GlobalData Studies Company Spending on Emerging Technologies

GlobalData released research that “reveals a significant shift toward Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data platform spending among IT practitioners.” Brad Shimmin, GlobalData’s service director, says:

If the last few years has shown anything it’s that the Internet of Things (IoT) is a clear stepping stone along the path toward what many consider to be the next industrial revolution. … But the great myth of IoT, that it alone can miraculously enable factories and cities to run themselves is just that—a myth. Without a view into the business as a whole, IoT is nothing but the instrumentation and reporting of select functions. Real digital transformation requires not just IoT but IoT in context, which is to say alongside big data and analytics, all fueled by AI. … As companies come up to speed on AI and big data, GlobalData expects to see continued efforts by IoT players in driving digital twin-enabling technologies, for example blockchain, that will help companies understand how those foundational investments can be put to work more broadly.
