Artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and IOT are all the hot buzzwords right now. But, is anyone actually doing that stuff and making money in those areas?
For the past 18 months, David Powell has traveled the country seeing customers, who are some of the most recognizable brands around, with his new company LogicMonitor. In these meetings, and much to his surprise, there are a lot of actual stories around those hot topics that go beyond the buzzwords and are real business outcomes.
In this informative talk, David will share his “stories from the road,” offer real-world insights about these hot topics, and give some ideas about how we can embrace them.
