Anybody involved in software delivery will tell you that automation is an inherently good thing. But can a devotion to test automation for its own sake throw the software lifecycle out of balance?

You know you need AI. You have already committed to delivering AI, and you’re working to build your organisation into an AI-driven enterprise. To do so, you have hired top-notch data scientists and invested in data science tools -- a great start. Yet, somehow your AI projects are still not getting off the ground.
By Sivan Metzger, Managing Director of MLOps & Governance at DataRobot.
COVID-19 has widened the gap between digitally advancing and digitally struggling organizations. Our recent research found that when it comes to AI, 78% of high-performing AI organizations – those who had deployed AI at scale within their organization – continued to progress their initiatives at the same pace as before the pandemic. On the other hand, more than half of the organizations who were struggling to implement AI had to pull their projects.

In the early two-thousands, I can vividly remember walking into a local electronics store and catching a glimpse of a high definition television for the first time. The quality of the visuals took television to a new level and made it feel like a truly immersive experience. It was streaks ahead of the grainy box that was sitting in my living room and I knew then it would revolutionise home entertainment. I can also remember a similar moment around the beginning of the last decade when 4K televisions began to hit the market, and we’re now seeing the emergence of 8K devices.

You’d be hard pressed to find an industry or sector that has not undergone a paradigm shift thanks to technology.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is hugely prevalent in almost all aspects of our day-to-day lives including security. Looking at the security landscape, supervised machine learning (ML) is well established in threat detection but unsupervised ML and deep learning are increasingly popular tools for post breach anomaly detection.

Aging data lakes, while popular in previous years through their promise of being able to provide an overview of useful business data, haven’t lived up to the expectations they were due to deliver. Instead they have struggled to provide the true visibility for transparent business decision making.

Wrike has released new findings that uncover the cost of work complexities brought about by the Digital Era and accelerated transformations. According to the research report commissioned by Wrike, “Dark Matter of Work: The Hidden Cost of Work Complexities,” up to 55% of the work that takes place within an organisation is not visible to key stakeholders, costing organisations up to $60 million a year in wasted time, delayed or canceled projects, and employee churn. This lack of visibility has created the “Dark Matter of Work,” a term coined by Wrike Founder Andrew Filev to describe the vast amount of work that isn’t captured, tracked, or measured against goals because it takes place in synchronous applications and unstructured ways.
Arcserve has published the first in a series of findings of its annual independent global research study on current experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers (ITDMs) around data protection and recovery. Key findings from the research show that ransomware attacks continue to impact organisations worldwide with high costs, but they are still largely unprepared. With 50% of respondents targeted with ransomware attacks, the research indicates the critical need for companies to take a new approach to data resilience that fortifies disaster recovery strategies, backup systems, and immutable storage solutions to prevent the loss of mission-critical data.
