What business systems will AI overhaul? Most developers say ERPs

Listen

Artificial intelligence technologies will soon replace many of today's business processes, according to a recent survey of software developers.

For the survey, market research firm Evans Data Corp. polled software developers who are working with AI technologies in October. The survey focused on business processes that machine learning, deep learning, image recognition and other types of AI might replace in the near future.

The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

Eighty percent of developers said enterprise resource planning software was the area most likely to be totally replaced by AI in the near future. ERP platforms are business management systems that centralize data from different areas of an organization, such as payroll and supply chain.

In fact, 58 percent of developers are adding or have already added AI to their ERP software.

Other business processes that developers forecasted as being replaced by AI were human resources (69 percent) and workflow automation (67 percent).
