AI Security in 2020: Defend against AI-powered cyberattacks

Businesses can implement AI-powered security solutions into their systems to protect against online & offline security issues. Though AI is an effective solution to protect organizations from cyberattacks, it also enables attackers to launch complex, automated attacks.

Another aspect of AI security is the security of machine learning systems powering decision making of companies and autonomous systems. It has been proven that simple changes in inputs can cause these systems to fail, enabling attackers another attack surface. Therefore, companies need to consider security when implementing AI solutions. Read more


AP Automation: The first finance process to automate in 2020

Thanks to machine learning and the document data extraction, validation and processing technologies it enables, ~80% no touch AP automation is possible for invoices submitted outside of the company’s Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). Additionally, companies should push foe EDI adoption to further increase no touch automation rate.

By adopting these technologies, companies can dramatically reduce manual document processing. Therefore they can reduce costs and errors while increasing compliance and employee satisfaction. According to our interviews with project managers from the Big 4 and solution providers in the space, an average Fortune 500 processes a few millions of documents manually per year and adopting the latest automation technologies can result in savings of hundreds of millions of dollars per year.

Low/ No code development: Guide to fast development in 2020

Software development is slow and expensive as it is complex and requires hiring technical resources. Furthermore, most large scale IT projects fail as demonstrated by numerous studies including this Mckinsey and Oxford joint study.

Businesses are starting to take advantage of low-code platforms to develop and deploy apps by reducing the pressure on their IT teams by minimizing hand-coding and code to be maintained. With a low-code development platform, businesses can automate time-consuming manual coding processes and speed up their app delivery. However, not all business problems are suitable for low code: simple, business driven projects are a good starting point. Read more


Autonomous Things in 2020: In-Depth Guide

Though self-driving vehicles take the front seat when we talk about autonomous things, autonomous robots and drones can also make a difference for businesses. These technologies can lead to partial or full automation of tasks involving humans today.

Transportation, retail, security and military are some of the industries with early examples of autonomous things. Autonomy will eventually revolutionize every industry.

What is Autonomous Things (AuT)?

Autonomous Things (AuT), or the Internet of Autonomous Things (IoAT), are devices that work on specific tasks autonomously without human interaction thanks to AI algorithms. These devices include robotics, vehicles,  drones, autonomous smart home devices and autonomous software.  Read more


Logical Data Warehouses in 2020: Guide to Data Virtualization

Data virtualization enable organizations to increase analytics effectiveness and reduce analytics costs by creating a virtual layer that aggregates data from multiple sources. This enables companies to access data from multiple sources without setting up a costly data warehouse or spending time on data preparation. It is also called Logical data warehouses – LDW, data federation, virtual databases, and decentralized data warehouses.

A traditional data warehouse relies heavily on ETL that needs a significant programming effort with special tools and scripting languages. A logical data warehouse creates a virtual layer that handles the ETL. Read more
