So, I was just reading about this panel at last week’s Canalys APAC Forum in Bangkok and they were saying that businesses are all gung-ho about adopting AI, but they’re like totally clueless on what to actually do with it. It’s like, they’re overwhelmed with all this info on AI, and can’t wrap their heads around how to actually use it. It’s a classic case of AI enthusiasm getting crushed by the harsh reality of not knowing how to put it into action.
So there’s this dude, Sunil Golani from distributor TD Synnex, and he’s like, “Yeah, people are getting more optimistic about using AI but when you actually talk to them, it’s like they’re not ready at all.” It’s like they can see the end goal of using AI to boost their productivity, but just don’t know how to get there.
And then there’s Craig Musker, director of strategy and delivery at Tribe in New Zealand, and he’s all like, “Bro, my customers are all over the place with AI. Some of them just use it for basic stuff like managing photos and emails, while others want to create their own language models.” It’s like, they’re all over the map with it.
And the thing is, all this new AI stuff is moving so fast that what you learn today might be totally outdated by next quarter, you know? It’s like, businesses are just trying to solve their problems, but with AI being so new and evolving, how are they supposed to know what they want? It’s kind of like trying to hit a moving target, man. It’s wild.
So, my man Sidharth Joshi, the dude from Dell, is like, “Focus on ROI and incremental value changes, instead of getting lost in the excitement of AI.” And you know what? He’s totally right. Just take it slow, people. Don’t get too caught up in the hype. All this AI stuff is going to keep evolving, so just relax and take it one step at a time.
