How the Convergence of AI and IoT is Transforming Customer Support

Insights Webinars

Lately, when we talk about technological innovation, the biggest achievements involve the convergence of technologies to create functionalities that are greater than the standalone capabilities of each technology.  These intersections exemplify what we refer to as combinatorial innovation -  and are evident with such couplings as AR and IoT, and Blockchain and IoT. One of the biggest technologies to aid such innovations is AI and machine learning where it is changing not only the intellectual capabilities of machines, devices, and software but also the interaction between humans and machines.

Digitization, digital self-service, and distributed digital advisors are already disrupting a series of industries beyond basic service tasks across not only traditional customer service offerings but also industries such as service provisioning in manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, and transport industries. With this disruption follows a series of business opportunities to realize transformative value propositions, business models, services, and new revenue streams. This is the first part of a two-part article and takes a look at the rationale for the use of AIOps and some of the workplace benefits.
