10 Steps to Create a Successful Cloud and AI Strategy - TD Web Services

#artificialintelligence

To drive business agility and accelerate IT transformation, an integrated hybrid multicloud and AI strategy is key. For a competitive advantage IT transformation has become imperative for all modern enterprises. The agility of any organisation will depend on the IT infrastructure. IT infrastructure will also define how quickly an organisation can scale and how well it can serve it's customer based on every changing dynamic digital landscape. As economies are becoming more digital – cobbled with rapidly expanding, ever evolving markets, IT infrastructure should ensure organisations must be able to match its pace.


AI-enabled Network Automation Requires the Right Tools for the Job

#artificialintelligence

Amid the imperative of digital transformation and the enterprise adoption of multicloud, network agility and flexibility are prized. The right network-automation tools can help, contributing to agile operations while enabling the portability of applications and data between on-premises datacenters and clouds. With the rise of cloud operating models and multicloud environments, there's no question that network professionals are compelled to forgo manual processes, inherently inefficient and error prone, in deference to automated processes that are more efficient and verifiable. IDC foresees network-automation tools evolving in lockstep with cloud-driven requirements to enable efficient and relevant connectivity of network service/functions within multicloud environments. Given the nature of multicloud, automation tools should work across a range of cloud services from different cloud service providers.


Q&A with Hillery Hunter, VP & CTO IBM Cloud on IBM's Software Transformation - THINK Blog

#artificialintelligence

A couple of weeks after having closed its landmark acquisition of Red Hat, IBM is announcing new cloud capabilities that will transform the way clients do business and accelerate their journey to the cloud. This includes: IBM Cloud Paks, Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud, Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Z and LinuxOne, and Consulting and technology services for Red Hat. All of this will be delivered on IBM's hybrid multicloud platform, which is based on industry leading open technologies. We sat down with Hillery Hunter, VP & CTO IBM Cloud; IBM Fellow, IBM Cloud and Cognitive Software, to discuss what IBM's latest announcements mean for clients and the industry. How has the definition of cloud shifted over time?


Top 5 Technology Trends to Impact the Digital Infrastructure Landscape in 2020

#artificialintelligence

Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, released its top five technology trend predictions for 2020, which point toward the critical digital transformation that organizations are making to lead in the new digital era. Equinix's expansive footprint across more than 50 global markets, and its position as a leading meeting and interconnection point for ecosystems of networks, clouds, enterprises and nearly 10,000 customers, give it a unique and holistic lens to view critical digital infrastructure trends. There is a seismic shift underway across many industries as businesses are embracing edge computing and hybrid multicloud architectures. Increasingly, businesses are moving computing from centralized data centers to a distributed infrastructure and toward the edge, where data exchange and interconnection between businesses and cloud services are growing at an exponential rate. The advent of edge computing has also become a foundational enabler for other emerging technologies such as 5G mobile communications, which will allow internet of things (IoT) and other edge devices to take advantage of faster connectivity to data and compute resources with single-digit-millisecond network latency.
