Full speed into the future with AI

To streamline processes, maximise resources and optimise data usage in the business, backup and disaster recovery (DR) processes now include Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) functionality. Operational data is where AI and ML have the potential to shine. Designed to track performance statistics, rates of change, speed of access, bottlenecks and so much more, combining ML and AI to operational data is the next step in protecting today’s IT environment.

Big data, what’s the big idea?

Big data is invaluable to society – most businesses now understand its importance, even more so with the global events of the recent months, with many now prioritising time and resources to transform raw information into transformative insight and competitive advantage. However, where a significant number of companies fall down is the techniques required to best monetise their data to gain insights and advantage.

Analysis determines we are in Solar Cycle 25

The solar minimum between SolarCycle 24 and 25 – the period when the sun is least active – happened in December 2019, when the 13-month smoothed sunspot number fell to 1,8 according to the Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Panel, co-chaired by NOAA and NASA. We are now in Solar Cycle 25, with peak sunspot activity expected in 2025, the panel said.

Research reveals a more intelligent future

What does the future of work hold? In a world where it’s impossible to predict what will happen tomorrow, it’s a tough question to answer. But businesses that hope to emerge from the global pandemic in a stronger, better position need to be thinking about – and planning for future models – today. To help, Citrix Systems

undertook Work 2035, a year-long examination of global work patterns and plans, to understand how work will change and the role that technology will play in enabling people to perform at their best.

Choosing the right IoT devices will speed up proof of concept and scale quickly

Enterprises can benefit from ready-to-deploy IoT devices to speed up digital transformation and enjoy competitive advantages in the years ahead. Digital transformation is a key factor of modern business improvement, but to succeed at it, first you need data. To obtain this data you need IoT devices to harvest it, connectivity for the device, and a way of presenting this data to the business. Developing an IoT solution from scratch is a costly exercise and that can take years; it is usually not necessarily due to someone having done it already. Choosing the right IoT devices to speed up proof of concept and scale quickly will bring valuable advantages that make for the key ingredients today for tomorrow’s market leaders. IoT devices are a critical ingredient.
