While at SAP TechEd in October, I talked with people about artificial intelligence and other leading technologies. One conversation took me out of my core zone and into how the company is looking at blockchain and other ways of providing distributed ledgers. My latest Search Data Management article discusses what I learned.
ThoughSpot is an analytics company and they made a number of announcements at their conference this week. One that caught my eye was about SearchIQ, a new product for natural language processing (NLP). It layers text and voice query on top of their platform. Read more in my latest article on forbes.com.
After annoying delays, my latest Tech Target article is up. It covers two companies I met at this summer’s Think Big Festival in Couer d’Alene.
