Bill Powell on SAP Radio: 2018 Predictions Impacting Business

Director of Enterprise Architecture for ARI, Bill Powell recently discussed transactional and analytic systems and gave his autonomous technology predictions on SAP radio.

Powell believes the combination of transactional and analytic systems into one “transalytic” system is inevitable and necessary for the two systems to keep up with the pace of businesses in 2018. Combining the two would provide a “simplified architecture” for corporations to move from reactive to proactive analysis.

In addition to the changes taking place in systems, Powell also comments on the continued evolution of autonomous vehicles. Although it will be some time before autonomous and non-autonomous vehicles fully share the road, Powell suggests there will be “a lot of movement in the vehicle-to-vehicle area” in 2018 and going forward.
