   Why data and AI

   Data is what fuels digital transformation, AI unlocks the value of that data, and hybrid multicloud is the platform to democratize the data. Leading businesses are investing in AI and multicloud to unleash the value of their data in new ways, enabling them to:
     * Predict and shape future outcomes
     * Empower people to do higher-value work
     * Create intelligent workflows that automate decisions and experiences
     * Reimagine highly personalized business models

   AI is the defining transformation technology of our time. Yet, successful adoption remains challenging. The reality is that AI is not magic. In order to turn AI aspirations into outcomes, organizations must first address three major AI challenges.
