Building the Ladder to Artificial Intelligence and Digital Transformation

Namik Hrle


Businesses must embrace digital transformation to remain competitive due to fundamental changes in how businesses operate and deliver value in increasingly digital world. Artificial intelligence is a key engine and data is fuel of digital transformation. There is no AI without IA (Information Architecture): the data must be made simple and accessible (but secure!) in order to build a trusted analytics foundation and generate actionable insight, to scale it on demand by using cloud delivery, private and public, and eventually apply machine learning everywhere. Building this ladder to AI to enable digital transformation of your business and how IBM can help on that journey is the topic of this presentation.
