Re: AI is the new cloud.
The way information is migrated these days has changed. Instead of file transfers from server to server, today's environments are various cloud deployments. I can see how adding AI could perhaps help, although AI in the enterprise still feels relatively early if you ask me.

AI is the new cloud.
I've been observing a growing trend in bringing more and more tech functions in-house -- sometimes as a move away from cloud/vendor reliance, sometimes as a move to better manage increasingly complicated multivendor environments.

Either way, the story beneath the story here seems to be that the market has caught up to -- and begun to branch in different directions away from -- the hype. Solutions marketed as simplicity have introduced their own complexities, and these in turn need to be managed. Automation and AI is the new "cloud", Gartner-hypecycle-wise.

To get a better handle on Agile IT and digital transformation, Light Reading Managing Editor Scott Ferguson recently spoke to two experts in these fields: Dan Kearnan, senior director of marketing for cloud at SAP, and Roy Illsley, a distinguished analyst with Ovum.
