And back to our emerging coverage of Asia/Pacific… where people tend to focus on China, India and Australia. However, the Japanese IT services market is larger than these three markets combined – and is growing. So, let's have our Asia/Pacific research lead, Andrew Milroy, discuss some of the important – and unique – aspects of this lucrative market.
The age of Digital Disruption is evolving into the next era - Digital Cohesion, an age in which applications securely self-assemble and deliver predictive services that continuously adapt to user behavior. Information from devices, sensors and applications around us will drive services seamlessly across mobile and fixed devices/infrastructure. This evolution is happening now in software defined services and secure networking. Four key drivers - Performance, Economics, Interoperability and Trust - will shape the way users, service providers and the industry creates the foundation for the next networking era.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

Since 2009, Chris has been building and leveraging artificial intelligence systems to cognify a wide range of business functions -- marketing, sales, customer support and decision automation to name a few. In the context of the hiring process, we created an AI system -- specifically a natural language processing platform -- that analyzes outbound job descriptions and makes recommendations around how to structure the job description to solicit their ideal responses. So instead of trying to dive into an open source AI platform right out of the gate -- hiring a development team, bringing in data scientists, assigning executives and all that jazz -- you can just use IBM Watson or Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure or nearly any other cloud provider. For example, if I need a natural language processing engine -- I might compare IBM Watson against Google Cloud -- testing their performance, checking accuracy, etc.
