Have a conversation with anyone about how the changing nature of technology is affecting our world, and artificial intelligence (AI) will invariably come up. It has the potential to change all industries in ways we’ve never experienced. The promise of AI is that it will make our lives better, with more lower-level tasks being automated, freeing us up to focus on higher-level endeavors. Automation promises to complete tasks with more efficiency than humans do, and can continually improve through machine learning.
IT process automation can seem like a big step, but there are incremental ways to achieve improved efficiency that reduce risk and drive better business outcomes. The proper approach to automation can turbocharge your administrative teams, open new doors and provide the agility to respond to any business need. It’s the key to unlocking the power of cloud, and new service offerings make it more attractive to those looking to build the right IT business strategy for the future.

The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support.
At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites:
• Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system
A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovatio
• Simplify business process modeling: Quickly build processes in a straightforward cloud-based interface designed for both IT and business users
• Improve process efficiency and accuracy: A central process repository eliminates version control and consistency issues by providing users real-time access to process workflows
• Enhance cross-team collaboration: A shared team workspace engages all business process owners, encouraging cross-team participation and continuous process improvement
A security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform is a valuable tool for organizations who have made appropriate investments in their security operations processes. This recent research from Gartner looks at the necessary preparations that security leaders need to make so that the deployment of a SOAR solution will improve the efficiency of their incident response and security operations teams.
