There are seven key megatrends driving the future of enterprise IT. You can
remember them all with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands

Data, Robotics, Internet of Things, CyberSecurity.
In this post we dive deeper into Artificial Intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence is the discipline of thinking machines. The field is
