
