    Lee Coulter - CEO of transformAI (Part II)

    Automation in the enterprise has proven efficient, cost effective, & mature enough that early adopters have begun scaling up their deployments to increase returns & amplify their competitive advantage. The long-term repercussions of this will likely widen the gap between market leaders & laggards. In the short term, this expansion will raise questions about the best way to approach sweeping organizational change management for what is proving to be one of the most profound changes organizations & their personnel will ever go through.

    In Part I of this 2-part episode, Lee Coulter, CEO of transformAI joins us to examine the issues surrounding how automation deployments should be upscaled, the value propositions most effective in persuading a CEO to move forward on automation, and which senior executive is best-suited to lead an organization's intelligent automation initiative.

    Caroline Styr – Senior Executive at Cognizant’s Center for the Future of Work

    Traditionally, learning & work have been viewed as mutually exclusive domains in our lives. Each took place in its own chronologically segregated time, often sequentially, but occasionally overlapping each other. However, organizational digital transformation obliges us to re-examine that approach, as perpetual reskilling & upskilling become prominent fixtures in the future of work. Is it time to integrate learning & work to the point they're indistinguishably co-mingled in one’s job description? Will doing so bolster a digitally transformed organization’s competitiveness, particularly in attracting & retaining talent? And how should responsibility for continuously refreshing people’s skills be allotted between individuals, organizations, academia, & government?

    At the dawn of the 4th Industrial Revolution, & against a backdrop of ever-lengthening lifespans, these questions have begun taking center stage. Those entering today's workforce can expect to be employed for 6 decades. Or more. Given the recent pace of technological change, it’s a sure bet the skills they inaugurated their careers with won't be the same ones they’ll need to maintain, much less, advance them. For insight on how people & organizations should realign their expectations of and bearings towards this new paradigm, we consult with Caroline Styr, Sr. Executive at the Center for the Future of Work. Caroline’s recently published study “Cycling Through the 21st Century Career, Putting Learning in its Rightful Place”, highlights this critical, yet lamentably under-discussed issue. We'll learn about some startling findings her study uncovered, her prescription for how organizations can initiate the shift towards a modern career model, and the one surprising thing she believes individuals should focus on in order to adopt a continuous learning mindset.

    Gabby Menachem – CEO of Loom Systems

    In just about every data center worldwide, there's a lot of experience, expertise, and instinct stored in the brains of the people keeping that data center running. However, the surge in demand for data center services, combined with the increasing complexity of their IT infrastructures, is putting a tremendous burden on their staff. It turns out that while hardware and software may be scalable, people are not. Further exacerbating matters is that previous concerns about the age of the equipment have given way to concerns about data center staff aging faster than the equipment. These converging predicaments are fueling the search for a solution. Enter AIOps, which at its essence is a way to bottle a data center’s tribal knowledge, and supercharge the speed at which it's applied.

    To learn more about how an enterprise can benefit from AIOps, we turn to Gabby Menachem, CEO of Loom Systems, which publishes an AI solution that predicts IT incidents before they impact operations. Gabby shares with us many specific use cases where AIOps can add both value and competitive advantage to an enterprise. Along the way, we'll learn how AIOps might ultimately allow organizations to reduce the skillset required for some IT positions, how rapid determination of incident root cause can unexpectedly save an organization millions of dollars, and how AIOps can not only cut costs but surprisingly help grow a business.

    Bret Greenstein – VP and Global Head of AI for Cognizant Technology Solutions

    Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution has long been applied outside biology, to domains such as medicine and psychology. Evolutionary principles have also found applicability in the realm of artificial intelligence and machine learning via algorithms that have the ability to evolve. Ironically, over 150 years ago, Darwin described himself in almost algorithmic terms when he stated "I am turned into a sort of machine for observing facts and grinding out conclusions."

    Leveraging Darwinian doctrine to optimize AI outcomes for clients consumes much of the day for Bret Greenstein, VP and Global Head of AI for Cognizant Technology Solutions. After a 3-decade stint at IBM, Bret joined Cognizant to lead their Evolutionary AI program, which accelerates delivery of those optimal outcomes for a variety of use cases in a broad array of industries. Bret shares with us some finer points about Evolutionary AI’s workings, and the impact it’s having on enterprises today. Along the way we'll discover why implementing AI & machine learning is going to re-prioritize the agenda for CIOs & CTOs, laying the groundwork for IT to transition from a cost center to an enabler of revenue growth.

    Gadi Oren - Vice President of Technology Evangelism for LogicMonitor

    It’s been said that the enemy of execution is complexity. Nowhere has this rung truer than corporate data centers, where growing systems complexity threatens the execution of digital transformation strategies. How can enterprises successfully transition to this new digital business paradigm, without succumbing to the hazards that can jeopardize increasingly complicated IT environments? According to one expert, the answer is AIOps.

    In this episode, we speak with Gadi Oren, Vice President of Technology Evangelism for LogicMonitor. His company recently conducted a global survey of 300 senior IT executives and found that 90% of them had experienced a serious outage in the past 3 years! A shocking figure which LogicMonitor directly attributes to the rising complexity of IT infrastructures. Gadi shares with us how the emerging field of AIOps can counteract this negative trend, mitigate industry talent shortages, and ultimately reshape the future of data centers.
