Cognisant computing – the next major phase of cloud development – is set to have a major impact on business IT services in the coming years.
This is the view of Jessica Ekholm, research director at Gartner, who stated the practical application of cognisant computing could have a real impact on the amount of information being managed by businesses on a day-to-day basis.
“Over the next two to five years, the Internet of Things and big data will converge with analytics. Hence, more data will make systems smarter,” she commented.
As a result, data storage and management processes will need to be strengthened for all companies, as leveraging insight from this wealth of new information could give them a considerable advantage over their rivals.
Ms Ekholm concluded the increased awareness of and implementation of analytics and self-learning systems will force B2C companies to hasten their adoption of these technologies, to stay competitive.
