Artificial intelligence (AI) leads the charge in the current
wave of digital transformation underway at many global
companies. Organizations large and small are actively
expanding their AI footprints as executives try to comprehend
more fully what AI is and how they can use it to capitalize
on business opportunities by gaining insight to the data
they collect that enables them to engage with customers
and hone a competitive edge. But, while AI may indeed be
the frontier of enterprise technology, there remain many
misconceptions about it.
Part of the confusion stems from the fact that AI is an
umbrella term that covers a range of technologies —
including machine learning, computer vision, natural language
processing, deep learning, and more — that are in various
stages of development and deployment. The use of AI for
dynamic pricing and targeted marketing has been in use for
a while, but actual AI computing where machines think like
humans is still many years from becoming mainstream. T
Using data to reinvent one’s business has reached the mainstream. Data and analytics allow us to change the world around us: it gives us insights into what is happening, allowing us to optimize our strategy, create new business opportunities, and make more accurate predictions.

Mobile has hit the mainstream in the U.S. At the end of 2009, the number of mobile subscribers had grown to 280 million, reaching 87% of U.S. households. The availability of unlimited data and text messaging plans has pushed consumer mobile usage beyond voice to text messaging and Internet access.
The cloud has gone mainstream, 75% of businesses are using or plan to use cloud based services. More Enterprises are adopting multi-cloud environments, 50% of IT leaders plan on using four or more cloud-based services.
IT leaders are likely to need multiple UC vendors; however, changing expectations and product development are closing the gap between best-of-breed and good-enough technology. Assess your UC practices to see whether the features offered by your UC vendor are good enough for a single-vendor approach.
The midsize and large enterprise UC markets are now considered by Gartner to be in the early mainstream adoption phase, and the best practices for deployment and end-user adoption are maturing. However, most enterprises currently operate with non-unified-communications solutions.
Did you know that over 77% of all enterprises have adopted a “virtual first” strategy for new server deployment? Virtual infrastructure has become the mainstream deployment model in enterprise IT today. Check out the current virtualization market statistics and find out why flash is essential for virtual computing.

The software as a service (SaaS) delivery model has matured to such an extent that there is now an on-demand component to most software applications, whether it is online help, automated updates or the main application engine. At the same time, many vendors are realizing that to provide a satisfactory end user experience, total reliance on a web browser is not always enough and a desktop component is often needed.

Chuck Dubuque - Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Server and desktop virtualization technologies, which bring cost and agility advantages to enterprise IT, have become mainstream in most datacenters. However, after nearly 10 years, virtualized servers still only represent about 30 percent of x86 production workloads due to technology limitations and the expense of proprietary virtualization platforms. In this session, Chuck Dubuque will cover:
* The benefits of datacenter virtualization
* Technologies in the open source community that will enable pervasive virtualization
* The move to the cloud
* The particular advantages of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and the Red Hat subscription model
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) enterprise resource planning (ERP) is accelerating as a mainstream delivery model to help companies gain flexibility and leverage modern cloud technologies. The market landscape is evolving as pure-play SaaS ERP providers battle traditional ERP vendors that are repositioning their offerings for the cloud.
Businesses should assess the viability of their current ERP deployments and consider the rapidly changing ERP landscape as they plan a transition path to the cloud. Review the Forrester report to hear how the ERP market is changing, and how businesses are reconsidering deployment models to better fit their goals and needs.
As software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) continues to become a mainstream technology, its relationship to WAN
Optimization (WANop) must be examined. At first glance, the two can appear alike, and are often erroneously
mentioned as synonymous technologies. A deeper examination however, will reveal two distinct and highly
complementary technologies with very limited feature overlap. This document aims to demystify the relationship
between the two, outline the market shifts that have led to a reduced WANop sector, and provide a recommendation
on deploying both technologies in a modern enterprise WAN.
Digital transformation has moved out of the early-adopter phase and into mainstream adoption. According to the ZK Research 2018 IT Priorities Study, 88% of businesses now have digital
initiatives underway, up from 84% in 2017. The urgency of IT and business leaders is well warranted, as companies that master being digital will leapfrog the competition and be able to sustain
a market-leading position. Those that lag in their digital initiatives will fall farther behind and will
struggle to survive.
The key to digital success is having an agile IT foundation that enables businesses to adapt to
market transitions faster than the competition. However, there is no single technology called “digital transformation.” Rather, it is powered by the following four key enabling technologies:
The unifying concept that defines FICO and its substantial technology and solutions stack is Decision Management. This term has not yet become mainstream - but it will. All business analytics activities are performed with the single aim of improving the accuracy and efficiency of business decisions. This applies to business intelligence, data visualization, data mining, business rules management, and many other forms of analysis. Unifying these activities under a single discipline means that currently fragmented analytical efforts can be combined into a single whole, with benefits that will be discussed in this review.
