MESSAGE FROM sajid A. khan


Founder of HCIT Community

Dear Group Members,

Rapid digital transformation that saw years of innovation in a very short turnaround time period is something that was highly unforeseen. There are many companies that are shifting their models and technologies are getting adopted almost overnight. This phenomenon will not stop especially in some areas such as AI, which is already seeing rapid acceleration.

AI is seeing notable momentum across use cases and is becoming an increasingly normal part of human life even in a year that is anything but normal. It’s my belief that the coming year will be a big year for AI growth where many independent AI applications will deliver insights, efficiencies and cost savings for the digital marketplace.

From a technological point of view, 2021 looks to be another year of strong adoption and expanding use cases for artificial intelligence.

If you need any help with implementation of advanced technologies for your business, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Best Regards,

Sajid A. Khan

Dear Group Members,

Due to the shift to working from home, executives need to thoughtfully consider how to handle the deepening security gaps coupled with disparate computer systems. There are sophisticated software tools that can catch attacks from malignant employees as well as predict how to train and help employees when poor outcomes occur due to accidental employee behavior, such sending a mistaken file or leaving a digital door unlocked.

Employers who carefully implement trusted ways to maintain critical visibility into employee activity for the purpose of security can provide a stable and efficient working environment. Ensuring open communication along with a commitment to a human-centric security deployment approach offers an environment that furthers employer-employee relationships by increasing trust, promoting teamwork and creating unity as organizations look to accomplish their greater goals.

During times like this, please take care of yourselves and your loved ones. I know that we’re going to get through this together.

Be safe and be well!

Sincerely,

Sajid A. Khan, Your Business Partner

Dear Group Members,

According to a recent study just under a third of organizations use artificial intelligence for multiple business functions. New technologies and concepts have recently come to the market to help accelerate and improve the AI implementation process. While most of these technologies are still maturing, they have already delivered significant benefits to the organizations that have adopted them. Scaling AI transformations appears to be the most important challenge in this arena and the key limiting factor here is that AI projects are typically human-workload intensive, resulting in lengthy and expensive projects.

At times like these please take care, stay positive and find sometime for having fun and smiling. It is challenging operating under the current restrictions but I am confident we will get through this, together.

Be safe and be well!

Dear Group Members,

No organization can afford to sit back and ignore the potential of artificial intelligence (AI). Yet, rushing to adopt AI just because the technology exists can be just as damaging to a business. To fully realize the potential of AI, you need to approach it with a clear business goal or need in mind. In other words, you need to identify and narrow down to the most valuable AI opportunities for your business. It can even mean your approach could be quite different from that of your competitors. Therefore, you should take those steps which involves looking at what your business is trying to achieve, what unique challenges your business is facing and then identifying potential solutions through AI.

At times like these, the problems list can be long for all of us; however, I am convinced that we will get through this as long as we do not lose our self-confidence and our energy. It is all in our hands.

Be safe and be well!

Sincerely,

Sajid A. Khan, Your Business Partner

Dear Group Members,

Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used to analyze data and deep learning (DL) is one of the more complex aspects of AI. Artificial intelligence does not exist on its own. It is a technology that fits into a larger solution to address a business issue. No market is able to sustain relevancy while remaining stagnant. How and when to update deep learning systems, as they are used in more and more places, has become of paramount importance. The ability to analyze the data sets is critical both for initial feature engineering and as an ongoing process to keep the systems relevant and accurate.

At times like these, the problems list can be long for all of us but I am convinced that we will get through this as long as we do not lose our self-confidence and our energy. It is all in our hands.

Dear Group Members,

One of the many benefits of using artificial intelligence is to help us view societal problems from a different perspective. While there’s been many conversations about how AI might be misused, we must not overlook the many ways AI can be used for good. Artificial intelligence, powered by deep-learning algorithms, is already in use in healthcare and also being used to predict the development of diseases across a healthcare network. Knowing the reality that as our global issues are complex so AI is providing us with a valuable tool to augment human efforts to come up with solutions to vexing problems.

These are challenging times, but we will get through them. Let’s look after each other so we can come through this crisis stronger than when we went into it.

Be safe and be well!

