Ever since I started working as an analyst way back in 2007, there were always two things that really motivated me. First, finding key actionable insights that made a significant difference to clients. Second, finding innovative ways to remove repetitive tasks so I could spend more time finding those insights. Back then, this was seen more as a novelty – Burint’s Novel Machines. It was the difference between doing well and doing even better. However, times have changed. Clever time saving and AI solutions are no longer a novelty. They are a necessity. Failure to apply these solutions correctly or at all, can be the difference between staying afloat or going under.
