When it comes to artificial intelligence, the possibilities seem endless. From life-saving medical advances to making shopping more convenient for consumers, people dream about the ways AI can help them achieve things they’ve never been able to do before. It is not without justification—the ability of AI to process increasing amounts of data in a faster way than any previous innovation ever could means unprecedented gains can be made. But there are limitations, and some people feel the way AI is talked about sets expectations higher than they should be. Just how intelligent is artificial intelligence? Let’s explore.More

Although industry standards and trends change every year, the last year or so was presented with particularly unique circumstances amidst the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations were forced to develop creative and innovative solutions in the face of all the novel challenges that come with a remote world, and the business intelligence industry is no exception. As organisations reoriented their strategies to reflect the bizarre circumstances, new trends began to arise in the field of data analytics.More
Over the past year-plus, the supply chain has seen a remarkable number of changes. Organizations have had to adjust to various disruptions, and many have used those adjustments to re-think how they handle their logistics.
More changes could be on the way, because now governments are getting involved. In the United States, the Biden administration is taking steps to decrease reliance on other countries for certain products. Across the Atlantic, the European Union is setting climate goals that will impact a number of industries. Data will play an even more important role in logistics moving forward. Here’s what your organization needs to know about the latest changes impacting the supply chain.More

You might have been joining the great new series of webinars in the series Knowledge Exchange Forum that DI have been hosting on Tuesday evenings at 7pm UK and Irish time. If you’re like a lot of people, this might have been difficult to fit in as it coincides with evening meal-times or after work clubs etc.

The page has been reorganised so now you can find videos under topical categories. This helps if you want to revisit videos that you’ve seen that you want to refresh on a particular technique. But if you watch the sessions every week you can still see them in chronological order and just go straight to the latest topics.More
Dashboards are great tools for visualizing data. Large amounts of data that might be tedious to analyze can be quickly summarized and displayed as charts or a single indicator. However, tables are better for the comparison of individual items. In tables, indicators can assist visualization and improve understanding of the data in the table. So, how can you use these indicators? Let’s look at the two examples mentioned above: standalone indicators and indicators that are part of a table.More
If you ask most anyone about moving their software to the cloud, they’ll not only know what you are talking about, more often than not, they will be doing so themselves. It’s a trend that started long before the pandemic hit. But recently, the trend seems to have picked up its pace. In the “Flexera 2021, State of the Cloud Report,” Flexera interviewed 750 “global cloud decision-makers” about their plans for the cloud, including asking how COVID-19 has impacted their plans. 9 out of 10 of these companies say the pandemic has accelerated their plans. It’s no surprise the pandemic has had an impact on their decision-making.More

It was not quite the same as meeting up with you in person, but the ability to choose from a lot more content plus the interaction with users and consultants from all over Europe, well, kind of made up for it! We loved the introductions by Lieven, Lieneke and Kathy, who all did a splendid job of keeping things running smoothly.More
