Data in Motion: Impact on Emerging Technologies
Data is, without a doubt, the fuel of digital transformation and the lifeblood of AI. When properly harnessed, it drives innovation, improves competitiveness, and enhances customer experiences. According to IDC, the amount of digital data created over the next five years will be greater than twice the amount of data created since the advent of digital storage. It predicts that the collective sum of the world’s data could add up to 175 zettabytes in 2025. By 2025 every connected person in the world (about 75% of the total population at that time) will have a digital data engagement over 4,900 times per day, about once every 18 seconds. The IoT devices generating much of this data will generate over 90 ZB of data in 2025.
Amid the explosion of data and how it could spur innovation, without the right tools, it would be impossible to unlock its true value. Sessions of the day will examine the crucial role of data to the success of AI and ML applications highlighting data collection and data management solutions. This will guide participants on how to devise an effect data strategy.
The Hyperconnected World
Advances in communication and networking technologies have changed the way we create, process, and share information. As the number of IoT devices continue to rise, 5G will be play an important role to make IoT more efficient and effective allowing to transmit vast amounts of data in real time. Driven by the massive adoption of digital technologies, increased usage of mobile devices, sensors, and the proliferation of data capturing devices, data landscape has never been the same. According to Bernard Marr, growing data volumes, faster network and processor speeds, and the “democratization” of data are coming together and will affect society in a way that is much more than the sum of their parts.
Tracks will discuss trends affecting the future of connectivity, implications of a hyperconnected world, and how data explosion is forcing organizations to rethink their data storage strategy.
Cybersecurity and Threat Intelligence
The unprecedented rush to move online presented new forms of challenges including the alarming cases of cyberattacks which vary in form, scope, and frequency. Cyber criminals seized the opportunity to launch treacherous attacks leading to a cyber pandemic. Among others, the increase in consumer demand for digital technologies, rise of digital wallets, changes in corporate networks to enable remote work force, rapid acceleration of digital transformation initiatives, and the use of personal devices to allow remote working created the perfect storm for cybercrime.
With remote working as the new normal, enabling safer data access becomes imperative
Sessions will highlight tools organizations need to survive and succeed in the post pandemic era and the evolving faces of cyberthreats including AI-enabled cyberattacks.
The Future of Business
The covid-19 pandemic has accelerated digital adoption affecting business priorities and timelines. According to a Mckinsey & Company study, on the average digital adoption increased 7 years whereas in Asia-Pacific, it leapfrogged 10 years of progress in a matter of months. Many of these changes will forever alter the way we work, and the way we live.
With the unprecedented growth of cloud adoption, globalization, explosion of data, emergence of disruptive technologies, growing trust on e-commerce, remote work becoming the new norm, and the evolving trends in networking, how do we prepare for the future? how will the future of work look like?
