AI implementations require professional services support to reach enterprise scale

According to a new report from Tractica, while organizations are clearly recognizing the value associated with incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) into their business processes, they are also encountering a number of challenges with integrating this new intelligence into operational processes, the company said.

Taking AI beyond the proof-of-concept phase to the enterprise scale will require a significant level of professional services to support large implementations, with key service categories including application integration, support and maintenance, training, customization, and installation.

Tractica forecasts that the worldwide market for AI services will grow from USD 10.1 billion in 2017 to USD 188.3 billion by 2025. The market intelligence firm anticipates that the industry sectors using the highest levels of professional services to support AI deployments will include business services, consumer, healthcare, advertising, and automotive.
