Technology is changing the future of work. Are you ready?

Part of the For Cloud Professionals podcast series

Technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation are the future. Companies that invest in new technologies can use it as a force multiplier and reap enormous benefits, but they must retrain their manual workforce to focus on value-added activities.

Technology is changing the future of work. Are you ready?

Companies’ ability to leverage new technologies such as automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to make better use of business intelligence (BI) and analytics as a force multiplier is one key driver in their quest to separate themselves from their competition. However, the use of those technologies will also likely displace a large majority of manual workers. Companies will need to retrain those workers to focus on value-added activities to maintain a stable, reliably-employed workforce. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum and SAP’s Andreas Bitterer discuss how new technology may reshape the work, and workforce, of the future and the steps companies—and vendors—can take to help their workforce weather the changes and contribute effectively to the new work economy.

There are some use cases where AI and robotics are basically really changing the way organizations work, and how even societies work.Andy Bitterer is chief analytics evangelist at SAP in the EMEA region, working on the SAP Leonardo product management team. He is a speaker and author of numerous books on application development, object technology, data management, and the internet.
