New research projects increased sales opportunities, improvements in gross margins, and lower expenses due to AI Readiness

Our research leveraged public and private data. We then applied a 9-point algorithm to each company that measured data maturity, analytics maturity, alignment with key vendors, and free cash flow.”

— Greg Buzek, President IHL Group

NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, December 1, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Department store chain Macy’s, Inc. could see over $7.5 billion in business improvements by the end of the decade due to Artificial Intelligence (AI) according to new research from IHL Group, a leading technology research and advisory firm.
