Top Considerations When Operationalizing AI w/ Sarah Rose, Daktronics


Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to rise in priority among service organizations. The 2024 Service Leader’s Agenda survey revealed that it would be the most invested-in technology this year, with 62% of service leaders indicating investment plans. This is also a massive 32% leap from last year, surpassing investment in Business Intelligence (BI) and Field Service Management (FSM) technology. However, while organizations seem initially eager to invest, service leaders still have a complex journey ahead of them to translate the promise of AI’s benefits into a “beyond the pilot” reality.

Join the inService™ Podcast as host John Carroll welcomes guest Sarah Rose, Vice President of Global Services for Daktronics. Having recently overseen Daktronics AI initiative, Sarah will reflect on her journey to date, with an emphasis on what has gone well, what adjustments were needed, and the lessons learned having the benefit of hindsight. She’ll discuss Daktronics’ evaluation process, working with their data structure, and the challenges of implementing AI for the first time in enterprise organizations.

As an experienced Global Services leader, Sarah has spent the better part of her career supporting customers whose systems are mission-critical to their operations. As Vice President of Global Services for Daktronics, Sarah’s team is accountable for the installation and support of over 5.6B installed products across the globe. She was the driving force behind the standardization and improvement of global service foundational approaches that (1) facilitated the development and execution of global service processes, (2) increased the service team’s performance, execution, and productivity with development teams, tools/technology, and data and (3) led the era of customer self-service. Sarah holds an MBA from Western Governors University.
