5 Reasons AI is the Future of Business Technology

Posted by Tim Losee on Oct 11, 2017 3:41:50 PM

Artificial Intelligence (AI) like IBM's Watson has quickly emerged as the newest (and some would say, the best) transformative technology for business'. AI enables companies to gain a significant advantage by augmenting human expertise to help unlock new intelligence from data and use it to develop predictive insight. The shift to systems that can reason and learn from both new and old data can significantly benefit a company, making your business technology an asset to your bottom line. 

With the rising demand for AI technology, estimates project that the AI market will grow $2.5 billion in 2014 to more then $12.5 billion in 2019. Over the next two years over half of all consumers will interact with some form of Artificial Intelligence on a regular basis. IBM recently took a survey of over 600 companies using AI on different levels and created a Cognitive Global Market Report, within the report we found 5 top reasons to claim cognitive technology like Watson is the future of Business Technology.

What is Technical Debt?

Posted by Tim Losee on Sep 12, 2017 2:51:40 PM

You might have heard the term "Technical Debt" floating around your office. It has become one of IT's newest buzz words and has some people scratching their heads as to what it means. The official definition of Technical Debt is: A concept in programming that reflects the extra development work that arises when code that is easy to implement in the short run is used instead of applying the best overall solution. Technical debt is commonly associated with extreme programming, especially in the context of refactoring.

Clearly Technical Debt can be a hindrance to your companies future, and can keep you from accessing not only future tools and techniques, but also future developers as well. If you are using extra man power to work on short term issues, you are holding yourself back from innovation and thus closing off your supply line of new developer talent that might come.

Today we want to take a look at What Technical Debt is, what causes it, and some solutions that might help you!
