Yoav Kutner, CEO of Oro, Inc. authored a feature article for Forbes Magazine; the article titled, AI In B2B eCommerce: The Challenges and Alternatives, may be read here.
Kutner sees the interest in artificial intelligence (AI) is growing, and the technology is rapidly improving. AI is fueling search engines, virtual assistants, and e-commerce product recommendations. For B2B e-commerce businesses, AI can be a tool for greater personalization, improved decision-making ability and gaining a competitive advantage.
According to Kutner, AI in B2B e-commerce has its challenges, and more cost-effective alternatives often exist. AI applies a model or algorithm to process large amounts of data and predict future outcomes. While AI seems wicked smart, humans must still design, customize and test it to perform desired functions. AI does not work in isolation but within the confines of existing tools, platforms, and processes.
Deploying AI as a business solution is a costly, complex, and uncertain endeavor. Many AI initiatives start strong and then slowly fade away. Leaders and AI advocates fail to identify valid use cases, lack necessary data, do not have the right people, or face a combination of these challenges.
Kutner is a proud member of the Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only organization for senior-level technology executives. Members are respected tech leaders and executives — CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, and others — selected for the council based on their deep knowledge and diverse experience in the industry.
