Michael Zammuto’s Column On CIO Magazine’s site – Practical AI, Data and Analytics Strategies

In his latest installment on his CIO.com column, Cloud Commerce Consulting CEO, Michael Zammuto talks openly about automation. Enterprise IT initiatives need business partners to succeed. But AI focuses on automation and that means job destruction along with productivity gains.

Many AI initiatives offer a new challenge. We have the ability to automate not just manufacturing, field, service and support jobs but, increasingly white collar, leadership and technology roles. He argues that this means AI will challenge the empires and possibly the careers of the very people you need to drive the initiative. In his article, he talks about innovation, buy-in and the reality of white collar automation.

CCC on CIO.com – AI Can Fix Your Data For You

AI is Different Because Scales With Data

Cloud Commerce Data

Cloud Commerce & AI Can Help Make Projects Scale

Cloud Commerce Consulting CEO, Michael Zammuto wrote recently on his CIO.com column about the impact of data challenges on IT initiatives. Mike argues that many promising IT initiatives stall because they depend upon data being cleaned, enriched or combined as a precursor to success. BI and analytics projects are particularly dependent upon good data. Even with the best traditional tools and techniques, the process of preparing data for these projects does not scale well, often negatively.

This means trouble for IT chiefs and business sponsors alike. Mike argues that because machine learning algorithms can learn to categorize and clean data better as you as it processes more data, this means that AI is the only approach that scales data projects well.

CIO.com Article – 8 AI Technologies Your Enterprise Needs Today

Exec Summary and Reference Sheet on AI

Cloud Commerce CEO Michael Zammuto published a new article on CIO.com entitled 8 artificial intelligence technologies your enterprise needs today. The article is an executive summary and quick reference for CIOs and other functional, technology and business executives who are interested in understanding the most critical aspects of this crucial and transformative technology.

“AI” Is An Overloaded Term

Zammuto argues that the term “Artificial Intelligence” is an overloaded term. To insiders, academics and researchers this term is shorthand for general artificial intelligence which is the common view of AI as a system with intelligence that typically is modeled on biological cognitive systems. General AI is not a commercial product yet and is confined to research projects, predominantly.

Understanding The “AI Landscape”

Zammuto argues that, for enterprises,  the term “AI” is more reflective of an “AI Landscape” that includes many interconnected technologies, available from a broad range of sources and vendors. Of these are ones that get a lot of media attention, including machine learning and automated assistants and chat bots, as well as less broadly appreciated technologies with massive potential including natural language generation and decision management.
