Every channel partner is looking for answers when it comes to AI. The industry is awash in AI hype in every vendor presentation, media interview, and product or earnings release. It‘s time to separate fact from fiction. Partners must learn how to help customers sort through all the confusion so they can start to generate revenue on their AI investments.

In this special keynote delivered by Walmart’s global technology director of data science and E2E fulfillment, Doug Gray, managed service providers will hear how AI is impacting today’s leading enterprise organizations. MSPs looking to move from AI hype to business opportunities will hear the methodologies, technologies, use cases and applications − and most importantly − the business value of AI. This presentation will highlight the uses and economic impact of AI at the world’s largest retailer, Walmart, as well as consumer-facing applications in the transportation and health care industries.

Gray finds himself at the center of all this AI activity and will call upon his 30 years of industry experience to help partners solve real-world problems with AI solutions. He has spent his career as a practitioner and leader with analytics-driven organizations such as American Airlines and Walmart, and as a CTO and VP of engineering in software, e-commerce and consulting at Sabre, Travelocity and McAfee. His data science teams have delivered $3 billion in cumulative business value by applying AI and related solutions to complex problem solving. Attendees will hear actionable takeaways they can apply to their AI practices by understanding the benefits large enterprises are realizing from their AI investments.
