  • More than half will invest in AI for marketing (56 percent) and financial forecasting (52 percent)
  • More than a third (34 percent) plan to invest in AI for customer service and user experience and for supply chain management.

In addition, 40 percent of the executives participating in the survey reported that they expect their sales to grow this year.
