Can you dive deeper into just how important data has become?
At the end of the day, every organization is dealing with data. If you’re a factory and you're connecting your machinery, it’s generating a tremendous amount of data. If you’re a financial services firm, there’s a tremendous amount of data. Data is being generated from all different types of services, some from devices, some from people—but what do you do with it all? It’s being generated all over the place. I look at our own organization as a channel partner and a hosting partner and a cloud partner—we are over 50 percent SaaS services. So a lot of data is in a lot of different locations. It’s about how do you bring that data together and correlate it and find meaning from it. Are there some things you can look at to make some decisions on that data? That’s when we start to talk about machine learning and possibly the systems helping to make a recommended decision in an AI type of format. Those are all things businesses and technology companies are trying to get their arms around.
