    Recorded - available as on demand webcast

    Join authors and AI experts Seth Earley and Tom Davenport for a discussion of how to get AI to succeed -- and be effective -- in your organization. These are challenging times -- we'll address how the global pandemic is changing corporate priorities and what will become of AI projects.

    We'll cover topics including these:

    • What is the strategic importance of AI to large companies?
    • How can you balance between simple pilot projects and "moonshot" AI projects that propose to create overarching change?
    • What should companies do to prepare their data and infrastructure to make AI successful?
    • Will the global pandemic set AI priorities back, or is this a time to use AI to leap ahead?
    • How can you get buy-in for successful AI projects?

    We'll review research including surveys on corporate attitudes toward cognitive projects.

    In this practical session, Earley and Davenport will outline key take-aways from their books THE AI-POWERED ENTERPRISE and THE AI ADVANTAGE, respectively, and help attendees decide how to marshall limited resources to achieve tangible outcomes for AI projects.

    [RECORDED] Product Data Mastery - Reducing Returns to Increase Margin Through Better Product Data

    Improving product data quality will inevitably increase your sales. However, there are other benefits (beyond improved revenue) from investing in product data to sustain your margins while lowering costs. One poorly understood benefit of having complete, accurate, consistent product data is the reduction in costs of product returns. Managing logistics and resources needed to process returns, as well as the reduction in margins based on the costs of re-packaging or disposing of returned products, are getting more attention and analysis than in previous years. This is a B2C and a B2B issue, and keeping more of your already-sold product in your customer’s hands will lower costs and increase margins at a fraction of the cost of building new market share. This webinar will discuss how EIS can assist in all aspects of product data including increasing revenue and reducing the costs of returns. We will discuss how to frame the data problems and solutions tied to product returns, and ways to implement scalable and durable changes to improve margins and increase revenue.
