AMD: IT leaders optimistic about AI, ramping up investments

IT leaders optimistic about ways AI will transform their business and are ramping up investments, AMD study finds

Three-quarters of IT leaders say they are optimistic about the future potential benefits of AI, with investments on the increase, according to a recently-published survey of global IT leaders by AMD.

The survey found that three in four IT leaders are optimistic about the potential benefits of AI, ranging from increased employee efficiency to automated cybersecurity solutions, and more than two in three are increasing investments in AI technologies. However, while AI presents clear opportunities for organisations to become more productive, efficient, and secure, IT leaders expressed uncertainty on their AI adoption timeliness due to their lack of implementation roadmaps and the overall readiness of their existing hardware and technology stack.  

Despite some hesitations around security and a perception that training the workforce would be burdensome, it became clear that organisations that have already implemented AI solutions are seeing a positive impact and organisations that delay risk being left behind. Of the organisations prioritising AI deployments, 90% report already seeing increased workplace efficiency. 

The future of AI-powered computing for the enterprise 

To ensure IT leaders have the best computing platform as they implement AI solutions, AMD is focused on developing cutting-edge solutions with AI capabilities across its product portfolio.   

This year, the company launched the first AMD Ryzen™ 7040 Series processors with select models featuring a Ryzen™ AI Engine with support for Windows Studio Effects, along with Ryzen AI developer tools – delivering unique experiences not currently available on other x86 processorsii and paving the way for greater AI capabilities directly on laptops.   

For businesses that also want to run AI workloads in their on-premise data centers, having up-to-date infrastructure is critical. By upgrading a data centre to modern AMD EPYC™ processors, AMD says customers could reduce the number of racks needed in their existing infrastructure by up to 70%.

“There is a benefit to being an early AI adopter,” said Matthew Unangst, senior director, commercial client and workstation, AMD. “IT leaders are seeing the benefits of AI-enabled solutions, but their enterprises need to outline a more focused plan for implementation or risk falling behind. Open software ecosystems, with high-performance hardware, are essential, and AMD believes in a multi-faceted approach of leveraging AI IP across our full portfolio of products to the benefit of our partners and customers.”  

AMD commissioned the survey of 2,500 IT leaders across the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Japan to understand how AI technologies are re-shaping the workplace, how IT leaders are planning their AI technology and related Client hardware roadmaps, and what their biggest challenges are for adoption.
