What it means for CEOs

6 key questions that CEOs should ask themselves based on the insights from the research article:

  1. AI integration: How can we leverage AI to enhance our existing products and services, and what new opportunities can we explore to stay competitive?
  2. Data center strategy: With the growing demand for AI and data-intensive applications, how can we optimize our data center operations to meet future needs while managing costs? How do we manage the impact of new and upgraded data centers on our CO2 footprint?
  3. Copilot vs. Chatbot: Are we utilizing the full potential of generative AI and LLMs by integrating copilots for our customers and employees, or are we stuck with non-connected chatbots?
  4. Regulatory compliance: What proactive measures can we take to stay ahead of regulatory changes in critical areas such as AI, data privacy, and environmental standards?
  5. Digital transformation: How can we accelerate our digital transformation efforts to enhance operational efficiency and drive innovation across our business units?
