Research conducted by IDG for Freshworks shows that 61% of IT managers have already deployed artificial intelligence -AI- at some level and 32% are exploring the possibilities.
“The data proves what Freshworks has seen for years with its customers: They expect AI to be deeply integrated into ITSM tools instead of being an add-on that takes extra effort to delight their employees. As the survey shows, AI users want greater automation, reduced complexity, and a simplified approach with modern IT tools that appeal to businesses of all sizes. futuristic concept, it’s a must-have,” explains Prakash Ramamurthy, Product Manager at Freshworks.
When asked what they wanted to get out of implementing AI, respondents cited speed of implementation (40%), integration with existing systems (40%), the overall cost of implementation (38%) and training AI robots to provide the most accurate answer (39%).
Respondents also want easy deployment: 82% strongly or almost agree with the following statement: “We need a fast, preformed and easy to deploy AI solution to meet our needs” . And 85% agree with the following statement: “The more intuitive an AI application, the more likely it is to be accepted and deployed.”
