A new way to think about digital transformation: AI 360° model



Business leaders across the world are asking themselves a few questions: How can my company use AI effectively? Are we exploring the right business opportunities?


The journey to digital transformation through AI isn't a clear or straightforward one—the technologies are changing and developing all the time. It can be difficult to know how to structure an approach to AI innovation.


With this in mind, Microsoft has developed the AI 360° Model to help spark these conversations and provide some strategic structure to digital transformation planning and it was designed to help you get the most of AI for your organization, with three primary uses in mind:

  1. As a strategic model for guiding investment in AI.
  2. To support digital transformation planning.
  3. To identify where AI is currently being implemented in your company and areas where it has the potential to be deployed going forward.
