According to a BCG Survey, 89% of C-suite executives rank AI and GenAI in their top three tech priorities for 2024. However, most organizations are yet to realize the benefits of their early investments. With such a rapid change in the GenAI technology landscape and the availability of varied solution options, customers need to find ways to fast-track technology adoption and build relevant capabilities quickly. 


Organizations exploring or adopting Generative AI face a multitude of challenges —

  • How do we support data platform requirements for GenAI enterprise use cases while ensuring performance, reliability, and cost optimization?
  • How can we involve SMEs and specialists as part of transactional and analytical workflows to provide additional context?
  • How can we create a consolidated data hub to ingest, transform, and integrate data feeds from multi-modal sources?
  • How can data be made discoverable and fit for training?
  • How can the accuracy, stability, and transparency of model outputs be enhanced?
  • How can we strengthen data security controls and data protection?


Data strategy: Your differentiator

A comprehensive Generative AI (GenAI) data strategy and an intelligent data foundation layer can accelerate the adoption of GenAI capabilities. There are several modalities such as text, code, audio, image, video and 3D/specialized data types in which we receive data.

GenAI can guide business users to key insights in consumer behaviors by enabling them to combine data from various sources through natural language queries and summarizing issues to action without the help of dedicated analysts.

Foundational models, which are the bedrock of GenAI applications, can be customized and finetuned with your organization’s proprietary data.

This can deliver a differentiated experience when compared to out of the box foundational models.

For example, a large grocery chain that tracks shopper preferences can customize a foundational model to produce a better recommendation engine that is highly differentiated from its competitors’ offerings. In the case of a healthcare provider, finetuning a foundational model with the enterprise’s multi-modal data can improve decision-making for a caregiver.

Building such applications that are unique to your business needs requires the usage of your organization’s strategic data assets. Hence it is critical to secure, govern, and monitor data assets while generating tangible business value.
