Embracing AI for Competitive Advantage - Insights from Westpac's Latest Report

Developing an AI strategy, ensuring proper data governance, and reskilling workers are key steps towards successful AI integration.

The recent article by Lana Andelane and Westpac NZ's report highlight the significant impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the business landscape in 2024. The report underscores that businesses adopting AI are more likely to experience increased productivity and profitability. It emphasises AI's role in enhancing customer focus, augmenting jobs, and improving adaptability. However, challenges remain, particularly for smaller NZ businesses, with concerns about integration difficulties and potential job losses.
