Edge computing and 5G will increasingly merge and push each other forward during 2020. Both technologies have a common purpose, which is to combine on-site compute power and/or highspeed and high-volume networks in order to create real-time IT locations to make the automation and autonomy of complex systems a reality. In addition, real-time capabilities are mission-critical where systems interact with workers and other people to exchange voice or visual instructions (e.g. AR). This trend w...

A central aim of IT/OT integration is to overcome the silos that exist in the OT world. IT can help to centrally store OT data and democratize access to it. This makes it much easier to share OT data, combine it with IT data sources, integrate it into existing applications, or build new ones. The vision is for OT data platforms to become the nervous system of the digital factory. Analytics-based applications form the brain on top of it, often directly linked to the nervous system to ensure...

Chip makers multiply the documentation and arguments in favor of edge-based AI, instead of letting most of the AI-related work being done in the cloud. Beyond their obvious interest in the matter, they raise arguments valid enough in many use cases to evaluate how AI can take place at the edge. Moreover, Cloud hyperscalers themselves are working on solutions to get the best of both worlds that are worth considering when planning an artificial intelligence related project.

The ability of standard file systems like extX, NTFS or Microsoft ReFS to store data volumes in petabyte sizes is limited. Therefore, distributed file systems that are designed for such data volumes are needed in order to store and retrieve dat...

For Western organizations looking to launch B2C digital services into China, look to Tencent. And for applications that require low latency, look to China Telecom.

The banking sector is at a turning point in its history. Banks’ challengers want to grab a piece of the market, and banks are losing market share. The competitors might succeed as banks have a product-centric approach while their digital-native challengers have a customer-centric approach. Banks should quickly improve their customer experience by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI).
