In the coming year, I believe we will see the dawn of new applications that are able to understand this data and provide valuable insights. An example of this new artificial intelligenceI/machine learning world are new intent-based tools and platforms at the edge and in the cloud, along with automation at scale. Innovative providers will use ML/AI to get predictive analytics, detect patterns and deliver greater value to their service.
