We’ve discussed the need
to redefine enterprise intelligence and what the future of intelligence
will look like for technology and business leaders, and we know that
organizations are paying attention. In fact, enterprises spent $200 billion on
data, analytics, and AI software, hardware, and services last year. That
doesn’t even include the investment in external data and internal labor costs
to further fuel intelligence initiatives.
What comes to mind when you think of intelligence within your organization? Is it having access to the latest information on key metrics, such as revenue, costs, and profit? Is it a broader view of ‘all information’ you need to make a decision?
IDC has been using the phrase “data intelligence software” to describe a category of capabilities that provide intelligence about data, and the term “data intelligence” has caught on in the industry. But not all definitions of data intelligence are equal. Let’s take a closer look at how IDC defines the term, and some permutations that have emerged.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to transform the way that marketing professionals work, and how organizations target, engage and connect with customers and prospects.

We’ve discussed how the term artificial intelligence (AI) covers a wide array of applications; just like many of these functionalities, affective computing is beginning to see some growth in the market. Spanning across computer science, behavioral psychology, and cognitive science, affective computing uses hardware and software to identify human feelings, behaviors, and cognitive states through the detection and analysis of facial, body language, biometric, verbal and/or vocal signals.
