Google continues to add regional cloud partners as it seeks to differentiate its public cloud offerings while distributing its machine learning building blocks. Atos, the French big data platform and server vendor, announced a partnership with Google Cloud this week addressing secure hybrid cloud, data analytics and machine learning along with "digital workplace" initiatives. Atos (EPA: ATO) said it would establish three machine learning and AI labs in France, U.K. and the U.S. that will use Google's training expertise to develop new machine learning models and applications. "Together, we will enable fast and smooth adoption of AI for enterprises," said Thierry Breton, chairman and CEO of Atos, Bezons, France.

From cloud infrastructure and cloud applications to multi-cloud ecosystems, Indian enterprises' cloud journey has seen tremendous disruptions. Today, organizations across all sectors get triggered - in a good away at the mention of automation, intelligent insights, Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI). Gartner predicts that by 2020, 85 percent of CIOs will be piloting AI programs through a combination of buy, build and outsource. Though tech like AI and smart insights is not new, the enterprise fan base is exploding like never before. Enter born-in-cloud players like Salesforce, whose expertise involves storing large amounts of data and turning it into desired outcomes for the customer.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Aaron Williams, VP of Global Community at MapD, covered the end-to-end use cases of GPUs, from design to interactivity to user experience, and how this technology is producing measurable, significant outcomes for cloud computing. Speaker Bio As VP of Global Community at MapD, Aaron Williams is responsible for growing and fostering relationships with the developer, user and open source communities.

Is your SME ready for automation? - SME Advisor SME Dubai Magazine for SMEs in Middle East

#artificialintelligence

We reached out to expert analyst Sanj Bhayro, SVP EMEA Commercial Sales at Salesforce, to highlight the urgent need for SMEs to be primed for automation and build a future-proof IT infrastructure. Like me, you may have recently read that fintech provider iZettle has received €30 million in funding from the European Investment Bank (EIB) to increase its use of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI). This part of the EIB's strategy, one element of its Investment Plan for Europe, aims to provide funding to start-ups and SMEs that will help boost the region's tech economy. I'm particularly excited to see how this funding can help small businesses innovate and grow rapidly. Over the years I've worked with hundreds of small companies across Europe and, more often than not, I find they make tech investment decisions based on what they need right now, rather than what they will need in the future.

Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But... securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous architectural and coordination work to minimize the volatility of the cloud environment and leverage the security features of the cloud to the benefit of the CICD pipeline.
