You keep hearing overhyped terms like Big Data and Machine Learning, but what does it really mean for the way your organisation might work?

What you need to understand is that machine intelligence is completely different from traditional software. It's the dawn of an entirely new set of capabilities, it's not something you just plug in, and deploying it meaningfully is going to require more than a couple of board meetings.

Unlike software as a service, deploying meaningful machine intelligence will be tied to deep, deep process changes or a reset of your entire organisation.

This might be the biggest challenge of this century for many organisations, and those that adopt with intelligence and experiment quickly will be those that emerge from the dust and gain ubiquity in the next decade. Partners who understand this will be imperative to enterprise and corporate success.
