Technological innovations like artificial intelligence and automation are impacting how businesses are looking to the future investments in their organizations, and their industries as a whole. Software robotics (i.e. RPA = Robotic Process Automation), and data analytics technology are permeating just about every aspect of business going forward, and companies are seeking answers for where they should be investing in the rapidly changing environment happening around them.
