A Special Report from the Worldcom Confidence Index (WCI) shows that leaders in the C Suite are planning to invest in technology – particularly Artificial Intelligence – to address the challenges of global recession, high inflation and the attitudes of consumers.
The report, entitled: The role of technology in responding to the challenges of global inflation and recession, and the implications for technology companies, draws on the analysis of online conversations from over 80,000 C Suite executives between July and December 2022. The report helps technology leaders, and businesses in general, gain insight into areas of concern, opportunity and need. It also highlights the communications implications of their response and its impact on the confidence and trust of stakeholders.
The data shows that business leaders are planning to invest in technology – particularly Artificial Intelligence – to address the current economic challenges. Both topics saw a significant increase in engagement from September to December 2022 as leaders’ minds turned to planning for 2023. The latest monthly WCI data for December 2022 reinforces the report findings, as AI and technology to collaborate and innovate were the only topics to see an increase in engagement.
