Tackle Intelligent Digital Mesh in 2018

The year 2017 saw organizations continue to invest in digital models, business platforms, and a rich, intelligent set of services to mature their digital strategy while continuing to build a modern workplace. Gartner calls this trend of entwining of people, devices, content, and services the “intelligent digital mesh”. In 2017, over 60% of KLST customer projects were related to developing dynamic, flexible, and autonomous mobile-first solutions that use Artificial Intelligence to connect people, businesses, devices, content, and services to accelerate digital outcomes.

As we say goodbye to the year 2017 and welcome year 2018, I wanted to take a moment to highlight KL Software Technologies (KLST) software+services that is helping our customers accelerate their digital business evolution.

“Narrow Artificial Intelligence”

Artificial Intelligence (AI) discussions and conversations are everywhere but companies can see rapid ROI using “Narrow AI” that is typically focused on doing a “very specific” task. For example, KLST recently developed a bot called “Oracle” for a customer where employees can use Natural Language to interact with that Bot to get answers to their questions, such as “Where is the Employee Handbook?”, “Who is the manager of Joseph Stein?” or “How many vacation days do I have”. KLST AI team develops Bots using LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligence Service), Azure Bot Service (powered by Microsoft Bot Framework), .NET/NodeJS, and REST endpoint integration with SharePoint, Salesforce, SAP, and other enterprise software.

“Intelligent apps” and “Augmented Analytics”

Related to intelligent apps is an increasing demand for Augmented Analytics that uses machine learning for insight sharing, discovery, and enterprise reporting. KLST specializes in developing “intelligent” hybrid apps using Xamarin, Kony, Angular4/Ionic2, with machine learning insights provided by Microsoft Graph API and Smart Data Analytics using Power BI

Corporate “Cloud Office” Revolution

In 2017, some of KLST’s on-premises customers made the choice to move core collaboration and communications applications to Microsoft Cloud leveraging KLST Cloud Migration Services. As per Gartner – “In 2018, we expect 40% to 50% of business users to have moved their core collaboration and communications systems to cloud platforms. By 2021, more than 70% of businesses will be substantially provisioned with cloud office capabilities”.
