The age of digital transformations was already underway before artificial intelligence (AI), 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) entered the picture. However, now that they’re here, they’re accelerating the rate of transformation like never before. Information Management brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “Opinion: How AI, IoT and 5G are accelerating digital transformation.”

Digital transformation is the application of technologies in every part of a business designed to improve the way value is delivered to the customers and result in a profit.

Despite their trendiness, emerging technologies like AI can be a key part of a company’s cybersecurity defense. AI can monitor company networks for suspicious users, devices, and traffic, and take precautionary measures automatically.

The IoT can consist of a company’s collection of smartphones, tablets, wearables, security cameras, vehicle guidance systems and smart warehouses These devices are under almost constant development now, and continually gaining new ways to exploit connectivity with each other.
