“AI can help organizations work smarter,” says Stuart Ravens, principal research analyst at Navigant Research. “Each new deployed Internet of Things (IoT) device can improve an organization’s visibility into business or customer operations. Each new development in analytics allows companies to gain deeper insights from data, opening new market opportunities or improving existing business processes. Each new development in data management allows companies to access more complex datasets, gain insights more quickly, and increases their competitive edge.”
