Dubai, UAE - August 28th, 2023.

Today, OpenAI, the artificial intelligence research lab behind ChatGPT, announced the launch of ChatGPT Enterprise, an enterprise-ready version of ChatGPT explicitly designed for business use. 

ChatGPT Enterprise provides secure, customizable access to next-generation AI capabilities that will transform how teams think, create, and get things done.

According to information on its website, OpenAI said there has been increased demand from business owners to launch a dedicated GPT for enterprise use.

"Since ChatGPT's launch just nine months ago, we’ve seen teams adopt it in over 80% of Fortune 500 companies. Business leaders have told us they’d like a simple and safe way of deploying ChatGPT in their organizations. "Early users of ChatGPT Enterprise—industry leaders like Block, Canva, Carlyle, The Estée Lauder Companies, PwC, and Zapier—are redefining how they operate and are using ChatGPT to craft clearer communications, accelerate coding tasks, rapidly explore answers to complex business questions, assist with creative work, and much more." 

The latest enterprise version of ChatGPT promises enhanced security, privacy, and deployment tools.

OpenAI's website states, "You own and control your business data in ChatGPT Enterprise. We do not train on your business data or conversations, and our models don’t learn from your usage. ChatGPT Enterprise is also SOC 2 compliant, and all conversations are encrypted in transit and at rest. Our new admin console lets you manage team members easily and offers domain verification, SSO, and usage insights, allowing for large-scale deployment into the enterprise."

Compared to the previous version, ChatGPT Enterprise offers significantly better performance and flexibility tailored to enterprise use cases:

Unlimited GPT-4 Access: No usage caps, so teams can use AI wherever they can to improve workflows.

Higher Speed:  Up to 2x faster ChatGPT response than the free version.

Longer Memory: 32k token context windows to process longer documents, conversations, and workflows.

Advanced-Data Analysis: Unlimited access to examine trends in company data sets.

Customizable: Securely customize ChatGPT's knowledge with proprietary company data.

Shareable: Templates allow teams to capture and reuse workflows easily.

Extensible: Easy integration with company apps via OpenAI's APIs.

Enterprise Security: Advanced access controls, encryption, network isolation, and more.

With plans to continuously improve its performance, the ChatGPT Enterprise may become OpenAI's most powerful version yet. Some of the features in development include customization, availability for teams of all sizes, more advanced data analysis tools optimized for business use, and industry-specific solutions tailored to roles like data analysts, marketers, and customer support. 

What does this GPT Enterprise Launch mean for the AI Market?

The launch of ChatGPT Enterprise is a significant milestone for the artificial intelligence industry. While ChatGPT started as a free research tool, this paid enterprise version signals that practical, commercial applications of large language models like GPT-3 and GPT-4 are coming sooner than many expected.

ChatGPT Enterprise shows that businesses are eager to harness the power of generative AI. The technology has advanced rapidly, and companies don't want to be left behind. This launch validates that AI can provide real value to organizations today. It's not just hype and future promise.

For the global AI market, this launch opens up tremendous new opportunities. It takes conversational AI mainstream beyond being just a viral sensation. Enterprise adoption will spur more investment and accelerate innovation in natural language processing.

Of course, risks remain around AI ethics, security, and potential misuse. But tools like ChatGPT also have immense potential to automate routine work, freeing humans to focus on more creative, interpersonal, and strategic tasks. The enterprise launch puts that potential into practice.

Looking ahead, generative AI seems poised to spread through more industries and transform many jobs. ChatGPT Enterprise may one day be seen as a watershed moment.

For now, it puts advanced AI into the hands of many businesses for the first time. How organizations embrace and utilize this technology will be fascinating to watch in the months and years ahead.

What Does This GPT Entreprise Launch Mean for Open AI Competitors?

ChatGPT Enterprise puts pressure on other AI companies to strengthen their enterprise offerings. OpenAI has set a high bar for commercial applications of large language models.

Competitors like Anthropic, Cohere, AI21 Labs, Deepmind, stability, hugging face and others must demonstrate how their technology stacks up on factors like training data scale, model capabilities, speed, customization options, and enterprise security.

The launch also forces rivals to communicate their differentiation clearly. As OpenAI brings GPT-4 and Codex to market, competitors will need unique selling points beyond API access to large models.

Core AI safety research, vertical expertise, developer tools, and real-world business use cases have become more critical. This rising tide should lift the AI market overall, but organizations without distinct values will struggle.

For enterprises, more choice and competition will be beneficial. But OpenAI's move raises the stakes for other AI startups eyeing this space.

OpenAI was founded in 2015 to ensure AI benefits all of humanity. The research lab made waves in 2019 with the release of GPT-2, the predecessor to ChatGPT. Investors like Microsoft, Intel, Amazon Web Services, Thrive Capital, K2 Global, Alphabet and others Ventures continues to back OpenAI.
