SnapLogic report reveals who leads the way on readiness to embrace AI
- New research from SnapLogic reveals 72% of Australian workers want to use AI in the workplace but highlight skill and education gaps
New research published today by SnapLogic, a leader in intelligent integration and enterprise automation, reveals attitudes towards AI in the workplace are warming up: with almost two-thirds of workers reporting that they like the idea of using AI in their role, either currently or in the future.
According to SnapLogic’s survey of nearly 1,000 mid-senior management workers within large enterprises across the UK, US, and Australia, all respondents showed a good grasp of AI’s benefits: over half (54%) said they thought using AI would save them time; 46% said it would improve their productivity, and 37% said it would reduce risk and errors in their work.
When it comes to welcoming the idea of using AI in their role, either currently or in the future, Australians lead the way at 72%, compared to an average of 66%, with the UK respondents the least inclined at 61%.
However, respondents believe skills are an issue, with one-third (34%) of respondents claiming there are very few people within their organization with the skills required to implement and use AI. 39% said it would be hard to get everyone in their organization to fully adopt AI; while 19% were worried that they would not be able to work out how to use AI properly.
Respondents also revealed the main factors that would make them more likely to use AI in their role, either now or in the future: 42% wanted a better understanding of how AI would specifically benefit them in their role, while 36% wanted a safety net to reduce the risk that they would make mistakes.
Jeremiah Stone, CTO of SnapLogic, said, “The current business landscape is unpredictable, and that puts pressure on budgets and resources – and ultimately, on employees. Using AI to automate processes and improve productivity relieves this pressure. It’s very encouraging to hear workers say they understand how AI can benefit them in their own role, as enterprises need employee buy-in if they want to make an AI rollout successful.”
James Campbell, Regional Manager ANZ at SnapLogic said, “Australia’s tech ecosystem is undergoing an exciting period of innovation and incredible growth. Coupled with research showing that Australians are early adopters and strong consumers of technology, it’s not surprising to see the region’s voracious appetite for AI.
“Knowing this, organizations need to step up to the plate, implementing AI-powered technology that’s accessible and easy to use. The linchpin in agility, AI enables organizations to stay flexible and do more with less while keeping employee satisfaction high.”
AI is being integrated into many different technologies and applications, including integration platforms. No stranger to AI in the workplace, SnapLogic developed Iris AI, an industry-first artificial intelligence that helps automate highly repetitive, low-level development tasks, eliminating integration backlogs that can stifle business initiatives.
Iris uses advanced algorithms to learn from billions of metadata elements and millions of data flow via the SnapLogic Intelligent Integration Platform. It then applies that learning to improve the speed and quality of integrations across data, applications, and business processes by suggesting the next integration step, building a complete integration pipeline, or preparing data for app-to-app or data workflows.
