It is no longer enough to simply offer a cloud solution as emerging technologies start to not only dominate but provide a much needed competitive advantage to the business.
Jeremy Potgieter, SADC regional Head, Eseye, says that the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) alongside the prevalence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and analytics are disrupting business models and spurring innovation within the digital sphere.
“Based on the current cellular IoT trajectory, the possibilities are endless. Notwithstanding the highly contested discussion surrounding singularity, the inclusion of AI and analytics to existing cloud offerings are resulting in new and exciting solutions,” says Potgieter.
He says that digital transformation has forever altered the business landscape and leveraging new technologies is fast becoming a necessity: “It is no longer about simply evolving, it’s about pure survival now. If businesses want to remain relevant and competitive, digital transformation has to be top of the ‘to do’ list.”
According to Potgieter, re-engineering processes and making better use of technologies such as IoT, AI and analytics have started to increase: “Companies are choosing to not patchwork existing processes, opting to rather overhaul the system. This has also been done within the context of an overriding cloud strategy and is no longer in isolation, which is a positive and necessary change.”
