Contact Center AI – Sorry, No Chasm, No Trough!
Geoffrey Moore wrote about the dreaded “chasm” in his hi-tech marketing bible, Crossing the Chasm, where technologies go to die if they don’t gain traction among mainstream buyers, and Gartner talks about the “trough of disillusionment” in their hype cycle—e.g., AI earlier in customer engagement and everywhere—where many technologies perish or take years to get out of, if at all. Sorry, no such thing for AI in the Contact Center this time around.
