Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning. The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business (LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy. IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs, systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be

As the information age matures, data has become the most powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses have embraced digital transformation, often staking their reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers can’t trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove harmful to the integrity of business decisions. In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality

For both finance and HR, this separation is often driven by organizational obstacles, disparate systems and data sources, regulatory uncertainty, and a lack of complete visibility into the business. As Joseph Fanutti, CFO of Bill Gosling Outsourcing, says of his own organization’s challenges, “Finance operated its own silo, HR its own, operations its own. There was a lack of consistency in terms of how we viewed the business.” He recalls, “Numbers were always challenged, no one could agree on metrics, and people couldn’t agree on what actions to take going forward.” If this situation sounds familiar, that’s because it’s commonplace across organizations the world over. Strategic uncertainty and incomplete data are symptoms of a larger problem: a lack of unification among finance, HR, and operations teams. Managers need to make financial and people decisions in tandem, yet traditional systems store this information independently. This separation creates multiple versions of the same u

Competition is growing fierce for restaurants — and not all of it comes from other local dining establishments. With grocery stores and meal kit services offering additional convenient and affordable dining options for customers to choose from, and with many restaurants turning to faster and smarter automation methods to power their operations, now is the time for your restaurant to step up its game.
