Deloitte Strategy & Analytics AI and Data Strategy Manager in Charlotte, North Carolina
Several disruptive forces are creating opportunities and mandates to leverage AI for breakthrough levels of business performance and risk mitigation. Shifting customer preferences (e.g. personalization and localization), advancements in science & technology (e.g. new data sources and inexpensive big data), and market factors (e.g. blurred industry boundaries) are pressuring companies to rethink the value of AI and data.
Monitor Deloitte's AI and Data Strategy market offering helps our clients navigate these disruptive forces to deliver shareholder value. We imagine how AI will drive the most important actions and decisions a company must make to win, working directly with C-suite leaders to craft their AI strategy. We then work with client leaders to design and deliver the AI products, operating model, and capabilities required to deliver on their strategy.
