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 […]

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 […]

Think complex processes can’t be automated with RPA? Think again

Over the last eight years I’ve read through methodologies, use cases and capabilities and above all – watched robotic process automation (RPA) grow as a solution. I’ve never written anything about RPA so I thought it pertinent for my first-ever blog to write about something close to my heart: complex processes in the context of […]

2018: AI gets smarter and more practical

We all know AI is coming to the forefront of technology in the form of machine learning (ML) and deep neural networks, where AI can understand the surroundings and apply that information to the current context, whether it is about data pattern analysis or driving a vehicle. Coupled with increasing capabilities of AI hardware, in […]

Artificial intelligence in travel and transportation: How to take care of the fleet, the business and the passenger

Moving people and cargo around the globe, safely and on time, is a logistical challenge that draws on vast amounts of data. This data is a powerful but under-leveraged resource that can be put to greater use with artificial intelligence (AI). Think more efficient fleets, better route and capacity planning, and smoother passenger bookings and […]

Artificial intelligence in government: How to be more efficient, effective and responsive

globe

As artificial intelligence (AI) increasingly comes into the mainstream, what better place to apply it than in the public sector, where vast troves of data can be leveraged to make government work smarter for its citizens. From infrastructure projects like repairing highways, to public services like reviewing patent applications, to policy decisions about staff allocation, […]

Artificial intelligence in manufacturing: How to run longer, run better and keep relevant

Imagine if you could anticipate equipment service needs in advance, accurately, and spend time only servicing the equipment that needs it when it needs it. Imagine, too, if you could make smarter production design decisions that optimize the overall manufacturing process. You can, with data you already have, by leveraging it using artificial intelligence (AI). […]

M is for Machine Learning

This post is part of a continuing series, “Digital: from A to Z,” that explores what it means to be “digital” from A to Z, broken down into individual blog posts diving deeper into various subjects. Check back regularly to see continuing posts as I work my way through the alphabet and let me know: What’s […]

Enterprise Trend Visualization and the Potential of OSINT

Is it possible to build a dashboard and command center to give a 360-degree view of the emerging trends, topics and conversations affecting your enterprise? KPMG believes so. They have invested in Bottlenose, a cloud-based trend intelligence solution that analyzes real-time streaming data from social media and other sources. How much data? A Twitter feed is around a […]
