Being a business leader in the established economy is not necessarily a fun job these days. Keeping the competitors at a distance while finding ways to defend the current business model against the Internet giants like Amazon, Google, Facebook etc. is a tough job. However, running a business based on digital disciplines and being prepared with the right armor is simply about doing rather than thinking about the why. As a supporting element, a modern business strategy is built upon a magic triangle that consists of three vertices delivering the necessary essentials: Be digital. Use cloud. Leverage artificial intelligence (AI). In this article, we are going to unfold this triangle. Digital: Just do it First, talking digitization means talking about a digital evolution and not a transformation. We are within a digitization process that has started over 40 years ago w... (more)

Explosion of #IoT Data | @ThingsExpo @Tibco #AI #IIoT #M2M #DX #SmartCities #BigData

How to Manage the Explosion of IoT Data The Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved quite rapidly, especially if you consider how long it took for little packet-switching networks like ARPANET to morph into today's nearly ubiquitous internet. Our nascent IoT ecosystem is already populated by billions of sensors and connected devices, hundreds of millions of servers, and thousands of hybrid clouds serving billions of people... all of them perpetually producing and/or consuming data in an explosion of information. This evolution has given rise to entirely new user interfaces influenced by models geared to augment reality and create frictionless human experiences with devices and applications. We now have an expectation of interactive immediacy with technology that is rapidly becoming second nature and represents a big, generational paradigm shift. What we think of as a ... (more)

Nutanix “Platinum Sponsor” of @CloudExpo NY & Silicon Valley | #AI #DevOps

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud for DevOps DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.

TechTarget: #CognitiveComputing at @CloudExpo New York | #AI #ML #DL

What is cognitive computing, and how is it alike -- or different -- from artificial intelligence (AI)? Judith Hurwitz: What's key in building traditional systems is that they begin with process and logic, attempting to answer the question, 'What am I trying to do for my business?' You develop the logic, write the code and then flow data into that. That doesn't work in this age of digital transformation, where business logic and processes are constantly changing. In a cognitive approach, you lead with the data and let it drive you to the right logic. This is a very different way of approaching computing. In addition to data helping determine the logic, cognitive computing applications are designed to learn from human experts.