Dear Group Members,

AI is becoming an increasingly important part of our daily lives. From intelligent assistants to facial recognition, AI technology is starting to permeate all sorts of our personal interactions. With the sudden boost in AI usage, people are beginning to question just how safe this technology actually is. In many instances, AI and machine learning have the potential to provide significant benefit to end-users. However, we have reason to be concerned that there is the potential of AI systems going wrong. The future of artificial intelligence can be either exciting or worrisome, depending on who you talk to. Some believe that AI may take over humanity, while others believe that we’re far from AI achieving anything close to human intelligence. Will AI be our final discovery? All we can do is stay educated and keep the discussions around AI flowing for now.

These are unsettling times and COVID-19 is very evidently impacting our personal and professional lives but please prioritize the health and safety of yourselves and others in your community, always.

Be safe and be well!

Sincerely,

Sajid A. Khan, Your Business Partner

Dear Group Members,

Organizations throughout the world, whether they are public or private, are taking measures to contain and mitigate COVID-19. These actions can involve the processing of different types of personal data. Timely action can serve as employee data protection preparation for the future. A proactive approach to privacy and data protection helps organizations increase efficiency, compliance & trust, and the pandemic we are witnessing should give rise to doubling down on what we do with our workforce information governance. As this crisis will pass, it is important to operate now and in the future with the best interests of employee data privacy in mind with transparency, lawfulness and fairness. This is especially important as you balance the needs to collect and process workforce data with the data privacy rights of the employee.

These are unsettling times and COVID-19 is very evidently impacting our personal and professional lives, and those that we love. It’s challenging operating under the current restrictions but I am confident we will get through this together.

Be safe and be well!

Dear Group Members,

New technologies demand nearly zero latency and 100% dependability. With the growth of technologies like 5G, IoT, autonomous vehicles, sensors, and augmented or virtual reality, the number of internet-connected devices may expand. The real-time speeds required for these devices and applications, especially life-dependent critical systems like public services, hospital monitors or self-driving cars cannot be compromised. Edge computing, which brings resources closer to the end-users can help solve this problem and reduce overall network bandwidth constraints. While this will be a decade-long push, the edge build out is already happening. As 5G development and deployment is already in progress, large companies are already building their own edge networks and making significant advances.

As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, people are coming together to help one another now more than ever. So let us be thankful to all the people who are working to save lives and keep communities safe during this pandemic.

There will be days of toughness, but be sure they won’t last.

Dear Group Members,

Identities are the new security perimeter, making the integration of network technologies and security essential for any organization.

The cyber security industry has seen many progressive and well connected next-generation products recently appear in the market along with the services that support them. In order for those products and services to succeed, the organizations creating them need to create tighter integration between network technology and security.

The future of digital business is being built on the foundation of smart, connected, contextually intelligent products and real-time services that enhance and add value to customer experiences. The disconnect between IT and security needs to be fixed so existing new digital business models can flourish and grow.

In addition to the immeasurable suffering and loss of life, the best cure for global health challenge Coronavirus (COVID-19) is prevention. This is our moral responsibility to contribute and add our efforts to eliminate its spread not only for our own well-being but for society as a whole.

There will be days of toughness, but be sure they won’t last.

Be safe and be well!

Dear Group Members,

New technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality, the Internet of Things (IoT) and edge computing, are driving adoption in rapid cycles. These new waves of technology, a growing cloud base and the radical geopolitical scene of 2020 are poised to challenge nations, industries, organizations and even individuals inadvertently.

Unfortunately, many companies are not well prepared to face these challenges, relying on security practices and baselines that are all over the map. For organizations relying on obsolete and inadequate IT systems that are rarely updated and barely protected, the risk of cyber-attack is higher than ever. Organizations must step up to the cyber threat challenges ahead by putting proactive missions into action by knowing what threats lurk ahead for our ever-evolving and advancing IT landscape.

Are you facing such challenges? Please join discussions at our communities and groups related to these challenges.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Dear Group Members,

The holiday season is now over and it’s time to resume achieving your objectives for this year and beyond.

Analytics is probably the most important tool a company has to gain customer insights. This is why the Big Data industry is set to reach over $273 Billion by 2023 and so many have heavily invested in not only collecting data, but enabling data for the enterprise.

As AI and machine learning continue to develop, the way we use analytics also continues to grow and change. While in the past, businesses focused on harvesting descriptive data about their customers and products; now, they’re pulling both predictive and prescriptive learnings from the information they gather. We don’t always need complex algorithms running on our data. Sometimes we just want to know where our financials stand or how much traffic our social media pages are getting.

On behalf of MicroAgility, Inc., I wish you all the best for 2020.

Thank you very much for your time and continued support.

Best Regards,

Sajid A. Khan
