As Artificial Intelligence (AI) becomes widely adopted across industries, the question is no longer whether to adopt AI, but how ready are we to adopt AI? 

In this article, we will explore what an AI readiness assessment is, why it’s important and where Version 1 can help. 

What is an AI Readiness Assessment?

Simply put, an AI Readiness Assessment is a thorough evaluation of an organisation’s readiness and ability to adopt and integrate AI technology.  These assessments usually cover areas of the business such as infrastructure, data, strategy, team knowledge and skills and governance.  Any gaps between the organisation’s goals and current state are highlighted to enable the business to improve in key areas.  A score is often assigned helping the business gauge its position with industry standards. 

Why is an Assessment Important?

Undertaking an assessment is pivotal to gauging your current AI maturity level. It provides a clear and concise picture of where you stand in terms of AI readiness and utilisation. It also highlights where you could be benefiting from AI services, such as advancing your operations, allocating resources, mitigating risks, streamlining processes, and ultimately enhancing business outcomes.
