It’s important to understand the impact of AI workloads on data management and storage infrastructure. If you’re selecting infrastructure for AI workloads involving ML and deep learning, you must understand the unique requirements of these emerging workloads, especially if you’re looking to use them to accelerate innovation and agility.
This Gartner report highlights three main impacts that AI workloads have on data management and storage.

In the past several years, IDC has witnessed how many organizations have started to develop a wide range of AI capabilities. Initially launched as experiments by relatively inexperienced staff and executed on whatever infrastructure was available, these initiatives have now started to gain critical mass. Many organizations have developed extensive AI expertise, and they are having first-hand experience with the speed with which their AI capabilities are becoming a critical aspect of their business.
At the same time, IT too has journeyed through a learning curve with regard to the infrastructure to run AI on. There is today much greater clarity as to the infrastructure requirements for deep learning training or inferencing and how to scale those environments for production. That deep learning training requires different infrastructure than other workloads is pretty much a given. Deep learning training wants clustered nodes with strong processors, powerful coprocessors, fast interconne
In a dynamic business world, you don’t need a static meeting room booking solution.

Regardless of how many screens you have or what applications you’ve deployed, there’s always something new to learn. But you don’t have to learn every lesson on your own. We’ve compiled a list of tips and best practices from organizations of all sizes—companies with implementations ranging from 10 screens to 2,000 screens. Use this resource to learn from the people that have successfully implemented and scaled digital signage within their organizations.
AI innovation in retail starts with a tech-forward company culture, from C-suite stakeholders down to every employee. AI greatly enhances a retailer’s ability to harness data for better merchandising, marketing, and customer service. It will not only complement existing retail jobs but introduce brand new roles and skill sets into the human workforce.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is helping
companies reduce costs and improve on quality and
productivity by automating some of their most time
consuming, rule-based and replicable business
processes. RPA is especially effective in the banking
and insurance sector where it brings speed and
efficiency to customer service and compliance.
Based on artificial intelligence algorithms, Expert
System’s Cogito cognitive technology enables an
automatic, human-like understanding of the content of
text documents. Applied to RPA, Cogito adds greater
business value and ROI for both repetitive and
complex information-intensive processes.
Using Cogito, companies can expect up to 53%
savings on activities such as FTEs and warranty
management, and cost reductions of 30 to 60% for
email management and quote processing, etc.
For publishers and information providers, your competitive advantage starts with optimizing your most valuable
resource: content. In this context, semantic content enrichment has evolved from a game changing capability into
a de-facto requirement for both competition and innovation.
Expert System’s solutions based on our cognitive technology, Cogito®, help publishers take full advantage of
content to ensure its complete availability for providing compelling content, supporting new product development,
building new revenue streams and improving workflow productivity.
Although computers are better when it comes to processing and making
calculations, they haven’t been able to accomplish some of the most basic
human tasks, until now. Thanks to cognitive computing, machines are bringing
human-like intelligence to many business applications, including big data.
So, what is cognitive computing? According to Forbes, “cognitive computing
comes from a mashup of cognitive science—the study of the human brain and
how it functions—and computer science.” This definition is a good place to start.
However, to really understand what cognitive computing is, we have to go a
The way we produce and consume energy globally is changing. Over the next decade, the energy mix will undergo a significant shift at both a supranational and domestic level as we work towards a cleaner future.
Wind power has the potential to play a big part in this, and the time is now for operators to capitalise on growth opportunities as the market expands. But to convert growth into sustainable long-term business and financial rewards, operators must optimise capital and operational expenditure to ensure wind remains as competitive as possible within the energy mix.
This paper will provide wind business owners and operators with strategies to achieve this, particularly when it comes to the controllable operational elements such as turbine maintenance.
We will look at the current state of play in the market, and projected growth; then will delve into the unique challenges the wind industry faces, with turbines placed in some of the most extreme climates on earth creating a host of ma
The more holistic view of risk a property underwriter can get, the better decisions they are likely to make. In order to build up a detailed picture of risk at an individual location, underwriters or agents at coverholders have, until now, had to request exposure analytics on single risks from their portfolio managers and brokers. Also, they had to gather supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones to look-ups on Google Maps.
When evaluating single risks, underwriters and coverholders typically have to request exposure analytics from their portfolio managers and brokers, or gather their own supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones, through to lookups on Google Maps. But all this takes valuable time, requires multiple user licenses and can generate information that is inconsistent with the underlying modeling data at the portfolio level.
Managing a large, diverse, and geographically dispersed fleet of client systems can be complex and time-consuming. With the increasing prevalence of smart, connected devices that are beginning to appear within the enterprise across industries, technology service organizations will face an explosive demand for a consistent approach to device management and security.
Using Intel AMT, service organizations can take simple and effective steps to enable more manageable client systems. They can streamline operations and create a consistent approach to managing a broad spectrum of devices. Powerful platform capabilities can help service organizations meet user needs, minimize downtime, and safeguard the enterprise. Service organizations can draw upon available solution reference architectures, implementation guides, and readily available tools from Intel and others to successfully activate Intel AMT and begin to realize its major benefits.
Today, business is conducted in a fast-paced, on-demand, globally dispersed environment. Maintaining a competitive edge requires cohesive real-time collaboration. Mobile workers, partners, vendors, suppliers, and even customers expect to be able to work together seamlessly, both inside and outside the firewall. But delivering tools for high-quality collaboration is often challenging, due to the need for businesses of all sizes to support a wide range of personal and business devices. Mixing disparate devices with complex conferencing solutions often lead to frustrated employees, while businesses face a labor-intensive, costly endeavor without a high ROI. In addition, collaboration is evolving with businesses creating small "huddle" spaces and open workspaces that increase the demand for ubiquitous, effective conferencing.
The Intel Unite ' solution is a fast, simple, cost-efficient way to deliver a more secure, manageable, high-quality collaboration experience. Whether you select the
Ypsomed is a leader in the development and manufacturing of injection and infusion systems. The company is keenly aware of the multi-billion dollar problem of poor medication adherence and the need to measure medicine intake and ensure doses are taken at the correct time.
Ypsomed sought to create a digital solution for medication adherence monitoring and smart device management for contract research organizations’ (CROs) use in clinical trials, including self-injection systems for trial participants to administer medications at home. Yet the company faced serious demands for remote device management, global scale, and privacy and security regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR.
To solve these challenges, Ypsomed adopted Philips’ HealthSuite digital platform (HSDP), a cloud platform built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). HSDP allows Ypsomed to connect devices to the cloud and remotely manage them; store data; and manage and scale services globally within healthcare regulatory, privacy, and s

As you know, HR plays a critical role in recruiting, hiring, training, and retaining
the lifeblood of your business: people. But despite HR’s strategic role, it has
traditionally lagged behind other departments in terms of adopting user-friendly,
employee-focused technology investments. Legacy tools and reams of paper
are still often used to prepare, sign, act upon, and manage the overwhelming
document load, from recruitment and onboarding to performance management
