Data Driven


New York City - New York - US

NEW YORK - May 15, 2019 - PRLog -- Companies are betting big on next-gen tech such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Robotics, Blockchain and 5G. They hope to solve real business problems of the customers by delivering innovative solutions and services.

In this episode of "Data Driven", we gauge consumer interest for self-driving cars, look forward to Informatica World and find out how Occidental Petroleum streamlined its core business processes.

In our top story, nothing is more exciting or data driven than the idea of autonomous cars. But the barriers blocking adoption of driverless vehicles such as vehicle and system security are not trivial.

Seems public perception will play a large role defining to what extent self-driving is adopted over the next five years. If you are a believer, a new study from the Capgemini Research Institute is going to be your cup of tea. The consultants found that consumer preference for self-driving cars is set to double within the next five years.

"The positive response from consumers suggests that they see huge benefits with autonomous vehicles in terms of fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and saving time" says Capgemini. "Such is the sense of optimism and anticipation, over half of consumers say they would be willing to pay up to 20% more for an autonomous vehicle over a standard one."

The findings also point to a changing perception of mobility, consumers believe autonomous cars will take on a larger role in their daily lives, going beyond the act of driving to also have autonomy in running errands and completing chores.

Almost half of respondents to the study would be comfortable with self-driving cars running an errand on their behalf; more than half would trust an autonomous vehicle to drop off or pick up non-driving friends and family members, while one in two expect self-driving cars to help them save time to pursue other activities – such as socializing, entertainment, working, or simply enjoying the journey.

It is clear that consumers are anticipating an autonomous future, there are even cultural and geographic factors that are driving higher anticipation for autonomous cars.

Meanwhile, what does a company do when it wants to accelerate the transformation of its information technology architecture in support of its business objectives?

Occidental Petroleum, an international oil and gas exploration and production company, targeted goals like reducing downtime and operational cost as well as enhancing production using digital capabilities. That is to say, it took an end-to-end look at how digital technologies could be applied in the organization.

"(We) strive to implement transformational technologies (that will) improve operations and increase efficiencies" says Yanni Charalambous, CIO at Occidental.

Working with global strategy pros at Accenture since 2016, the company has continued to collaborate on ways to streamline core business processes from the back office to field operations to improve operational agility and efficiency and unlock business value.
