Dale Kutnick: Scenario 2021: strategies for exploiting (more) algorithmic & autonomous business
CIOs must prepare for a rapid evolution of digital business into algorithmic and ultimately more autonomous approaches. In financial services, retail, media, ‘exchanges,’ et cetera, companies are aggressively abstracting business functions and services by utilising sensor data, analytics, smart machines and grid-plex data centers. CIOs must work with business leaders to determine how they can exploit these trends to improve efficiency, agility, quality, growth, et al. This will demand new capabilities and expertise in advanced analytics and algorithms, as well as new supporting infrastructures.
