There has been no rest for IT teams over the festive season. The announcement of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities came while many people were still recovering from their New Year hangovers, catching some organisations by surprise.
On behalf of the WARDY IT Solutions team, I would like to thank all of our customers and partners for their support in 2017. I wish everyone a fabulous Festive Season and all the best for the New Year!
I recently had the opportunity to be the keynote presenter at the QUT Doctoral Consortium for the School of Information Systems. I had the privileged to hear about the amazing research the students had undertaken to solve complex computer science problems.
One of the things I love about my role is the ability to meet with customers throughout the APAC region, gain a deep understanding of their business and demonstrate to them how easily data can be used to improve business outcomes.

Artificial Intelligence is one of the fastest moving technologies today with application in almost every industry scenario ranging from assisting with the planting and harvest of crops to pricing algorithms for ride sharing services.
