SPR, WWT, Conduent, Avanade and Open Systems are among the solution providers to weigh in on AI, ML and automation in 2023.


CEO: Rob Figliulo

Figliulo, CEO of Chicago-based SPR, said AI, ML and cloud computing are the top areas “ripe for transformation and growth in 2023.”

“What’s interesting is that we’re seeing cloud computing as a pathway to innovation, and it’s fueling the growth of other emerging technologies,” Figliulo said. “For example, capabilities such as computer vision, natural language processing, ChatGPT and other generative AIs are allowing companies to harness the power of data like never before.

“These different fields of AI are allowing both developers and nontechnical employees to perform complex tasks without doing the heavy lifting. Historically, all data science has taken place outside the cloud, but that’s changing fast.”

The trend of low-code data science is like “prospecting for gold,” he said. “If you sift through enough dirt you will eventually end up with enough gems at the bottom, except there is little effort involved.”

AI and ML “can sift through massive amounts of data in seconds and provide solutions and breakthroughs that wouldn’t have been otherwise considered,” he said. “We are continuing to identify and invest in new ways that data science can bolster our internal operations, which we expect will translate over to customers.”

Chicago-based SPR’s partners include Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Nintex, Databricks and Snowflake.
