Technology adoption varies from sector to sector, company to company and department to
department. We asked 4000 leaders about their views on technology to find out which had the
potential to cause serious innovation.
It might be surprising to know that
although its adoption levels are lower than other emerging
technologies, artificial intelligence is most exciting to HR leaders. However, chatbots are what
people want to hear less about.
How did the other 4 technologies fare? The
results were fascinating
Transformation technologies like IoT, blockchain, AI, cloud security, autonomous and chatbots

Using IBM Watson’s cognitive capabilities, companies can quickly differentiate their customer service quality by being more pro active and responsive to customer needs. Simply put, chatbots and virtual agents are the future of customer interactions. Building apps from scratch that incorporate natural language processing, speech to text recognition, visual recognition, analytics, and artificial intelligence requires broad expertise in these disciplines, large staffs, and a huge financial commitment. Making use of IBM Watson cognitive services brings these capabilities in-house quickly and without the capital investment that would be needed to develop the technologies within an organization.
Customers have caught on that support interactions are getting better. When they reach out, they’ve come to expect an instant response that says “we’re here for you”. When they want information, it’s expected to be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible. Essentially, they come to expect efficiency during support interactions.
As a result, businesses are becoming more cognizant of their self- service offerings. Customers want to be left feeling empowered; it’s even better when they can do so on their own. Self-service saves time for agents, cuts down on organizational costs, and leaves the customer with a positive outlook of a brand.
This eBook delves into how AI can enhance your customer self-service offerings with automatically-generated knowledge bases, content cues for your service agents, and chatbots.
If you’re looking to improve sales performance, optimize ecommerce, implement marketing automation, expand social media, deliver better customer service, or utilize accurate Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) – it’s all Oracle.
And, the icing on the cake? All of these solutions are integrated, but modular. We offer a breadth of solutions that you can not only buy individually, but can also easily integrate with existing or additional solutions as your business needs grow.

When Facebook released their bot feature, M, the virtual assistant living inside their Messenger platform, it was billed as the next generation of how people connect and interact with the internet. Since then, over 18,000 companies have created their own branded chatbots with the help of Facebook’s platform.
Never ones to miss out on a trend, Microsoft, Google and Apple have all been hard at work developing their own integrated chatbot features. Brands of all shapes and sizes, from American Express to 1800-Flowers to Domino’s Pizza, all have their own chatbots, proving the versatility of the concept. As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said at the 2016 Build conference, “As an industry, we are on the cusp of a new frontier that pairs the power of natural human language with advanced machine intelligence.”
As Singapore’s largest insurance force, Prudential Singapore needed a scalable and cost-effective solution to help financial consultants respond quicker to in-depth product and policy questions.
Partnering with IBM, they developed askPRU, an industry-first chatbot with IBM Cloud and Watson capabilities. Handling over 1,000 commonly asked questions in real-time, askPRU reduced call volume by 32% within six months and enhanced the responsiveness of over 4,600 consultants. Enabling consultants to focus on more complex queries, askPRU also provides accurate expertise to help deliver consistently exceptional service.
Learn how Watson technology became central to the Prudential Singapore business and enhanced their customer experience.

Oracle earns a leadership spot in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms. Read this complementary report and learn how Oracle continues to build on its platform with chatbot support and expanded analytics, and to enhance its high-productivity development tool.
Zoom out to the bigger picture, though, and you see that Facebook is just one channel. If you use Skype, Slack, Kik, and digital voice assistants, you’ll have to build six or eight of these endpoints straight away. And chatbots are being asked to handle ever more complex responses, so you better build on a platform of machine learning and natural language processing to keep up.
That’s why the question enterprise developers should be asking is not “Which chatbot service do I start with?” but “Which platform will let me crank out a chatbot today and also support multiple channels and integrate with back-end systems as these chatbots take off?”
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is evolving at a rising pace, now able to mine vast amounts of data and learn from experience, with the potential to reshape entire industries. One application of this technology is to streamline how businesses interact with their customers, through 'chatbots'.To look at how chatbots will change certain aspects of doing business, such as customer service, Ceylon FT also weighed in with Oracle's Vice President of Product Management, Suhas Uliyar, for his insight on the matter.

Digital transformation encompasses both technological and human components. While many initiatives focus on ensuring that a company’s multi-cloud infrastructure is agile enough to meet changing demands around cloud mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and big data, it’s equally important to empower business workers with the modern digital tools they need to be successful today. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can play a vital role on both of these fronts. In fact, 78 percent of CIOs and senior IT leaders are already looking to AI to address complexity,1 and by 2019, 30 percent of IT service desks will utilize machine learning to free up support capacity.2
The magnitude of change has forced companies to take stock of the experience they offer employees. As digital natives3 enter and advance in the workforce, talent retention is now a top priority. These workers expect to have the best tools; 93 percent of millennials cited modern and up-to-date technology as one of the most

Your customers aren't the only ones who can benefit from advancing artificial intelligence (AI) support — your employees can, too. Chatbots help employees who service customers, and you can build them with mature AI components. But success requires a focus on tasks rather than job replacement as well as a cyborg-like division between human and machine tasks. This report helps infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros determine which tasks are best executed by people and which are best left to machines, with use cases describing how that looks.
