In an interview with TechWeekEurope, Microsoft Azure CTO Mark Russinovich explained why he is a keen believer in the power of machine learning and big data. He said, “Every vertical is going to be disrupted by machine learning and big data…Every one of these businesses is going to be disrupted by this — and if you’re not doing it, your competitors are going to leave you behind.”
The article adds that companies that are ‘born into the cloud’ have a competitive advantage over existing businesses as they can react to development much faster.
Russinovich said, “The world is moving so quickly— I don’t think companies have had time to digest this…It’s no fault of their own…and anyone that’s born new, jumps right to this stuff.”
“By taking advantage of these cloud languages, such as machine learning as a service and big data as a service, they can compete with the big established companies very quickly — effectively, it’s a magnifier for them — they don’ªt need to hire staff or build data centres, all the foundation work is already there for them“
