"Generative AI is intensifying the need for real-time personalisation and increased business efficiencies, and analytics. IT leaders are racing to fortify their data foundations which include, data quality, stronger security, and AI-readiness to harness the full power of AI," said Arun Kumar Parameswaran, MD - Sales, Salesforce India.
