Thought Leadership Spotlight:Transforming Industries with Active Analytics

The forces of IoT, 5G, and AI are driving massive shifts in the way organizations operate. There’s no industry that won’t be impacted by these technologies. And at the heart of this transformation is data. Data generated by IoT devices, transmitted by 5G, and analyzed by AI. But businesses looking to lead in this new era are finding themselves challenged. Traditional data and analytics infrastructure is reaching its limits, slowing adoption of revolutionary new technology and development of new products and services. Static dashboards and passive processes that give business leaders an outdated view of the business are no longer sustainable. Organizations need to make the move to active analytics, a new paradigm in which data is constantly analyzed, decisions are made dynamically, and machine intelligence is combined with human intuition for new insight. We’ll explore the key components of an active analytics architecture and discuss live applications in the real world.

ARTIFICIAL Intelligence - REAL results

As a CIO, CDO or CTO you will know that supply chains deliver your company’s goods, products, services and promises. In this day and age of digitalization, the hard lines between industry specific supply chains like Hi-Tech, Consumer Electronics, Semiconductors, Consumer Packaged Goods, Retail etc. are blurring and the boundaries are disappearing –“Industry Morphing”. Industries are gravitating towards each other as they require lot of intelligence, experience and learning from adjacent industries to create successful ecosystems. API-led architectures and AI-powered Supply Chain Management (SCM) Platforms will allow for seamless integration with the digital ecosystems to ingest real-time data and leverage Big Data, AI and ML to deliver significant competitive advantage.
