Over the past few months, mainstream news, social media sites, university classrooms, and corporate boardrooms have been buzzing with discussions about artificial intelligence (AI). While the topic has sparked recent competition among large, well-established tech companies, artificial intelligence was already here before the current buzz. As a matter of fact, most of us interact with artificial intelligence daily without even realizing it.
Not only have recent innovations in generative AI made it more accessible, but they also demonstrated how AI can understand human language, grasp the meaning behind words, and easily generate responses that are relevant in context. Because of this, AI is set to disrupt every industry — no matter how established or innovative. And as breakthroughs keep being made, AI will be necessary to maintain a competitive advantage and ultimately be successful in the market.
At Quantive, we have long held the belief that how businesses approach and execute their strategy will benefit substantially from artificial intelligence. When it comes to strategy execution, AI capabilities will make workflows more efficient, guide and advise the user, and turn large amounts of complex data into meaningful insights. AI will help businesses boost success by augmenting human intelligence and acting as an assistant to help companies achieve their strategic objectives.
It is something we have been investing in and reinforcing for a while, especially since the acquisition of Cliff.ai in mid-2022. We have been building knowledge and technology to ensure that we are well-positioned to rapidly bring intelligence-based innovations and value to our customers.
With that in mind, today, we’re excited to unveil Platform Intelligence: new AI-based capabilities that put intelligence at the heart of our flagship product, Quantive Results. With this innovation, AI embedded in our platform will assist users across the entire strategy execution journey from planning to assessing outcomes to adapting strategy.
So, what does this mean for our customers? We know the benefits of a well-defined strategy and how OKRs can help businesses achieve the best possible, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start or what you’re trying to solve for. By adding AI capabilities to Quantive Results, our goal is to help customers move past setting and tracking goals to helping organizations achieve goals.
To help with this, our new AI capabilities will help users:
Overcome the OKR “cold start” challenge. Users often need help defining objectives from an overall company strategy or high-level goals. With Quantive’s integrated AI capabilities, users will get suggestions to help sharpen objectives, consider new or complimentary key results, and even orchestrate tasks to help them get started faster.
Identify required initiatives to achieve objectives. As the third component of effectively using OKRs, initiatives can sometimes be missed, omitted, or at a minimum, not explicitly connected to the OKRs. This creates a lack of clarity and alignment within and across teams. To solve this, the intelligence capabilities in the Quantive platform help identify initiatives that should be connected to ensure businesses are set up for success.
Quickly get answers to best use the platform. Content and articles in help centers primarily depend on keyword searches or topic tags for users to get answers to their questions about a product. With the use of AI in Quantive Results, users’ questions can be answered more easily and efficiently which will dramatically improve the user experience and overall productivity.
What we’re announcing today is just the start of all the possibilities that this AI will unlock for Quantive and our customers. Our internal team is hard at work on additional functionalities to support our users throughout their strategy execution journey.
Today, our enhanced capabilities will be available for early access to customers ready to harness the future of AI. As we continue to innovate, we’ll gradually release our intelligence capabilities to all of our customers to accelerate their business success.
