    Leveraging Data and Cloud to Reimagine Your Business Differentiation

    Leveraging Data and Cloud to Reimagine Your Business Differentiation

    Ever since technology has advanced in the service industry, the question has been, “What does this mean for workers?”
    There isn’t a simple answer. However, there are still aspects to service that no one has figured out how to emulate with AI yet.
    So, how are tech and the human touch working together?
    Today’s guest, Terry Jones, Founder of Travelocity, gives his insights on the changing landscape of data and AI technology—after founding six startups and working in IT for over 40 years, Terry knows his way around the field.
    Join us as we discuss:
    The future of travel data
    The significance of cloud storage
    How AI still struggles with human behavior


    Let’s dive into the future of AI and travel data!
    The future of travel data
    The travel industry is late to the AI table, but they’re catching up. With each innovation around delivering information to customers and eager travelers comes new opportunities for crafting better user experiences.
    Futuristic ideas around AI and its capabilities are coming into fruition, and Terry has a unique view to witness and shepherd what that looks like in the travel industry.
    Struggles with AI integration
    That doesn't mean AI is not without its hiccups.
    “In my company, we are trying to recommend to travel agents the best hotel in Cancun. And we never could get the agents to agree.” Terry said, sharing a struggle with implementing AI.
    “They would say, “well, that's not the best hotel. How do you know?” And we would say, “well, we looked at 100,000 consumer reviews, we looked at real reviews, we looked at the hotels that won awards, and we say that's the best hotel,” he continued.
    Because of their natural personal bias that reigns in everyone, the agents insisted the algorithm had the incorrect results.
    Consumers look at AI curated lists and top recommendations with more openness—theiry’re approach comes from needing answers, and they don’t believe they have them.
    Whereas with the agents, they had pre-decided, based on previous experience, which hotel was the best.
    The kinks in the tube for integrating AI into travel resources are tenacious, but people like Terry will straighten them out.
    “You can't just recreate the app, you have to reimagine what it can do. Understand that moving it to the cloud doesn't relieve you of all the problems.” — Terry Jones
    The significance of cloud storage
    Cloud storage has changed how we store, collect, and maintain information. The idea that one can have stacks and stacks of data inside the Cloud is still relatively new. However, it’s not a golden ticket for success.
    3 tips from Terry
    Utilizing Cloud storage is a balance.
    Here are a few tips from Terry about how to support overall data management:
    Be the orchestrator — Data, no matter how it’s stored, needs to be managed and orchestrated at every endpoint.
    AI and MI are your friends — They enable customers to ask harder questions and get faster results.
    Train your people — Make sure your team knows the system inside and out to gain maximum impact from the technology at hand.


    Implementing AI, MI, and the Cloud are game-changers from customer to CEO. Are you getting the most out of it that you could?
    AI still struggles with human behavior
    With the rapid ascent of AI, it would be easy to assume it would surpass human relevance in the service industry. That’s not the case.
    Here’s why the human touch won’t be out of style in the service industry any time soon:
    Is that a golf course or only a 12in flag on grass?


    Terry shared a story of an AI system mistaking a little flag as a golf course and making an incorrect recommendation for a hotel to a customer.
    People can track nuance better than artificial intelligence.
    Teaching AI will take time


    It may be a while yet until AI can successfully differentiate between unique language patterns, nuance, sarcasm, etc. with consistent results.
    Our brains are built to process language and parrot it almost perfectly.

    How the Pandemic Has Shaped the Future of Work

    How the Pandemic Has Shaped the Future of Work

    Most people learned long ago not to trust their local weatherman…

    But here’s one prediction even he can get right: Tomorrow will be filled with clouds. 

    Well, OK — the cloud. And maybe not tomorrow, but eventually everyone will move to it.

    So, even if you aren’t migrating today, you better have a plan.

    That’s just one of the keen insights today’s guests Bill Fix, Senior Consulting Architect-Team Lead, and Gaurav Singhal, Consulting Solutions Architect, at Presidio, share with host Raphael Meyerowitz in this episode as we discuss the future of work in light of new, post-pandemic innovations and expectations

    We also discuss:
    Why workforces are becoming more platform-agnostic with their collaboration tools (and the integrations they need to pull it off)
    Why the pandemic has accelerated the shift to the cloud
    The rise of video technology in healthcare
    The technological demands of a hybrid, partially-distributed workforce
