With just three months of the year remaining Gartner is predicting ten strategic trends for 2018. Artificial Intelligence features heavily and one of the predictions is intelligent applications, with the research company stating that over the next few years every application and service will at some level incorporate AI.
“AI will run unobtrusively in the background of many familiar application categories while giving rise to entirely new ones. AI has become the next major battleground in a wide range of software and service markets, including aspects of ERP [Enterprise Resource Planning.” – Gartner
Other predictions from Gartner include the ability to use AI to enhance decision making; cloud moving to the “edge” computing topology; and conversational platforms driving a paradigm shift. Read the article by Kasy Panetta in full on the Gartner website here.
