Chief Information Officers and other information technology leaders realize the importance of maintaining their information technology infrastructure capabilities in line with technological advances so their customers can get the services and performance they expect to keep their business growing. Large or small, all businesses have been impacted by the increasing availability of artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Whether it’s advanced analytics or machine learning, traditional IT infrastructure configurations don’t necessarily deliver the best performance for these applications.
