Investments in cloud and AI still look strong, while advances in edge computing help to make exciting new IoT applications affordable and practical. Companies are eager to take a look at technologies that enable making decisions at the point of application as they seek to increase personalization and create human experiences. Sallomi also explores the implications these new technologies will have on building a diverse workforce.

The more and more power that we push out to the edge, the greater the opportunity for immediate personalized interaction…this idea of devices at the edge helps us be more effective in our employment and also enhances the customer's really fundamentally transforming the way work gets done.
