The Intelligent Enterprise is a journey, not a destination.
As technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, businesses are facing the challenge of adapting to this new reality. The term "Intelligent Enterprise" has emerged to describe organisations that are leveraging data and advanced technologies to gain a competitive edge and achieve sustainable growth. 


On Thursday, 23rd November 2023, CIONET Italia gathered industry leaders and protagonists together with esteemed speakers at the Community Event at the historical location of Circolo della Stampa in Turin.
During this session we explored key insights from industry experts on the concept of the Intelligent Enterprise and its implications for businesses of all sizes. The allure of these discussions stemmed from the diverse representation across various sectors by each speaker. Moderated by Davide Gindro, Group CIO of Sol Group, these engaging conversations kept the audience enthralled and highly participative throughout the Q&A sessions, offering a myriad of distinct perspectives on the topic.

Embracing Digital Transformation.

In today's data-driven world, businesses must embrace digital transformation to remain competitive. According to Dario Castello, Chief Digital Officer & Member of BoD at Robomagister with a vast experience in  multinationals, "The explosion of AI with genAI opens spaces for startups for rapid adoption of technology applied to new products and not just processes." Startups are often at the forefront of innovation, and their ability to quickly adapt to new technologies is a key advantage. However, traditional companies face more constraints and are therefore slower to adopt new technologies.


Data as a Guiding Force.

Data is at the heart of the Intelligent Enterprise. As Doris Messina, a Co-Founder and CEO of Tot, emphasises, "Data must heavily guide us... it's essential to have a vision as entrepreneurs but not be overly driven by instinct and opinions." Startups, by their very nature, are explorers, and data is crucial for validating their business models and making informed decisions.

Google's Role in the Intelligent Enterprise.

Google Cloud is playing a leading role in helping businesses become Intelligent Enterprises. Luca Politi, an Account Executive at Google Cloud, highlights the company's focus on two main fronts: Workspace for individual productivity and GCP for generative AI. Workspace tools, such as DuetAI, are designed to enhance employee collaboration and efficiency. GCP, on the other hand, provides businesses with the tools and infrastructure they need to develop and deploy AI applications.

Data-Driven Insights for Intelligent Enterprises.

Luca Guerra, Group CIO at Prima Industrie, emphasises the importance of data-driven insights for the Intelligent Enterprise. Data analytics can help businesses understand their customers, optimise their operations, and make better decisions. However, he also acknowledges the challenges of implementing data-driven innovation within organisations.

The Regulatory Landscape of Trusted AI.

Vahid Sadr, AI Practice Lead at EY, discusses the evolving regulatory landscape of Trusted AI, particularly in the European Union. The EU is developing a framework to ensure that AI solutions are reliable, transparent, and accountable. This framework will have a significant impact on the adoption of AI solutions in the future. 

Key Takeaways for Businesses:

The insights from these industry experts provide valuable takeaways for businesses seeking to become Intelligent Enterprises:

  • Embrace data as a guiding force. Data is essential for making informed decisions and driving business growth.
  • Leverage advanced technologies. AI, machine learning, and other advanced technologies can provide businesses with a competitive edge.
  • Develop a data strategy. A well-defined data strategy will help businesses maximise the value of their data assets.
  • Stay up-to-date on regulatory developments. The regulatory landscape of AI is evolving rapidly, and businesses need to be aware of the latest changes.

By adopting these principles, businesses can position themselves for success in the data-driven future.

Our sincere gratitude extends to Davide Gindro, Doris Messina, Dario Catello, Luca Politi, Luca Guerra, Vahid Sadr and all participating Digital Leaders for their invaluable insights at this event!
