AI adoption is growing in the telecoms space, with over half (58%) of telecom buyers across the UK, US and Europe planning to build AI capabilities into their products, according to new research released today by Cavell.
An annual survey since its inception in 2019, the Telecoms Buyer Report polls business owners, C-Level executives and senior managers responsible for purchasing telecoms services at companies of all sizes across the UK, US and Central Europe.
The 2023 report also reveals that 70% of companies have or are planning to adopt a policy on AI usage, while 44% of respondents reported that their company has already adopted a solution that uses AI or is described as âAI-enabledâ.
Interestingly, the C-suite is playing a greater role in deciding on telecoms services, with a third (33%) of companies saying that their CEO/President has input into the process. Meanwhile, one in five (20%) respondents said they are now consulting their entire employee base on telecoms decisions.
Finbarr Begley, Senior Analyst at Cavell, commented: âAI in communications is not a future technology anymore, it is here. Its impact is already being seen and it is finding its way into every sort of solutio
