The Internet has revolutionized our lives and hardly anyone can imagine a day without their smart phone anymore. Virtual and Augmented Reality have the potential to change the world in an impressive way, while the Internet of Things has already shaped our lifestyle. The Internet of Things is about processing of device-generated data: and more and more data is being processed. According to Cisco, there will be a data increase of 14.1 ZB per year by 2020. Edge and Cloud Computing offer an exciting solution. But not only this "match" has potential. According to CA Technologies, DevOps and Cloud Tools are the perfect combination to increase software delivery performance.
Enterprise architects are the company's heart when it comes to digital transformation. Literally, EA are rather bridges between business and IT. They enable to align IT strategies, technologies and processes with broader business goals. No wonder EA are as valuable as ever for companies. But progress in the development of Artificial Intelligence is also valuable for businesses. Therefore it is hardly surprising that Bitkom predicts an almost 100% growth of AI this year. What might be surprising is that Germany outplays the USA in terms of AI.
What do we have this week? Enterprise Architecture is indispensable to succeed in the digital business world. But Big Data and algorithms are also inalienable for future business performance. But that is no big news, contrary to the ongoing progress in machine learning. Thanks to successful research findings, algorithms were able to revolutionize the medicine sector by detecting lung cancer.
