Manufacturing executives are under the gun to hit production targets amid challenges that include a shortage of skilled workers, inefficient supply chains and a lack of insight into how enterprise assets are performing. In order to make absolutely sure that production quotas and quality standards are met, operational technology (OT) teams tend to err on […]

2019 IT trend: Enterprises will enter an age of Information Enlightenment

As data volumes and data correlations explode, enterprises must react faster and faster to the data to capture its value, especially since its value decays over time. The value may be highest right when the data is created but much lower only seconds or minutes later, and have different values depending on the context. So […]

Abbracciare l’analisi è un buon inizio, ma non è sufficiente

Quasi tre quarti delle grandi imprese hanno già beneficiato di big data e intelligenza artificiale (IA), secondo un sondaggio pubblicato all’inizio di quest’anno nella Harvard Business Review. Tra questi vantaggi, scrivono i co-autori Thomas Davenport e Randy Bean, ci sono le decisioni più ragionate attraverso analisi avanzate, un migliore servizio clienti, costi inferiori e innovazione. […]

2019 IT trend: Action at the edge will disrupt the cloud

We are currently in the phase of building out “the Matrix,” the pervasive, intelligent, societal infrastructure that goes beyond cloud to include edge technologies, machine intelligence, AR/VR, blockchain and more. This is the shift from cloud models that are “out there” to a world where technology is embedded in absolutely everything. With this comes the […]

Machine Learning está triunfando ya en estos sectores

El aprendizaje automático ya no es “una tecnología de futuro”. Las organizaciones en algunas industrias, desde minería hasta fabricación o medicina, lo utilizan hoy en día para ofrecer un mejor servicio a sus clientes, impulsar la investigación y mejorar sus productos o transformar sus operaciones. Mencionemos algunos ejemplos: Minería La inteligencia artificial (IA) y el […]

2019 IT trend: Enterprises will adopt next-generation platforms to make the most of IoT data

As enterprises transition their physical world to a digital one, smart things become a driving force. Enterprises will implement next-generation platforms in 2019 that analyze large quantities of industry-specific data from the internet of things (IoT). Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are finding novel correlations between data previously thought to be independent, enabling […]
