AI/ML Capabilities Fall Short of Executive Expectations, According to a New Global Study by SoftServe23.3.2023 12:05:00 CET | Press release

New data released today by SoftServe indicates a dramatically different understanding of the value of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) among executives at software and digital native companies. Interest in AI/ML has been heightened with the recent release of tools such as ChatGPT and the rollout of AI-powered Microsoft Bing. However, SoftServe's survey of nearly 600 IT leaders across nine countries tells a story of significant eagerness for AI/ML, but a great disappointment with it. While 56% say leadership should consider AI/ML an urgent priority to drive business results, 52% say it should be a priority to retain and appeal to skilled talent. Conversely, 72% of IT leaders say their executive team does not fully understand the technical capabilities of AI/ML and its potential for business success. Furthermore, of those surveyed, 42% say their leadership is not treating AI/ML as urgently as it should be — to the point where this vital investment is falling down the

REPLY: "Everything can become a digital asset" Is the Paradigm Resulting From Reply's ‘Digital Assets Trends’ Research23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release

The digital asset market is growing exponentially. Thanks to blockchain technology and the new generation of operators using tokenization platforms, it is possible to turn everything that can be digitally archived into a digital asset, with recognised value and established ownership. This is what emerges from Reply's new ‘Digital Assets Trends’ research, based on the Reply SONAR platform. By analysing industry studies, scientific articles, patents, documents, and B2B content published in the last year, and integrating concrete experiences from Reply's clients, the study examines the main trends related to digital assets. Tokenization is the first step to bringing real-world assets and financial instruments onto the blockchain, representing an opportunity especially for those of an illiquid nature (e.g., high-value art, public infrastructure, private equity). The main advantages of tokens include the construction of a peer-to-peer network without intermediaries that also serves as a dec

As business returns to normal after recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprises in Europe are seeking innovative, cost-effective ways to combine mainframe dependability with the flexibility of the cloud, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

Although many companies still depend on them for reliability, availability and security, mainframes can be an albatross when it comes to innovation, the report says. Many European enterprises find they are unable to respond rapidly to the deployment of new or updated products. Enterprises that are still running mainframes recognize the need to update their le
