Accelerate your journey to AI with our curated 2020 webinar playlist — all available on-demand.

In Entering the New Normal, Forrester predicts that “Smart firms will retire technical debt fast, then ride the tech disruption wave.” Technical debt in the form of legacy systems and disparate outdated tools not only drains IT resources but can also hinder efforts toward innovation.

Digital transformation through artificial intelligence (AI) can help companies shed technical debt and “ride the tech disruption wave,” but it requires a modern, solid information architecture. IBM Cloud Pak® for Data is a unified data and AI platform that provides a robust foundation for AI by modernizing how companies collect, organize, and analyze data.

Accelerate your journey to AI with our curated 2020 webinar playlist — all available on-demand. We will cover the latest updates to our integrated platform, its cost savings and flexible deployment options, as well as its all-inclusive services for data management, DataOps, and data science.
