Many Technologies are Defined as “Innovative” — such as Cloud Infrastructure, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, and Robotics – Accenture-Israel CEO Shimon Elkabetz

Shimon Elkabetz in a media interview added that many technologies are defined as “innovative” — such as cloud infrastructure, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and robotics — have existed for several years but have only recently matured. He thinks that many organizations in the industry haven’t really made use of these technologies until now, but rather regarded them as tests or side pilots, in order to assess whether they indeed contain solutions that could assist them. However, he noted that the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has accelerated this process, and today many large organizations realize that they must adapt their business strategy and incorporate these innovations into their core systems. “What we do as a company is take all of these technologies and capabilities and incorporate them into the industry,” Elkabetz said.
