How to Successfully Exploit the Power of the Matrix

We have labelled the synergistic combination of cloud computing and machine intelligence (MI) as ‘the Matrix’: the combination of cloud services such as IaaS, IoT, MI, and edge computing. 

  • For companies to thrive, they need to know the answers to the following questions:
  • How are successful companies harnessing the power of the Matrix?
  • How do they structure their organizations?
  • What makes them so agile?
  • How do they attract and retain skilled employees?

Our 6-month research program has dived deep with multiple AWS customers to understand not only their use of the technology, but also the business transformation program that allowed them to maximize the value that AWS provides. Attend this session to learn more about the research that has been done, client examples, observations that we made and how this can be used to help drive your transformation program.

If you are attending AWS Re:Invent we hope you will join Glen for his session.

SPEAKERS
Glen Robinson

Emerging Technology Advisor
Leading Edge Forum

Glen Robinson, based in the UK, is an Emerging Technology Advisor for Leading Edge Forum. 

Glen’s main focus of research is leading edge Enterprise technology solutions that will power the 21st century business. He is the author of our March 2017 paper, Q1 2017 Public Cloud Adoption: Not as Much Progress as You Might Expect. The cloud has unlocked innovation that is now allowing the next wave of disruptive technology solutions to come to market, and whilst businesses are still working out how best to maximize the value from cloud services, they are now aware of ‘the Matrix’, this advanced sensing, deciding, all-seeing, global force that will be a significant threat to some.  But others will learn to understand it, to harness its power, giving them and those around them super-powers.  Put simply, we are moving into a time where our own capabilities will be augmented by that of powerful, intelligent robots.  A lot of the tasks we do today won’t exist tomorrow as they will be fully automated but also watched over and governed by advance cognitive intelligence.  The interface into this world is moving away from the screen on our device, to the world around us becoming an interactive physical and digital experience, which will be responsive to our needs.  

As consumer expectations leapt forward with the adoption of the internet, so too is it about to leap forward once more now the Matrix is upon us.  This will change the way we service our customers, deal with our employees and live and do business in the 21st century.
