Industry sources added that GenAI could add $4.4 trillion to global GDP each year. Yet there are challenges in place around enabling companies to get there. The recent Cisco AI Readiness Index, a survey of more than 8,000 private sector, business, and IT leaders across 30 countries, found that 95 percent of respondents have an AI strategy in place or under development. Yet only 14 percent are ready to integrate AI into their businesses.

According to Industrial sources, few transformational technologies have generated the kind of interest as AI and, most recently, Generative AI (GenAI). Organizations around the world are finding exciting new ways to collaborate, manage applications, enhance their digital security, and reimagine customer experiences. However, each of these elevates concerns over moving and accessing data, accuracy, privacy, and the ethical and responsible use of AI.

Reem Asaad, Vice President of Cisco in the Middle East and Africa stated “As we witness the rapid advancements in AI technology, it’s imperative for organizations in the region to embrace all of these innovations strategically. Cisco’s commitment to AI excellence aligns seamlessly with our region’s vision for digital transformation. By leveraging AI-powered solutions, businesses can not only enhance operational efficiency but also foster unprecedented growth opportunities. We are dedicated to supporting our customers in navigating this transformative journey while ensuring the ethical and responsible use of AI.”

Industry sources added further that Cisco already has harnessed AI-powered capabilities across its product and customer service portfolio and is leading innovation for AI-ready infrastructure. At Cisco Live Amsterdam, to further deliver on its strategy to implement and integrate AI that supports customer outcomes, Cisco is announcing:
